Marlar, Scott & Bintz atop Wild West Shootout Point Charts after Two Rounds

Lonnie Wheatley, SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (January 9, 2018) – With the initial two of six rounds of the 12th Annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway in the books, the trio of Mike Marlar, Johnny Scott and Scott Bintz are out to the early lead in the point chases.

Going into Wednesday night’s third round of competition atop the 1/3-mile clay oval near Phoenix, Marlar leads the way in the Super Late Model ranks, Scott is atop the Modified points and Bintz is setting the pace in the X-Mods.

While Canadian Ricky Weiss and Minnesota’s Don Shaw have split victory honors in the opening two rounds of Black Diamond/Club 29 Super Late Models presented by M&W Transportation action, Marlar has posted a pair of third-place finishes to sit atop the point charts.

Marlar holds a 15-point advantage over Shaw going into Round Three with Brandon Sheppard, defending Wild West Shootout champ Bobby Pierce and Chris Simpson also among the current top five.

While nobody will capture the $250,000 Keyser Manufacturing bonus for winning all six events, Weiss and Shaw both have a shot at a $100,000 bonus if either can run the table in the remaining four events.

With a Sunday night win after a sixth-place finish in the Saturday opener, Las Cruces’ Johnny Scott holds a 20-point edge in the MVT/Border International USRA Modified presented by Arizona Differential ranks over Shane Sabraski with Justin Kay, Josh Angst and opening round winner Ricky Thornton, Jr., among the top five.

Already with a pair of podium finishes including a Saturday night win, Scott Bintz leads the way in the RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson by just five points over Sunday night winner Cole Searing with Dewayne Tesch, Jaime Torres and Steve Muilenberg also among the top five.

The Wild West Shootout continues at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway on Wednesday night with racing action set to go green at 7:00 p.m. with the final three rounds set for Friday through Sunday, January 12-14.

A $5,000 winner’s share is up for grabs for the Super Late Models through the opening five nights of competition before the stakes are upped to $13,000-to-win for the January 14 finale.
