Wild West Shootout
Bonuses Reign Supreme at 2024 Wild West Shootout
VADO, N.M. (Nov. 2, 2023) — Not only will over $320,000 in purse money be on the line during the course of the 18th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park on Jan. 6-14, but there will also once again be cash bonuses up for grabs for competitors in Super Late Models, Modifieds, and X-Mods.
If a driver can win all six Dirt Track Bank Super Late Model features presented by Black Diamond Race Cars, he or she will receive a $300,000 bonus as part of the Penske Racing Shocks $300,000 Paydirt Jackpot.
The bonus program also includes a $100,000 incentive for five wins and a $25,000 bonus for four miniseries victories during the January 6-14, 2024 mega miniseries at the state-of-the-art New Mexico oval. A Super Late Model driver able to sweep the week by winning five $10,000-to-win features, the $25,000 finale and the $3,000 point fund would depart the desert with over $378,000.
In 2023 Jonathan Davenport won the first three Super Late Model events and led laps in the next three programs, but was unable to crack victory lane again to claim a portion of the Penske Racing Shocks $300,000 Paydirt Jackpot Bonus.
Meanwhile, the Wehrs Machine Five-Or-More Modified Challenge returns for a second-straight year. The program posts a $15,000 bonus for any driver in the Mesilla Valley Transportation / Border Tire Modifieds presented by Rancho Milagro, who can win five or more features during the six-race miniseries. With the bonus factored into the week, it offers the opportunity for a Modified racer to claim over $25,000 in winnings in 2024 if he or she can win all six races.
No driver was able to claim the bonus in 2023, but Dereck Ramirez did snare three wins en route to the Modified miniseries title.
Last but definitely not least, the Arizona Differential Four-Or-More Challenge returns for a third-straight year to the Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.
Any ShockerHitch.com X-Mod presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson competitor, who can win four-or-more features during the six-race extravaganza on January 6-14, will receive a $2,500 bonus courtesy of Arizona Differential LLC by Nate.
After flirting with the bonus in 2022, Jackson sealed the deal in 2023. He won the first two miniseries features before snaring the final two features to become the first driver to win the Arizona Differential Four-Or-More Challenge Bonus.
