Ricky Weiss, the newly-crowned five-time WISSOTA Late Models Champion from Headingley, Manitoba, has 28 starts with the Outlaws dating back to 2007. Even though he hails from north of the border, his best finish came in Tennessee on June 2, 2007, at Tazewell Speedway — a third-place run for the black-and-orange No. 7.
At some point in every good driver’s career is a “breakout race,” one that really defines their character and puts them on the map as a racer with potential. Weiss is certainly no Late Model amateur, but August 10, 2018 will forever live on his mantle as the biggest win of his career to date, as he took the 37th annual North-South 100 at Florence Speedway in convincing fashion over Tim McCreadie and Hudson O’Neal. With 24 other wins aboard his ride in 2018, he’s the most decorated of the 2019 Rookie of the Year contenders.
Weiss will sport a Sweet-Bloomquist chassis again in 2019 with Derrick’s Sandblasting, G-Style Transport, JC Properties and Turk Enterprises on the side of the car. Weiss plans to bounce around between Bloomquist’s shop in Mooresburg, TN and his own back in Manitoba, depending on time between races and their location. He said the help Bloomquist and his associates provide the team with the car is invaluable and will be a big factor to his own success on his first attempt at a national tour.
