Weiss starts '23 season with podium at Wild West Shootout
Ricky Weiss made the trek to Vado Speedway Park (Vado, N.M.) for the 17th annual Wild West Shootout to begin his busy 2023 season.
Following a third-place qualifying effort, Weiss finished runner-up in his heat race behind eventual race-winner Jonathan Davenport. At the drop of the green flag in the $10,000-to-win feature, Weiss fell back three positions from his fifth-place starting position. Crawling his way back through the field, Ricky brought his Sniper Chassis to a third-place podium finish.
On Sunday evening, Ricky recorded another runner-up finish in his heat placing him on the fourth row for the second $10,000 feature of the week. Weiss ran inside the top 10 for all 40 laps and grabbed a fifth-place finish at the checkered flag.
Action resumes on Wednesday afternoon for round three of the Wild West Shootout.
