April 27th, 2012 - Friday night found the team at Mississippi Thunder Speedway (Fountain City, Wisconsin) in another $4,000-to-win, Casey's USMTS National event. `Fifty-two Open Wheel Modifieds entered the event, and for the second straight night the team would have an uphill battle. A large pill number left Ramirez starting ninth in his heat, and after passing two cars to record a seventh place finish, he was forced to start eighth in a b-main. With the top four cars transferring to the feature he would finish fifth, which left him one spot short of a transfer to the feature. As a result, he utilized a provisional to start the main event in the 27th position. During the 40 lap event he passed eleven cars to record a 16th place finish.

Saturday night's event, which was scheduled for Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minnesota) fell victim to Mother Nature. Dereck is now tenth in the latest USMTS National Championship standings. Full results and the latest tour standings are available at www.USMTS.com.

`April 26th, 2012 - The Casey's USMTS National Championship Series resumed on Thursday night with a $4,000-to-win event at Rice Lake Speedway (Rice Lake, Wisconsin) as 56 cars filled the pits. It would prove to not be the best of nights for Dereck and the team. A ninth to fifth run in his heat race left him just short of locking into the feature, and earned him the second starting spot for one of the triple b-mains. He would finish third in the b-main to earn the 23rd starting spot on the grid for the feature. During the course of the finale he would only manage to advance five sots on his way to an 18th place finish. Full results are available at www.USMTS.com.

April 22nd, 2012 - The team concluded the four race weekend on Sunday night at Monett Speedway ` (Monett, Missouri) in another $2,000-to-win, Casey's USMTS event. Twenty-nine entries registered for action, and in heat race action he passed one car to claim a second place finish, which locked him into the ninth starting spot on the grid for the 35 lap feature. During the course of the feature Dereck advanced three spots to finish sixth behind race winner, Terry Phillips, Jason Hughes, Ryan Gustin, Rodney Sanders, and Johnny Scott. Dereck is currently seventh in the latest Casey's Cup USMTS standings. Full results are available at www.USMTS.com.

`April 21st, 2012 - Saturday night found the team at Salina High Banks Speedway (Salina, Oklahoma) for a $2,000-to-win, 30 lap event with the Casey's USMTS tour. The night started on a positive note for Ramirez as he powered from his sixth starting position to a second place finish in heat race action to lock into the redraw for the feature. He would be the recipient of the eighth starting spot for the finale, and early in the event he would battle throughout the top ten. However, as the feature progressed the team began to battle mechanical issues, and Ramirez would ultimately retire to a 20th place finish with just two laps remaining in the feature.

April 20th, 2012 - On the heels of his best tour finish of the year on Thursday night, Dereck entered another Casey's USMTS event on Friday night at Valley Speedway `(Grain Valley, Missouri). Thirty-four competitors registered for battle, and in heat race action passing would be difficult as Ramirez failed to gain any positions with a fifth place finish, which relegated him to a b-main. A fourth to second run in his b-main locked him to the sixteenth starting spot for the 40 lap, $2,000-to-win feature. During the course of the feature he would advance ten spots on his way to a sixth place finish. Full results are available at www.USMTS.com.

`April 19th, 2012 - After a few weeks away from the track the team was eager to return to action, and they did just that on Thursday night with a $2,000-to-win, Casey's General USMTS event at LA Raceway (La Monte, Missouri). Thirty-six Open Wheel Modifieds were on hand for the program, and Dereck began his night by charging from the fourth starting spot to a second place finish in his heat race to lock into the redraw for the feature. In the redraw he was the recipient of the second starting spot with Ryan Gustin joining him on the front row. Ramirez would battle for the lead early in the event before ultimately crossing the finish line in the third position behind race winner, Stormy Scott, and Ryan Gustin.
