Dirt Track Bank Returns as Wild West Shootout Super Late Model Title Sponsoradmin
VADO, N.M. (September 15, 2021) — For the third-straight year the Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts’ headline Super Late Model division will once again boast title sponsorship from Dirt Track Bank.
The six-race mini-series, which runs from January 8-16 at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park, will be known as the Dirt Track Bank Super Late Models presented by Black Diamond Race Cars, bringing the financial institution’s name to the forefront throughout the mid-winter action that also includes racing for the Modified and X-Mod divisions.
Based in Malvern, Iowa, Dirt Track Bank caters to the specialized needs of all those involved in the dirt-track racing industry. The affiliate of Malvern Bank offers race fans the opportunity to make deposits with a firm that provides services such as loans for racers looking to purchase haulers or expand their motorsports businesses as it strives to fulfill its role as the Official Bank of Dirt Track Racing.
“We’ve been calling Malvern Bank ‘The Official Bank of Dirt Track Racing’ for years, and in our quest to increase the bank’s core depositor base we made the decision in 2019 to take the next step and actually create a completely separate online bank that everyone involved with dirt track racing could call their own,” said Malvern Bank president Jay Burdic. “We’re continuing to grow Dirt Track Bank and spread the word about exactly what we have to offer, and the Wild West Shootout gives us a great opportunity to get a fast start toward our 2022 goals.
“If most race fans are like me, once January rolls around we’re all tired of the cold and snow and ready to watch some racing, whether we do it in person or at home. The Wild West Shootout provides a captive audience, which allows us to get the word out that Dirt Track Bank is unlike anything that fans have seen before, and that their deposits into Dirt Track Bank will be used to fund the race haulers that get our favorite drivers from track-to-track throughout the year.”
Both Dirt Track Bank and Malvern Bank have deep roots in dirt track racing via their partnerships. Additionally, both companies provide financial assistance to teams, tracks, and individuals throughout the dirt industry.
“As we head into the third year of their support of the Wild West Shootout, I truly can’t say enough good things about what Jay (Burdic) and Dirt Track Bank have meant to our event. The have brought so much to us both personally and professionally. Additionally, they are a great asset to the sport as they support countless tracks, series, and drivers, while also providing financing for the haulers utilized by many of our sport’s race teams,” Wild West Shootout event manager Ben Shelton said.
