Logan Roberson is Crowned the Fastrak World Champion
$20,000 Payday Earned for Efforts at Virginia Motor Speedway

Waynesboro, Virginia (10/09/18) –
Logan Roberson piloted his Wynbridge Inc. #17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model to a career win on Saturday night at Virginia Motor Speedway.

The 21-year-old racer conquered the finale for the Fastrak World Championship and received a $20,000 payday for his efforts. The victory also marked his first-career Fastrak Touring Series triumph.

“I don’t know what to say. Me and my dad work our butts off in the shop at night to come here to do this,” said Roberson. “To get my first Fastrak win against all these good guys … man, I don’t know. I am crying like a baby. I am just so excited. We are just a small-funded team, but we got it done tonight.”

Friday night found Logan Roberson competing at Virginia Motor Speedway (Jamaica, Virginia) in the opening round of the two-day FASTRAK World Championship.

Drawing 40 FASTRAK Racing Series entries, Roberson locked his spot into the opening night feature with a heat race victory. With $5,000 on the line, Logan dropped one spot in the 40-lapper to finish fourth behind Benji Hicks, Tyler Bare, and Brett Hamm with Matt Long rounding out the Top 5.

On Saturday evening, Logan followed up the third-fastest time in his qualifying group with a heat race win. Earning the outside-front-row position for the main event, Roberson overtook Jensen Ford for the lead on the fourth circuit and held off challenges for the top spot over the next 40 laps.

After losing the lead to Michael Brown on lap-51, Logan quickly regained the top spot on the next lap and held off Brown for the remaining eight circuits to capture his 13th win of the season. Topping Brown, Tyler Bare, Ross Bailes, and Matt Long at the line, Logan Roberson pocketed a $20,000 payday.

“I had to get up on the wheel late in the race after (Michael) Brown got the lead,” Roberson commented. “It’s going to take a while for this win to sink in. We’ve finished second on eight occasions with the Fastrak Series, so again to get our first win in this fashion means a lot. I want to thank each and every person who supports our program.”

Ricky Weiss Ends 2018 Season on a High Note with 25th Victory
Claims Fifth-Career WISSOTA National Late Model Championship

Headingley, Manitoba, Canada (10/09/18) – After a stellar 2018 campaign it only seemed fitting that Ricky Weiss would win his final race of the season. The Canadian racer did just that by taking his Derrick’s Sandblasting #7w Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Vic Hill Race Engine Late Model to Victory Lane on Saturday evening during the finale for the Minnesota Truck Headquarters Fall Classic at Ogilvie Raceway.

The win was his 25th of the season, and was worth $2,000. Even more, he officially clinched the 2018 WISSOTA National Late Model Championship. This marks the fifth time that Weiss has achieved the feat.

“For the second-straight week, the weather changed our initial plans, but it didn’t slow us down,” Weiss said. “We headed to Ogilvie Raceway on Saturday, and even though we had a good car, we had to really work for the win after starting seventh. I’ve had 20 plus wins in a year before, but never with wins of this caliber. The icing on the cake was clinching our fifth WISSOTA National Championship.

“This has been a dream season, and I can’t want to see what the 2019 season will hold. We’re already focused on getting things ready, and hopefully we can add a few more marketing partners so that maybe we can make a run at a national tour. I want to say a special thank you to everybody who made this incredible year possible.”

On Saturday night Ricky Weiss was one of 25 Wissota entries signed in at Ogilvie (Ogilvie, Minnesota) for the Minnesota Truck Headquarters Fall Classic. Dropping one spot in his heat, Weiss scored a runner-up finish behind Travis Budisalovich, which positioned him seventh on the starting grid for the feature.

Outrunning fourth-starting Pat Doar, Ricky Weiss charged to his 25th win of the season, which came over Doar, Travis Budisalovich, Jesse Glenz, and John Kaanta. He pocketed a $2,000 payday for his 35-lap victory.

The 2018 season is now likely over for Weiss. He looks to open his 2019 season in early January during the 13th annual Wild West Shootout at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway. The miniseries will include six racing events held over the course of 10 days. For more information on the events, please visit .

Ricky Weiss would like to thank his marketing partners and sponsors including Derrick's Sandblasting. A.I.E.

Robinson, and Robbie Stuart at the line to pick up his first Super Late Model victory of the season and an $8,000 payday.
