Wild West Shootout in Queen Creek, AZ


This past weekend O’Reilly Motorsports traveled 40 miles outside of Downtown Phoenix, AZ to the San Tan Valley for the 11th annual Wild West Shootout at Arizona Speedway. Five days of dirt track racing took place with big cash prizes up for grabs. Racing started Saturday, January 7 with 54 Late Models entered, 65 Modifieds, and 55 X-Mods. It continued the following weekend with a rain shortened weekend; but, that didn’t stop the dedicated fans from traveling out to enjoy a fierce battle for the championship.


Bobby Pierce dominating the Late Model division with three out of four victories, only being upstaged Wednesday night by Billy Moyer. Ricky Thornton Jr.  in the Modified division also grabbed three of four victories; but, was presented the crown on Sunday, January 15. Travis Schulte in the X-Mod division stole the championship victory from Rusty Kollman by one point.


Thank you to all of our customers who joined us for five days of racing and braved the rain this past weekend.


We look forward to seeing you at our next O’Reilly Auto Parts sponsored event!
