After Thursday night’s program at Red River Co-Op Speedway was washed away by Mother Nature, the team set out to enter a pair of Northern Late Model Racing Association (NLRA) events.
Action got underway on Friday evening at River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, North Dakota), as twenty-three Super Late Models converged on the oval. A fifth place finish in his heat race would earn Ricky the thirteenth starting spot for the finale. Despite starting mid-pack for the feature, Weiss charged to the front and would cross the finish line in second behind race winner, Mike Balcaen.
On Saturday night, Hibbing Raceway (Hibbing, Minnesota) hosted the second round of the NLRA weekend. A strong field of thirty-five entries registered for battle with Weiss finishing runner-up in his heat race. As a result he start tenth on the feature grid, and when the race went green Ricky advanced to a fifth place finish behind race winner, Brad Seng, Pat Doar, Bobby Carlson, and Zachery Wohlers at the checkered flag.
