Ricky Weiss competed in the inaugural CanAm Late Model Challenge on Thursday night at Red River Co-op Speedway (Winnipeg, Canada). Weiss finished second behind Steve Anderson in WISSOTA Late Model Heat #1, earning him the eighth starting position for the finale.
In the feature, Weiss progressively worked his way forward, finding himself in the top five with ten laps remaining. Following a caution the field got set for a single file restart, with Cole Schill leading the pack. Schill held the top spot for one lap until Weiss blasted by on the high-side exiting turn two. Kevin Sexton followed Weiss around the top side to move into second. As the laps wore down, Sexton stayed close but it wasn’t enough to bid for the lead. Weiss took the checkered flag ahead of Sexton, Brad Seng, Cole Schill, and Steve Anderson.
