Continuing their support of the mega miniseries for the third-straight year, Contractors & Developers (C&D) Bonding will once again sponsor the green flag at the Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.

Since joining the event as a sponsor in 2021 the western-based has received considerable exposure on every start and restart during the six-race affair.

“C&D Bonding’s continued support of the Wild West Shootout brand is another driving factor that has enabled the event to grow and thrive for 17 years now. Owner, Phil Vega has always been a great supporter of dirt track racing. Over the past several years he’s helped the sport by sponsoring tracks, series, and various Dirt Late Model teams,” notes event promoter Chris Kearns. “In fact, C&D Bonding has been a sponsor of mine since 2009, when they sponsored Santa Maria Speedway.

“Via their sponsorship of the green flag, C&D Bonding has received a great deal of exposure for their company over the past two years, and it’s exciting to have them back again for 2023. I know that the racing community is extremely loyal to the businesses who support racing, and I hope that anyone, who has a need for any of the services provided by C&D Bonding, will support the company.”
