JACKSON - Ricky Weiss was the winner on the first night of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series visit to Jackson Motorplex. The second win took him only eight races.

Series points leader Brandon Sheppard (New Berlin, Ill.) finished second. Weiss is second in points, now 54 points out of the top spot.
