With a $3,000 winner's check on the line on Friday night a stacked field of 81 entries registered for battle, and Ramirez began his night by winning the eighth heat race from the second starting spot to lock into the tenth starting spot for the 40 lap feature. Ramirez battled in the top ten throughout the event before crossing the finish line in the ninth position.

November 15th, 2012 - The team took to the track at Royal Purple Raceway (Baytown, Texas) on Thursday night `in the first round of a tripleheader with the Casey's USMTS tour. A stout field of seventy-nine competitors were on hand to chase the $2,000 payday in the first event of the 6th Annual USMTS Texas Winter Nationals. After drawing the fifth starting spot for his heat race Ramirez advanced to a fourth place finish, which left him short of accumulating enough points to lock into the feature. As a result he was relegated to a b-main, and would claim the third and final transfer spot to the feature. After starting twenty-sixth in the main event Dereck would see his night come to an uneventful end in the 22nd position. Full results from the event are available at
