Dereck Ramirez Enjoys Strong Runs in Arizona

2012 Wild West ShootoutWoodward, Oklahoma (01/26/12) – Dereck Ramirez opened his ultra-busy, 2012 campaign last week with the 6th Annual Wild West Shootout at USA Raceway (Tucson, Arizona) as he took both his #4r Ramirez Motorsports/Hughes Race Car/Pro Power Racing Engine Open Wheel Modified and his #4r Ramirez Motorsports/Victory Circle by Moyer/Pro Power Super Late Model into battle.

Over 60 Open Wheel Modifieds entered at least one event with many of the nation’s top competitors in action. Ramirez would make a strong showing in the Open Wheel Modified division with five top-ten-finishes and three top-five-finishes as he qualified for all six features with just one DNF. His best finish came in Round #2 of the series, when he finished second to Stormy Scott.

Over 80 Super Late Model pilots registered for action in at least one event, and again a talent-laden field was on hand each night as Ramirez made his first ever laps in a Super Late Model. Dereck went into the six race series with the attitude that he would use the events to become familiar with piloting a Super Late Model. Not only would he gain valuable track time as he took part in four of the events, but he would also impressively qualify for the feature event in Round #5.
