Once the Race has been run and the Race Results Report has been printed, you can Issue the Payout Checks. This Menu Choice gives you several options for getting the contestants paid:

 

NOTE: Payouts are calculated during the printing of the Race Results Report.

| Print | Payouts & Checks | Write Checks | - Sends the payout information directly (no screen preview) to the printer and issues/prints the checks. Run the List Payouts option prior to sending the checks to the printer. Before your first check run - be sure you have set up and defined your default check printing format through | Utilities | Set Up Defaults | Check Formats |

| Print | Payouts & Checks | List Payouts | - Lists the payout information to the screen or printer. You can then use this list as the guide for hand writing the checks, or inputting them into some other accounting system.

NOTE: Run the List Payouts report to the Screen before writing checks to double check that the amounts/recipients are correct. 

| Print | Payouts & Checks | List Payouts | - Lists the payout information to the screen or printer. You can then use this list as the guide for hand writing the checks, or inputting them into some other accounting system.

Some Show Managers prefer to have the Payout Checks prepared before the Race is run. If all racers are pre-registered (no last minute registration allowed) the checks can be prepared ahead of time: 

| Print | Payouts & Checks | Pre-Race Payouts | Calculate Payouts | - Allows you to calculate the payouts based on the pre-registration information.  A tie will require you to hand-write the checks for tying amounts.

| Print | Payouts & Checks | Pre-Race Payouts | Print Checks | - Prints the checks with the Payee line left blank.

| Print | Payouts  & Checks | Pre-Race Payouts | List Payouts | - Lists the payout totals to the printer (or screen) as a guide for preparation.
