Companies from across North America are supporting the 17th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts. Among the great marketing partners with the event are New Mexico’s own Rancho Milagro Racing, Eagle Moon Hemp, and Top of the World Ranch.

For the second-straight year Rancho Milagro Racing is the presenting sponsor for the Mesilla Valley Transportation / Border Tire Modifieds. Thanks to the added support the class races four nights for the increased $2,000 to win purse along with a pair of $1,000-to-win programs.

Additionally, thanks to Eagle Moon Hemp, the ShockerHitch.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson race four nights for the increased $1,000 to win purse along with a pair of $500-to-win races.

A third entity, Top of the World Ranch is also a part of the continued purse increase.

“I’m thankful to have Ed and Trudy “GT” (Healy) on board with us for the second year in a row as we once again hold the event in New Mexico,” said event marketing director Jason Babyak. “They are the sponsors of their grandsons (Johnny and Stormy Scott), who are event regulars. The Healy family also supports FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park as well as several other racers, so this is a great fit for them for added exposure for their businesses.”

Out of Taos, NM, Rancho Milagro grows organic hay for dairies, operates a mother cow calf operation and is heavily involved in team roping. The group's main ranch is called Top of The World Ranch and the Healy Foundation funds multiple land and water initiatives in the region. In addition to a strong focus on water conservation and irrigation issues, Ed and Trudy “GT” Healy also support several racing teams, including Scott Brothers Racing and team roping where they sponsor Rancho Milagro Team Roping and the New Mexico Rodeo Association.

Out of Deming, NM, Eagle Moon Hemp offers a variety of CBD products wholesale as well as retail direct from the manufacturer. For their raw CBD products, they have distillate which typically contains about 80% CBD and comes in two varieties. Full-spectrum contains less than 0.3% THC and a T-Free Distillate that contains no-detectable amounts of THC via third party testing.
