For the third-straight year, the drivers who start from the pole position in each Dirt Track Bank Super Late Model feature contested during the January 8-16 Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park will begin the race with some extra cash already in their pockets.

The Gorsuch Performance Solutions Pole Award once again posts a $100 nightly bonus for the heat-race winner who draws the pole position for the A-main during the Schaeffer Oil Redraw, which will be held on each of the six nights of competition.

“Travis Gorsuch with Gorsuch Performance Solutions came on board with us for the 2020 edition of the Wild West Shootout, and since then has gained major traction at our event. Drivers look forward each night to the chance to draw the Gorsuch Performance Solutions Pole and the $100 that comes with it.  We are thankful to have the company continuing its support in 2022,” Wild West Shootout event manager Ben Shelton said. “Every bit of cash helps the great racers who support our event, and an extra $100 each night is a nice bonus for just drawing the pole position.”

“Meanwhile, Gorsuch Performance Solutions continues to expand at a breakneck pace. We’re excited to have the opportunity to continue to bring additional awareness and visibility to both the company’s name and the great products they have to offer.”

The company, formed in 2017, is a master distributor for Stoptech Brakes Late Model Products and Systems.

“Continuing as a marketing partner with the Wild West Shootout is a no-brainer for our company. A lot of our great customers race at the event each year, and it’s nice to be able to go out there and help them get their season started on the right foot,” Gorsuch said. “I have been very fortunate to work my entire career in motorsports, and now with my own company it has really been a dream come true. We are fortunate to have excellent relationships with the top car manufacturers and race teams, where we develop products that help teams overcome obstacles, save money, reduce their workloads and make the cars faster.”
