We have sat back and said nothing for so long because we want to recover our trucks.Well we all have heard the story according to Mike Fonder. Now that we have recovered our trucks, mind you only 4 of the trucks, all on our own, with no help from the promoter that hired us to go down there and work for him. We all know who the is. Having said that, the Colombians are not to blame 100% for the **** we have been put through. I am going to give a short form for now for the book of events will be out soon.
It has been a little over a year since we were hired by AP Motorsports to go to Colombia to do shows. All was great to start but everything was being rushed. The 1st 6 or so shows went okay, money was paid for the events. Then all **** broke loose. No money to send us home, being forced out of our trailers, being told by Fonder we could not leave individually for we were all on one bill of lading, documents being changed, values of our trucks being dropped, and never able to get a straight answer from anyone, other than just do as you are told or else. Come Sept. we being Darren Cox, Kirk Dabney & Dan Weeks, were abandon with no clue as to where our equipment was located. Come the end on Jan. Darren Cox went to Colombia to search and find out what was really going on. He had no clue as to the location of the equipment, could not speak the language, and hit every road block that could be put up. Statements about actions by Darren was made, emails not returned, nor phone calls from Fonder at this point. But there was a document signed by Fonder ordering that no information was to be given to no one other than himself or his wife Lisa that was given to Mike Quintero. Power of attorney signed over to Mike Quintero to sign titles, bill of sales, etc for all equipment and cargo to be exported. Why would you do this? The story continues with backing documentation to ALL statement made by our party being the Darren Cox, Kirk Dabney & Dan Weeks. There are emails after emails, all in black and white to the action that we were having to fight and over come. We as a team want everyone to know the real truth about the action in Colombia and the man that hired us to work for him. If you have a question or have heard a part of this story and want to ask a question please feel free and we will answer.
