LAS CRUCES, NM – Garrett Alberson and Roberts Motorsports have announced the Wild West Shootout Wild Ride program with the team’s Ken & Beth Roberts-owned No. 58 Nutrien Ag Solutions / Roemer Machine & Welding / Mesilla Valley Transportation / Black Diamond Chassis / Clements Racing Motor Super Sen model.

The campaign takes place during the 16th annual Wild West Shootout at New Mexico’s FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park on 8-16. January, where all proceeds will benefit Smile Train and Gilda’s Club of the Quad Cities.

Not only will the campaign raise money for two major charities, but it will also mark the return of Roberts Motorsports No. 58.

“No. 58 is where it all started back in the 1960s for Roberts Motorsports, with my dad (Hershel Roberts) driving No. 58 in racing events in Figure 8 and the Late Model,” Ken Roberts said. “My dad not only won a lot of races and championships in the team car, but since then several other drivers have had success in it, including Ray Guss Jr. and Jeremiah Hurst, who each won several races, track championships and national titles with the number.

“We are equally excited to both bring the number back to Garrett (Alberson) in 2022 and to announce our Wild West Shootout Wild Ride campaign. These are exciting times for our team and we look forward to helping a few deserving charities on the way. ”

Wild West Shootout Wild Ride gives 58 people the opportunity to either have their own name on the car and / or honor someone else by putting their name on the tire area to Roberts Motorsports No. 58, starting with the Wild West Shootout in January 8-16. The price is $ 100 per person and all proceeds are donated to Smile Train and Gildas Club of the Quad Cities.

Opportunities to be one of the 58 people included in the Wild West Shootout Wild Ride can be purchased at bbfmerch.com/products/take-a-wild-ride-donation. Deadline for submission is Wednesday, December 8th.

“I am honored to be a part of this great campaign and hope we can raise a lot of money for two great organizations. It’s especially cool that the names will stay on the car throughout the 2022 season until the tire area gets damaged, so in theory, those names can run with me all year, ”Alberson said. “I would also like to say a very special thank you to Ken and Beth Roberts for the amazing opportunity they continue to give me with Roberts Motorsports. It means a lot to me to continue the legacy from No. 58, and I look forward to serving the number proudly. ”
