Shaw Trucking is a long-tenured supporter of the Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts, and the company’s great support will continue into the 2023 edition of the event.
The Minnesota-based company will once again be the presenting sponsor of the $25,000-to-win Super Late Model finale. On Sunday, January 15 the Rio Grande Waste Services 50 presented by Shaw Trucking will conclude the mega miniseries at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.
New for 2023, an additional $3,350 has been spread from fifth to 14th in the finale.
The 50-lap event, which wraps up six races in nine days for the Dirt Track Bank Super Late Models presented by Black Diamond Race Cars pays $1,000 just to take the green flag with a total purse of over $68,000.
“Don Shaw and Shaw Trucking are great friends to the Wild West Shootout. Each year Don does whatever he can to support the event, and he’s the epitome of a team player. I’m grateful for not only his support of the event but also his friendship,” event promoter Chris Kearns said. “I’m really excited to see who wins the $25,000 Rio Grande Waste Services 50 presented by Shaw Trucking in January, and who knows, they might also be racing for a $300,000 Penske Shocks Paydirt Bonus that night too.”
The increased total payout for the Rio Grande Waste Services 50 presented by Shaw Trucking on Sunday, January 15 is as follows: 1)$25,000 2)$10,000 3)$5,000 4)$3,000 5)$2,500 6)$2,000 7)$1,750 8)$1,600 9)$1,500 10)$1,400 11)$1,300 12)$1,200 13)$1,100 14)$1,050 15-24)$1,000
Additionally, the 2023 edition of the Penske Racing Shocks $300,000 Paydirt Jackpot 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.
With the Wild West Shootout offering five features now paying $10,000 to win and the $25,000-to-win Rio Grande Waste Services finale presented by Shaw Trucking, a driver able to pull off the feat of sweeping the miniseries would depart Arizona with over $378,000 in earnings including the Penske Racing Shocks $300,000 Paydirt Jackpot bonus as well as the $3,000 champion’s check.
Reserved seating, six-day tickets recently became available for the motorsport’s extravaganza. They can be purchased online at 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, and RHRSwag.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.
