ST. HELENA, California (January 25, 2021) – Rico Abreu’s first weekend aboard the Works Limited No. 57 ended in success, not only scoring three consecutive top-ten finishes during the inaugural Wild Wing Shootout at Arizona Speedway in San Tan Valley, Arizona, but Abreu improved his finishing position each time out, eventually capping the three-race spectacle, battling head-to-head with some of the best 410 racers in the country, with a fourth-place run on Sunday, January 24.
With Paul Silva on the wrenches, Rico Abreu, driver of the Works Limited, Lucas Oil, Curb Records, No. 57 sprint car, kicked-off Wild Wing Shootout action with a sixth-place result on Friday, a jump of four sports after starting tenth on the feature grid. The following evening, Abreu bettered his result and advanced from row four to finish fifth, ending the 30-lap program between Gio and Dominic Scelzi, respectively.
The St. Helena, California-native was forced to start seventh once again on Sunday, but the six-time main event winner in 2020 was not deterred, eventually climbing three spots to finish fourth during the 35-lap, $10,041-to-win Wild Wing Shootout finale.
Tony Stewart was the finale winner, followed by Dominic Scelzi, DJ Netto, and Abreu.
“It was a great weekend for this Works Limited 57. To come right out of the box and show speed all three nights says a lot about our potential together. We still have some things to work on, but I’m confident we have what it takes to be competitive every night we roll out of the trailer,” Rico Abreu said, who scored a pair of top-fives at Arizona Speedway during the annual Copper Classic in November. “I’m excited to see what the future brings for this team.”
