Weiss Lands Runner-up Finish in Dirt Million Prelim; 4th in Saturday’s Finale

On Friday evening Ricky Weiss followed the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) to Mansfield Motor Speedway (Mansfield, Ohio) for the inaugural Dirt Million. With a stout field of 77 Super Late Models on hand for two rounds of preliminary features, Weiss jumped up one spot in his heat to place 2nd behind Jonathan Davenport. Earning the 5th-starting position for the $10,000-to-win opening night A-Main, Ricky passed three cars in the 30-lapper reeling in a 2nd place finish behind Davenport with Don O’Neal, Devin Moran, and Shannon Babb completing the Top-5 finishers. (Heath Lawson photo)

Overtaking Don O’Neal for the lead on the lap-10, Ricky held the top spot for the next five circuits until Shannon Babb took control for the ensuing 60 laps. Hanging on to a Top-5 finish in the 100-lap affair, Ricky Weiss notched a 4th place spot behind Earl Pearson Jr., Bobby Pierce, and Gregg Satterlee with Scott Bloomquist coming in 5th.
