DRYDENE PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS PARTNERS WITH RICKY WEISS RACING
Jonestown, Pennsylvania (December 5, 2019): Drydene Performance Products, headquartered in Jonestown, Pennsylvania, announced an agreement with Dirt Late Model driver Ricky Weiss to serve as the primary sponsor and exclusive oil partner for Weiss as he competes in the World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
“Ricky Weiss is an exciting, up and coming driver,” said Dave Klinger, President of Drydene Performance Products. “We’re thrilled to partner with a competitor like Ricky who’s not just a rising star, but who has a proven record of the hard work, determination, and top performances. He’s a tremendous addition to Team Drydene.”
Weiss, also known as the “Manitoba Missile”, hails from Headingley, Manitoba, Canada and just concluded his first full WoO tour by earning the 2019 Rookie of the Year. Weiss turned heads during his rookie season, with 13 podium finishes, 17 top-fives, 30 top-10s and an average finish of 7.6. He placed third in points for the 2019 season, the highest finish by a rookie in WoO Series history. Although Weiss competed as WoO rookie this past season, he’s more than proven on the dirt track, with 13 years behind the wheel and 100+ career wins.
“I’m really excited to be a part of Team Drydene,” said Weiss. “I’ve been impressed by Drydene’s commitment to dirt track racing, and to be a part of a lineup that includes teams like Shark Racing made this an easy decision. I’m looking forward to carrying the Drydene colors to victory in 2020.”
Drydene and Weiss also provided a sneak peek at the new No. 7 Team Drydene late model car that Weiss will drive during the 2020 season. The car will also be on display at the PRI Trade Show in Indianapolis, Indiana from December 12-14.
