Dereck Ramirez traveled to RPM Speedway (Crandall, Texas) on Thursday evening to take part in the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) season finale. Drawing 45 cars for the three-day Summit Southern Nationals, Ramirez passed four cars in his heat race to place second behind Jason Hughes. Starting the opening night feature in third, Dereck was an early retiree from the 35-lapper on lap 26.

On Friday evening, Dereck came in second in his heat behind Tyler Davis, which positioned him 10th on the starting grid for the A-Main. With $3,000 on the line, Ramirez advanced through the field eight spots to register a runner-up finish behind Brandon Sheppard with Tyler Davis, Jake Gallardo, and Chris Henigan rounding out the Top-5.

For the $5,100-to-win finale on Saturday, Ramirez jumped up five spots in his heat race to place finish. With a provisional already secured into the A-Main, Dereck scratched from his 15-lap consolation event. Rolling off 26th, Dereck passed 21 cars in the 50-lapper to finish fifth behind Brandon Sheppard, Tyler Davis, Terry Phillips, and Jake Gallardo.
