QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. — Shaw Trucking and Premium Waste Services are stepping up to the plate to help fund $25,000 payout to the winner of the super late model finale during the  15th annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.

The $25,000 top prize is a $10,000 increase over the $15,000 winner’s check offered in 2020. The event posts a $1,000 reward just to take the green flag in the 50-lap feature, and the total payout for the Jan. 17 finale is now more than $65,000.

“Wow and thank you are the first words that came to mind, when I found out that Premier Waste Services wanted to infuse additional money into the Wild West Shootout finale. Don Shaw at Shaw Trucking continues to go the extra mile every year to help us grow the event, and now with the added support from Larry and Jeni Henk at Premier Waste Services, we are able to take the event to a whole new level,” event promoter Chris Kearns shared. “With the added money, we were able to not only add $10,000 to the winner’s check, but we have also sprinkled $10,000 throughout the purse to further bolster what was already a solid finale.”

“Again, I just can’t say enough about the amazing support we receive from our incredible sponsors. Every time I think they can’t possibly increase their support, they do. For that, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I hope that all of the racers will make a point to thank and support these awesome sponsors, whenever they possibly can.”
