Everybody has worked so hard to get to this point, and I know we’ve still got a long way to go. This is all pretty humbling though. I can’t believe everything I’ve been blessed with over the years.”

January 5, 2020 - Cade Dillard Captures First Career World of Outlaws Victory
1It was an emotional milestone achievement for Cade Dillard on Sunday night at Vado Speedway Park in Vado, N.M.

The pilot of the S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model captured the 75-lap Battle at the Border finale for a $15,000 payday and his first-career World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series triumph.

“Man, I’m speechless,” Dillard said in Victory Lane while wiping tears from his eyes. “Just to be out here with these guys in general is a blessing to me. I’ve lost a lot of these just for not being patient enough in the race, and probably the first 40 or so I just rode and tried not to hit the cushion unless I had to. I knew we were good when we could just run through the center of the track there at the beginning and not have to get up there and rely on the cushion.”

1Dillard started the night off with a 10-lap heat race victory which would position him fourth on the starting grid for the main event. Slowly making his way to the front, Cade overtook Darrell Lanigan for second after a lap-48 restart and began setting his eyes on race-leader Brandon Sheppard. (Terry Page photo)

Sliding ahead of Sheppard on lap 66, Dillard built more than a one-second margin over second-place in the remaining nine circuits to capture the win. Sheppard, Lanigan, Scott Bloomquist, and Ricky Weiss trailed Dillard to the checkered flag.

“That’s definitely the hardest I ever ran,” Dillard said. “There were a couple times I messed my entry up and got into the wall there. I actually thought it was 70 laps, so when we got to lap 69 and we just kept going I was like, ‘Oh, man, I don’t know if I’ve got five left in me. My crew guy told me I had a lead and I just kept running ‘er until about two to go and then I just played it a little more conservative.”
