Wisconsin-based Pro Power Racing Engines is once again adding extra cash to three Dirt Track Bank Super Late Model programs presented by Black Diamond Race Cars during the upcoming 16th annual Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.

On January 8, 9, and 15 drivers, who finish just outside of a transfer spot in Dirt Track Bank Super Late Model B-main action at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park, will get a chance at redemption. Each of the three nights, the first 10 non-transfer drivers will take part in the 10-lap Pro Power Racing Dash.

Each dash posts a $2,000 purse with the winner receiving $1,000 or the option to forfeit the winner’s purse and start at the tail of the night’s feature.

“Bill and Josie Schlieper are two of our biggest and most-tenured supporters. With the money they add to the event, it not only gives racers a chance to make some extra cash on an otherwise challenging night, but it also gives one racer the chance to keep racing if they elect to forfeit their Dash win and start on the tail of the feature,” event director Ben Shelton noted. “Additionally, it’s an asset to racers in all divisions to have Bill onsite throughout the event. More than once, I’ve seen him helping drivers in all divisions with their engines, even though they might not be a client of his.”

Located in Sullivan, Wisconsin Pro Power Racing Engines builds race-winning and championship-winning powerplants for a wide variety of motorsports divisions. From the dirt track to the paved track to off-road racing, the company has clients across North America.

Online sales of single and multi-day tickets continue for the Southwest’s popular miniseries, which features six nights of racing from January 8 – 16 for Super Late Models, Modifieds and X-Mods at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.

A six-day general admission combo ticket is available for $150 and includes a pit-pass upgrade for one night as chosen by the purchaser as well as a free Wild West Shootout seat cushion.

Additionally, reserved seating is now available for 6-day packages and is $150 plus a $12 processing fee per package from the ticket vendor. Reserved 6-day packages also include a one-night pit pass upgrade as well as an event-branded seat cushion.

Individual day general admission tickets are priced at $25 per night for adults and $10 for kids ages 6-12 with children 5-and-under admitted free of charge.

Advanced tickets can be purchased online at at www.wildwestshootout.net/buy-tickets/ .

The 2022 edition of the event will be held on January 8, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 16 at the state-of-the-art, 3/8-mile oval, situated conveniently on I-10 between Las Cruces and El Paso.

Over $250,000 in prize money will be on the line during the 16th Annual Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts. The event includes six complete programs for three divisions.

Additionally, the Penske Racing Shocks $300,000 Paydirt Jackpot was recently announced, which offers a $300,000 bonus for any Super Late Model driver who can win all six nights. The bonus program also includes a $100,000 incentive for five wins and a $25,000 bonus for four miniseries victories.

Each race night finds the Dirt Track Bank Super Late Models presented by Black Diamond Race Cars, Mesilla Valley Transportation/ Border Tire Modifieds, and RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley Davidson competing in action.

Open practice sessions are slated for both January 7 and January 11.
