As a lot of people already know, KC Spurlock's check to Brian Birkhofer for $50,000 win in WV in October has bounced, a couple of times.
Now, with KC disappeared, Renegade STARS Prez Rick Gross stepped up to the plate. Since it was a STARS sanctioned event, MR. GROSS signed a check Saturday Dec. 1 for $50,000 payable to Brian Birkhofer, at the PRI show at the Dome in Indy!
This is not just a rumor, I was standing there when he signed the check.
Brian said he felt like he should call home and tell them he DID win the race.

Congrats to Brian!
Rick Gross - now THAT"S CLASS!!!!

I commend the RDR Series for making that move. Although, I wonder if they didn't feel painted in a corner with all the negative publicity. So be it. I guess in the future, they will take steps to ensure the promoters pay up. Congrats to Brian. Well deserved (finally!).
