    Default Gateway Dirt Nationals paid nothing if you weren't in the A Main

    Apparently if you did not qualify for the A Main you did not get paid a penny at the Gateway Dirt Nationals. No tow money, nothing. Zero. It was a $300 entry fee to get in also. I was wondering why they did not publish the purse, now we know. I also heard the payoff was terrible. Anyone else hear this?

    Word on street is that the payoff was very bad, I think Friday night total purse was $11,000 and Saturday purse was better but not for what was charged to get in. Also have you noticed how quite it has been since this race has been run, with only DOD giving it some reviews, not much else about it. We never heard if Bloomquist tires were right. Also understand that there were some cleanup issues at the dome that those people were not happy about, just curious to see what develops with this

    This is correct. We were in a C main Friday and a B Main Saturday and recieved nothing. Terrible. Spent lots on entry fee, pit passes, fuel, hotel,etc. We consistently asked officials about the payoff and they tried to play it off and act as if they did not know. We later found out why. After all the money made on the event the promoter should do the right thing and mail a check to each driver. We will not be back.

    This information doesn't bode well for future renditions of this event.

    Only Bloomquist, the mod winner, the promoter, Dirt on Dirt, area businesses and few others made money on this race. All the other racers paid in alot of money and went home with a little or nothing. They did a great job of promoting this race. They convinced alot of people before and after that it was a huge deal and great for the sport (lol). I didn't go and will not go if they have it again.

    I think perverton should cough up some purse money from his cut of advertisements!!! hahahhahahahhahaaa

    On the serious side that is downright crooked and grounds for being a one shot deal if true.

    Well if this is true probably no need in opening Mansfield it doesn't look like a good location for a dirt track anyway to me.

    Would you goto work if your employer couldn't tell you what you were going to be paid? I don't think Cody is the one with the problem......

    Not exactly the whole story. Some how the promoter didnt pay the winner all his money one year. Now idk if he finished paying him or not. Winners purse was $30k and i think he paid him $20k. The place was standing room only so he made $$.
