Bridgestone Contingency FTW!

Of all the contingency forms I filled out, I havent received any money, except from B-Stones. 100 bux for 3rd place. Nice. Wish the others would get on the ball.

John will help you out with Pirelli, but they are notoriously bad with paying contingency- John had a thread on the CMRA bbs about it and how to help with it iirc. Bridgestone bends over backwards to pay out and they have been that way since we started working with them about 4 years ago.

When we podium'd in races the $$ almost paid for the entire weekend... when we got the top spot it paid the entire weekend and then some!

I'm still waiting on some tire $ from TWS (Texas World Speedway). Hmmm. I'm still waiting on some VP $ from Oak Hill. I guess I gotta call to see what's going on with that.

in the same boat....

Pirelli owes me about $850 from OHR, ECR, TWS (Texas World Speedway)
VP Fuels owes me probably about $120 from OHR, ECR, TWS (Texas World Speedway)
EBC/Silkolene just paid about a week ago for OHR/ECR
Pitbull Paid for all 3 events (paid within 30 days)
Powerstands Paid some, still owes me about $150

Fyi, if any of you have EBC certs, you can redeem them through patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited as well.....he is probably about the only person in Houston that can redeem those certs for you.

I have been informed by Pirelli, that the contingency cards will be mailed out this week. Essentially American Express has been processing the data, and are now ready to issue the cards. These cards will be reloadable, so each time you win more money the cards will be reloaded. You will still have to fill out the form at the track and verify your finishes online, but the wait should be shorter as the card and everything will already be in place.

VP fuel checks are in the mail, I can't explain the delay, but they are coming.
