Trio Of Companies Offer Wild West Shootout Modified Cash

VADO, N.M. — Modified entrants in the 16th annual Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park will once again chase points-fund cash sponsored by Mesilla Valley Transportation, Border Tire and Rancho Milagro.

Additionally, with purse and bonus boosts, courtesy of both Rio Grande Waste Services and Rancho Milagro, one Modified driver could win $21,000 during the course of the January 8-16 miniseries.

A $1,000 payoff has been posted for the champion of the six-race Modified miniseries, which includes four $2,000-to-win features as well as a pair of $1,000-to-win events.

The division’s total points fund boasts $3,000 in cash — including $700 for second, $500 for third, $400 for fourth and fifth — from the title sponsorship of Mesilla Valley Transportation and Border Tire and presenting sponsor Rancho Milagro.

Additionally, details were recently revealed for the Rio Grande Waste Services Four or More Challenge, which offers a $10,000 bonus to a Modified driver, who can win four-or-more features during the six race series.

“The parity in the Modified division at the Wild West Shootout is second-to-none, and each year we see multiple winners during the miniseries. This year though, with the added purse and bonus money we could see the most intense Modified action in the history of the event. If a driver can sweep the week they could win as much as $21,000, and that’s pretty cool,” noted event director Ben Shelton.

“The growth in the Modified division at the Wild West Shootout can be directly attributed to the support we receive from our great marketing partners. We are very thankful to have their relentless support in our corner, and I encourage everyone to please support their businesses whenever you can. “
