Shaw Trucking has been a longtime supporter of the Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts, and the company’s great support will continue into the 2022 edition of the event.

The Minnesota-based company will be the presenting sponsor of the $25,000-to-win Super Late Model finale. On Sunday, January 16 the Rio Grande Waste Services 50 presented by Shaw Trucking will roar to life at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.

The 50-lap event, which wraps up six races in nine days for the Dirt Track Bank Super Late Models presented by Black Diamond Race Cars pays $1,000 just to take the green flag with a total purse of over $65,000.

“Over the past several years, Don Shaw and Shaw Trucking have been great supporters of the Wild West Shootout. All that you need to know about Don’s love for the sport is that when Rio Grande Waste Services gave the finale a giant purse increase, Don was fully supportive of moving from title sponsor to presenting sponsor of the finale,” event promoter Chris Kearns said. “Events like the Wild West Shootout don’t happen without sponsors like Don Shaw and Shaw Trucking. I’m very thankful to have their support”

The total payout for the Rio Grande Waste Services 50 presented by Shaw Trucking on Sunday, January 16 is as follows:
1)$25,000 2)$10,000 3)$5,000 4)$3,000 5)$2,000 6)$1,500 7)$1,250 8)$1,200 9)$1,100 10-24)$1,000

With the Wild West Shootout offering five features paying $5,000 to win and a $25,000-to-win finale, a driver able to pull off the feat of sweeping the miniseries would depart New Mexico with over $353,000 in earnings, including the Penske Racing Shocks $300,000 Paydirt Jackpot bonus as well the $3,000 champion’s check.

Don Shaw founded Shaw Trucking in 1983. Throughout the years, the Minnesota-based company has expanded from not only providing trucking services to customers and contractors, but into site preparation, adding heavy equipment and acquiring pit sites for both import and export materials.
