Three Top 5 Finishes Over Fourth of July Weekend

On Thursday night Ricky Weiss returned to Red River Co-op Speedway (Winnipeg, Manitoba) for the Canada Day Celebration special. In a field of 12 Super Late Models, Weiss jumped up three spots in his heat to place 2nd behind Mike Balcaen. Starting in 8th for the A-Main, Ricky streaked through the field six spots notching a runner-up finish behind Bill Mooney with Dustin Strand, Rick Fawcett, and Mike Balcaen completing the Top 5 finishers.

The following night Ricky visited River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, North Dakota) for a pair of Northern Late Model Racing Association sanctioned features. Cruising to an 8-lap heat race win from the pole position, Ricky earned the 4th-starting spot for the $1,100-to-win A-Main. Holding his position for all 20-laps, Weiss posted a 4th place finish behind Dustin Strand, Donny Schatz, and Bill Mooney with Mike Balcaen coming in 5th.

Later Friday night for the rescheduled NLRA feature from June 16th, Weiss rolled off 5th for a chance at the $1,100 payday. Working his way into a podium spot, Ricky gained two positions to place 3rd behind Dustin Strand and Donny Schatz with Brad Seng and Bill Mooney rounding out the Top 5.
