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 17th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.

On January 7, 8, and 14 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 from Pro Power Racing Engines are the type of people who go above and beyond to support racing. Not only are they one of our longest running sponsors, but just about every year they are on hand to not only support their clients but also any other racers who might need some engine help during the Wild West Shootout,” shared event director Ben Shelton. “With the money they add to the purse each year it gives several drivers a chance to make a little extra money on what otherwise might not have been the best of nights. We’re very grateful to have their support.”

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.

For more information on what they can offer your racing program, please visit their brand-new website at www.ProPowerRacing.com.

Associate companies supporting the Pro Power Dash include Callies Precision Engine Components, Dan Olson Racing Products, Dyer’s Top Rods, Jones Racing Products, Manley Performance, and RaceTec Pistons.


Reserved seating, six-day tickets recently became available for the motorsport’s extravaganza. They can be purchased online at www.wildwestshootout.net/buy-tickets/ and are $155, which is a $30 savings. With each package comes a complimentary, free one-day pit pass upgrade to be used on the day of the ticketholder’s preference.


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. Additionally, over $317,000 in potential bonus money has been posted. The event includes six complete programs for three divisions.

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

Additionally, an open practice session is slated for both January 6 and January 10.

Last but not least, each division will compete for a miniseries point’s championship and accompanying point fund.
