January 4, 2020 at Vado Speedway Park $5,000 to win


In 2019 Ricky Weiss was the series rookie of the year and finished everywhere on the podium except that top spot. Saturday night that all changed as he captured his first World of Outlaws tour victory at Vado Speedway Park. It wasn't an easy feat as he had to hold off defending series champ Brandon Sheppard and Drydene teammate Chris Madden who rounded out the podium. Ricky started in the third position and took the lead at lap 14 in route to his win. Former series champs Darrell Lanigan and Mike Marlar rounded out the top 5.


The three day Battle at the Border show will wrap up Sunday with a $15,000 to win finale. Hot laps are scheduled to begin at 3pm MT on Dirtvision.com.
