October 6, 2018 - Weiss Soars to Fourth Straight Win; Tops Fall Classic at Ogilvie
After a stellar 2018 campaign it only seemed fitting that Ricky Weiss would win his final race of the season.

The win was his 25th of the season, and was worth $2,000. Even more, he officially clinched the 2018 WISSOTA National Late Model Championship. This marks the fifth time that Weiss has achieved the feat.

“For the second-straight week, the weather changed our initial plans, but it didn’t slow us down,” Weiss said. “We headed to Ogilvie Raceway on Saturday, and even though we had a good car, we had to really work for the win after starting seventh. I’ve had 20 plus wins in a year before, but never with wins of this caliber. The icing on the cake was clinching our fifth WISSOTA National Championship.

“This has been a dream season, and I can’t want to see what the 2019 season will hold. We’re already focused on getting things ready, and hopefully we can add a few more marketing partners so that maybe we can make a run at a national tour. I want to say a special thank you to everybody who made this incredible year possible.”

On Saturday night Ricky Weiss was one of 25 Wissota entries signed in at Ogilvie (Ogilvie, Minnesota) for the Minnesota Truck Headquarters Fall Classic. Dropping one spot in his heat, Weiss scored a runner-up finish behind Travis Budisalovich, which positioned him seventh on the starting grid for the feature.

Outrunning fourth-starting Pat Doar, Ricky Weiss charged to his 25th win of the season, which came over Doar, Travis Budisalovich, Jesse Glenz, and John Kaanta. He pocketed a $2,000 payday for his 35-lap victory.

aAfter being unable to compete in the 48th annual World 100 at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway because of technical issues, the team hightailed it to River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, North Dakota), where they entered the 12th annual John Seitz Memorial. The long trip paid dividends as Ricky Weiss won a prelim feature and then streaked to the $9,200 finale victory in his Derrick’s Sandblasting #7w Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Vic Hill Race Engine Late Model.

“Well, the weekend couldn’t have possibly started on a more disappointing note, but it ended up really well,” Weiss said after winning his first-career John Seitz Memorial. “We were really bummed that we were unable to compete in the World 100, but the rules are the rules, and now that we know we have an issue, we’ll make the necessary changes.

“Despite the letdown, our team didn’t give up and we came back and had an awesome weekend at River Cities Speedway. I’ve been wanting to win this race for a long time. It’s kind of funny how things work out sometimes.”

Weiss pocketed a $9,200 prize for his performance in the 92-lap affair.

Earlier on Saturday, Weiss outran a talented field of 44 Northern Late Model Racing Association (NLRA) entries at River Cities Speedway to claim the rescheduled Prelude to the Johnny. Leading flag-to-flag, Ricky Weiss topped Jeffrey Massingill, Jake Redetzke, Dustin Strand, and Shane Edginton at the line capturing a $1,292 payday.
