“We can’t say enough about Royal Jones and Chris Stepan for rolling out the red carpet for us as we make preparations to take the Wild West Shootout to FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park,” event promoter, Chris Kearns said. “We also are excited about the feedback we’ve already received from racers, fans, and sponsors regarding the upcoming year’s Wild West Shootout. Vado Speedway Park is a top-notch facility that will offer all attendees amazing experiences and amenities.

“No doubt we have a lot of work to do as we prepare for the new venue in 2022, but it makes all of the hard work a little easier when you know that you have such an awesome new home awaiting you.”

As preparations continue to be made, one aspect has been finalized. Online sales of single and multi-day tickets have begun for the Southwest’s popular miniseries, which features six nights of racing from January 8 – 16 for Super Late Models, Modifieds and X-Mods at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.
