On Thursday afternoon at Cedar Lake Speedway (New Richmond, Wis.) as the 34th annual USA Nationals got underway with a $6,000-to-win preliminary feature, Weiss came in fourth in his heat before grabbing the second-and-final transfer spot in his B-Main. Shortly after preliminary events were finished, persistent rain postponed the feature to Friday.

Rolling off 22nd, Ricky jumped up two spots in the 30-lapper to finish 20th.

For a pair of heat races later Friday evening, Ricky followed up a ninth-place finish in his first heat with a fifth-place finish in his second round. Failing to place in the top 16 in passing points, Weiss transferred into the B-Main on Saturday for another shot at the $50,000-to-win USA Nationals.

Transferring the Top 3, Weiss grabbed a third-place finish, which positioned him 22nd on the starting grid for the finale. Improving 10 spots in the 100-lap affair, Ricky Weiss recorded a 13th-place finish.

Ricky is currently fifth in the latest World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series point standings. For more results from these events, please visit and
