1July 27th, 2013 - Dereck Ramirez was finally able to participate in his qualifying night for the 3rd Annual World Dirt Track Modified Championship at Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minnesota) on Friday afternoon as the program was delayed from Thursday evening by rain.

Ramirez started the night by qualifying 2nd fastest in his group, and with the top six cars inverted for heat race action he started in the 5th spot and would finish 4th. His heat race performance failed to transfer him to the feature, but a 4th place finish in his b-main positioned Ramirez starting 19th in the feature. He would go on to advance to a 12th place finish.

Dereck would use his mulligan to run Friday night's qualifying program as he locked to improve his position in the points. Unfortunately it would prove to not be the best of nights for the Oklahoma driver as he earned the 22nd starting spot for the feature via preliminary action but would only be able to manage an 18th place finish.

Dereck entered Saturday night 42nd in points of the 81 entries, who had participated in the event. As a result he had his work cut out for him as he faced the challenge of coming from deep in the C-main to the feature event. A 10th to 4th run in the C-Main transferred Ramirez to the 18th starting spot for the B-main. Unfortunately he would fail to advance to a transfer spot to the feature in the B-main as his weekend came to an early end.

`July 20th, 2013 - After a much-needed, two week break Dereck was back in action on Tuesday night at Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kansas) in a $5,000-to-win, USMTS race. With 46 entries in the pit area he only managed to advance a single spot to a 5th place finish in his heat race, which left him running a b-main. A 6th place finish in the b-main resulted in Ramirez starting 24th on the grid for the 40 lap finale. During the course of the event at the 1/2 mile oval Dereck advanced fourteen spots on his way to a 10th place finish. For his efforts in the feature he earned the Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award.

The racing slate found the team pitted at Hamilton County Speedway (Webster City, Iowa) on Wednesday night for a $5,000-to-win, USMTS program. Twenty-nine competitors took to the big oval, and Dereck started his night by winning his heat race from the 3rd starting spot to earn a spot in the redraw for the feature, where he was the recipient of the 8th starting spot for the 40 lap feature. During the race he passed five cars to cross the finish line in the 3rd position behind race winner, Johnny Scott, and Rodney Sanders.

On Friday evening the opening round of the 3rd Annual Silver Dollar Nationals was held at I-80 Speedway (Greenwood, Nebraska) as a $4,000 winner's check was posted. A strong field of 36 entries converged on the 1/2 mile oval, and struggles in preliminary action forced Dereck to utilize a provisional to start the main event in the 24th position. He would go on to advance to nine spots to record a 15th place finish.

Dereck hoped for better luck on Saturday night as the winner's purse was increased to $5,000 in the final round of the Silver Dollar Nationals. With 39 entries on hand Ramirez earned the 17th starting spot for the feature after finishing 3rd in his b-main. In the main event handling issues forced him to retire on lap 25 to a 17th place finish.
