A familiar friend is continuing its support of the Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout. For the sixth-straight year, O’Reilly Auto parts will be the presenting sponsor of the mega miniseries, which will once again be held at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.

The Missouri-based company’s support of the mega event began in 2018 and has grown to be an intricate part of the event’s annual success.

“O’Reilly Auto Parts has been a major catalyst in the growth of the Wild West Shootout over the past several years. Their name is known nationwide as the preeminent auto parts supplier, and their support has helped our event reach new heights,” said Wild West Shootout Promoter, Chris Kearns. “In 2022 we were able to bring additional brand visibility for O’Reilly Auto Parts to the racing community in the greater New Mexico and Texas area, and we look forward to continuing to expand on that exposure as we return to the state-of-the-art oval for the second-straight year in January 2023.

“Not only does O’Reilly Auto Parts go above-and-beyond to support the Wild West Shootout each year, but they also are involved with promotions at countless tracks and events across the country. Bottom line they are a great friend to racing, so I support their company and their products, whenever I can. Similarly, I hope that other racers and fans recognize companies like O’Reilly, who support racing, and show them the support they deserve, whenever possible.”

Headquartered in Springfield, Mo., O’Reilly Auto Parts serves both professional and do-it-yourself- customers in providing automotive aftermarket parts, tools, supplies, equipment and accessories. The company has over 5,000 locations across the country.

The mega miniseries features six days of racing spanning January 7-15, 2023 with Super Late Models, Modifieds, and X-Mods contesting complete programs each day.

Over $320,000 in prize money will be on the line during the 17th Annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts. The event includes six complete programs for three divisions.
