Haskovec's Return On Entry Fees Was 10-1, WSMC Says

Disputing racer Vincent Haskovec's claim that he didn't make any money racing with WSMC, the organization's Operations Manager Kenny Kopecky pointed out:<BR><BR>"RE: Haskovec and our F-1 races, in January thru March 2001 races he finished 1st, 1st and 2nd respectively. Total race pre-entry fees for those 3 races were $210 paid to WSMC. He was paid $2500 in cash awards by WSMC for those three finishes, not including any manufacturer contingency awards."<BR><BR>ALong with the information on the Haskovec controversy, Kopecky also sent two press releases, one pointing out that two chances remain to get into the WSMC Toyota Truck Drawing Entry Program by running in the WSMC F-1 races November 18 and December 16, and another pointing out that the November 18 WSMC Roadracing World 125cc GP race will pay double purse thanks to additional sponsorship from VJB Spectrum Motorsports and WSMC.<BR><BR>This year's top WSMC cash purse earner is Chuck Graves at $9705 (Haskovec is fourth at $4945) and Graves also tops the all-time WSMC cash purse list at $82,350 (Haskovec is third on the list at $19,715).
