Dereck Ramirez Grabs Second-Straight Modified Win At Wild West Shootout Wednesday

Story By: WILD WEST SHOOTOUT – VADO, NM – Dereck Ramirez banked his second-straight Mesilla Valley Transportation / Border Tire Modified presented by Rancho Milagro victory Wednesday evening in the 17th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.

Tyler Wolff led the first two circuits before Ramirez inched ahead for the lead. The duo battled side-by-side for the next few laps before Ramirez began to inch away from the field.

The Woodward, Okla. racer went on to dominate the remainder of the event, crossing the finish line 3.590 seconds ahead of Wolff. Tenth-starting Tanner Mullens was third with Ricky Alvarado and Darron Fuqua completing the Top 5.

North Dakota’s Lucas Rodin got the monkey off his back and picked up the victory in the Shocker Hitch X-Mod feature presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson division.

Rodin spent much of the feature battling Gabe Hodges for the lead before surging ahead to get the victory.

Jesse Haynie, Gabe Hodges, Jimmy Ray, and Dalton Ragsdale completed the Top-5 finishers.
