Weiss Lands 9th Place Finish in Illini 100 Opener at FCR

On Friday night the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series returned to action at Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Illinois) for the 12th annual Illini 100 presented by Douglas Dodge. In a field of 36 cars, Ricky Weiss secured his spot into the opening night feature with the 4th and final transfer spot in his heat. Starting in 13th, Ricky passed four cars in the 25-lapper to place 9th.

Returning on Saturday, Ricky laid down the third fastest time in his qualifying group before streaking to a 10-lap heat race victory. Earning the pole position for the $15,000-to-win finale, Weiss battled for a podium finish the majority of the race until he brought on a caution on lap-64 that dropped him back to a 14th place outing. (Josh James Artwork)
