Cade Dillard Bags $20,101 Victory at Vado Speedway Park
World of Outlaws World Finals Up Next
Robeline, Louisiana (10/28/19) – Mother Nature may have thwarted Cade Dillard’s original weekend plans, but it didn’t stop him from visiting Victory Lane. In fact, the pilot of the Nichols Stores No. 97 MB Customs/ Stoen Racing Engine Modified raced to the $20,101 victory in the 20th annual Rancho Milagro USRA Fall Nationals at New Mexico’s Vado Speedway Park.
“We originally planned to enter the Super Late Model portion of the Fall Classic at Whynot Motorsports Park, but rain forced them to pull the plug early in the week, so we shifted gears and got the Modified ready,” Dillard shared. “We had a great car all weekend at Vado Speedway Park. After the way we performed in our preliminary night on Friday, I knew that we had the car to beat on Sunday, and sure enough we got the job done.
“Sunday was the first anniversary for my wife Shelby and me. It was hard being away from her, but this $20,101 win definitely made it all worth it. I want to thank her, my whole family, my crew, and my sponsors for making this all possible.”
Taking his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc No. 97 USRA Modified entry into battle, Cade Dillard traveled to Vado Speedway Park (Vado, New Mexico) on Friday evening for the opening round of the 20th annual Rancho Milagro USRA Fall Nationals. With 60 cars registered for action, Dillard improved eight spots in his heat race to place second behind Jimmy Mars. Earning the pole position for the 25-lap preliminary feature, Cade held off a charging Terry Phillips in the final ten laps to pick up his seventh win of the season. Phillips, Jimmy Mars, Dereck Ramirez, and Jason Hughes completed the Top-5 finishres.
With his spot already locked into Sunday night’s finale, Cade was able to sit out Saturday night’s program to prepare for the finale.
Starting on the pole on Sunday evening, Dillard outran sixth-starting Rodney Sanders to capture his eighth win of the season and a $20,101 payday. Sanders, Bobby Pierce, R.C. Whitwell, and Dereck Ramirez rounded out the Top-5 finishers in the 50-lap affair.

Dillard will not be racing this coming weekend as he has a wedding to attend. His next event will come on November 7-9 with the annual World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series. Qualifying for both shows will be contested on Thursday night, while Friday and Saturday night will each see a $12,000-to-win program held.
The events mark the final races of 2019 for the WoO contingent. Cade is currently seventh in the latest WoO standings and is second in the Rookie of the Year battle.

Rodney Sanders Finishes Second in Vado’s Fall Nationals
Clinches Third USMTS National Championship
Happy, Texas (10/28/19) – Rodney Sanders recorded a podium finish on Sunday evening in the finale of the 20th annual Rancho Milagro USRA Fall Nationals at Vado Speedway Park. The podium performance came behind the wheel of his Wichita Tank Racing No. 20 Kenny’s Tile/ ARMI Contractors/ MB Customs/ Hatfield Racing Engine Modified.
“It was a pretty solid weekend for us. We were just a little off from where we needed to be, but it’s hard to complain about a second-place finish in such a big event with so many good cars. Cade [Dillard] did a great job, so congrats to him on the win,” Sanders noted. “With this weekend’s USMTS events canceled, we are officially the 2019 Champion. When I first starting racing with these guys, I just wanted to be competitive. I never dreamed that I’d win one USMTS championship, much less three, so this is pretty cool. Thank you to everyone who helped make this great year and championship possible.”
Rodney Sanders made the trek to the brand-new Vado Speedway Park (Vado, New Mexico) over the weekend for the 20th annual Rancho Milagro USRA Fall Nationals.
Drawing 60 cars for the opening round of the three-day event, Sanders recorded a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Stormy Scott, which positioned him 12th on the starting grid for the preliminary feature. Locking the Top 5 into Sunday’s finale, Rodney logged an eighth-place outing.
Returning Friday night, Rodney passed six cars in his heat race to pick up the 8-lap victory. Starting the A-Main in the fifth position, Sanders advanced two spots to finish third behind R.C. Whitwell and Bobby Pierce with Jake O’Neil and Stormy Scott trailing them to the checkers.
Starting Sunday night’s $20,101-to-win A-Main in the sixth position, Sanders improved four spots to reel in a runner-up finish behind Cade Dillard with Bobby Pierce, R.C. Whitwell, and Dereck Ramirez trailing them to the checkers.

The upcoming weekend had the Texas native geared up for a trio of United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) events in Texas at Kennedale Speedway Park. However, Mother Nature has already forced the cancellation of the events. Rodney Sanders, who needed only to suit up this weekend to secure the points battle, is now officially crowned the 2019 USMTS national champion – his third overall and first since winning back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013.

Donny Schatz wins at Port Royal, closes championship gap to eight points
Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 25th & 26th
Event: Nittany Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 1st (1st)
2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd - 9704 points (8 points behind Brad Sweet)
BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 28, 2019) - For a third consecutive season, ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, is a Series winner at the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ in Port Royal, Pennsylvania. The victory, an $8,000 share, raised Schatz’ season win total to 11, now within eight points of the 2019 World of Outlaws championship, which comes to a close with World Finals action at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Thursday through Saturday, November 7-9.
Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, was practically invincible during his Friday night visit to the Juniata County Fairgrounds with his only ‘defeat’ occurring during qualifying time trials; timing fifth overall in the first of two qualifying groups.
Before conquering all 30 laps during feature competition, Schatz earned victories during his respective heat race and dash.
Unfortunately, Schatz was unable to work for a Nittany Showdown sweep, as Mother Nature stepped in and forced Saturday’s World of Outlaws program to be cancelled.
“We just got to focus on what we do,” a modest Schatz said in Victory Lane at Port Royal Speedway. “There isn’t anything I can do to affect what he does. We never won a championship worrying about who we’re racing against or what they were doing. Obviously, what these (Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing) guys are doing is working. They made all the right changes to the car.”
Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing will conclude their quest toward Schatz’ 11th World of Outlaws championship on Thursday through Saturday, November 7-9, at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, North Carolina. The annual World Finals will cap the 2019 Series schedule headlined with a pair of $12,000-to-win programs.
With only eight markers separating Donny Schatz from championship leader, Brad Sweet, the Fargo, North Dakota-native will not only need to finish ahead of Sweet during each of the World Finals programs, but he will certainly need to distance himself from the Kasey Kahne Racing entry in the final feature rundowns.
World Finals action will commence with two rounds of qualifying on Thursday, November 7, followed by back-to-back World of Outlaws programs on Friday and Saturday, November 8 & 9.
Fans are encouraged to follow the progress of Donny Schatz, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and the No. 15 Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/J&J Auto Racing motorsports team on the Web and on social media.
