Fredrickson Wins the Fourth Dick Trickle “99” on Second Night of Oktoberfest racingBy: Ashley Iwanski and Kevin Ramsell
(West Salem, WI – October 8, 2010)
Dan Fredrickson was crowned the fourth different winner of the Dick Trickle “99” on the second night of the 41st Annual Oktoberfest Weekend.
Nick Murgic had originally won the race, but was disqualified from the third segment after post race inspection. After Murgic’s disqualification, Dan Fredrickson was declared the winner.
Murgic sat on the pole for the first segment as the field was lined up based on their qualifying times. Murgic showed that he was the fastest as he would easily lead every lap and win the first segment. Skylar Holzhausen was second with Dan Fredrickson a close third. Jacob Goede finished fourth with Blake Brown rounding out the top-five. 22 cars finished on the lead lap and that created a 22-car invert for the second segment.
The second segment got off to a wild start when it appeared that Chris Weinkauf spun going across the start line. Jacob Goede had no where to go but up and over Weinkauf’s car. Goede then made contact with the inside wall. Both drivers were alright. On the re-start, it was Brian Johnson Jr. getting the early lead but Tim Schendel worked his way to the front from his fourth starting position to take the lead on lap 4. Schendel pulled away to win the second segment with Dean Cornelius in second and Frank Kreyer in third. Johnson finished fourth while Ross Kenseth held off Dan Fredrickson for fifth. Murgic finished tenth.
Holzhausen and Murgic started on the outside of the front two rows for the final segment. The outside line took off as the green flag flew. Holzhausen would led until the caution flew on lap three when Matt Kocourek and Nathan Haseleu got together on the frontstretch causing Kocourek to spin and make contact with the inside wall. He drove away and Haseleu went to the rear. On the double file re-start, Murgic got a run on the outside coming out of turn two and pulled away from Holzhausen. Murgic went on to win his second segment.
Murgic was credited a tenth place finish due to the three segment format.
Rick Schermerhorn won the Area Sportsmen feature on the second night of Oktoberfest racing a La Crosse Speedway after winning the La Crosse Sportsmen championship on Thursday.
Schermerhorn started towards the back and had to work his way to the front around drivers Nick Clements and Rob Mason. Clements and Mason were leading the race at the halfway point, but Schermerhorn quickly gained possession of the first place spot. Meanwhile Brent Kane was also making his way to the front of the field.
A caution came out with only 10 laps to go when Greg Scheck slid halfway down the backstretch on the roof of his car. Scheck was able to walk away from the wreckage, but the race was red-flagged for clean up.
On the restart, Schermerhorn and Kane made up the front row. Schermerhorn jumped into the lead, but the two made contact as Kane was trying to take the first position. Schermerhorn was able to put a small cushion between himself and Kane to cross the finish line first. Kane, Clements, Mason and Daniel Linnehan followed.
Matt Pyburn crossed the finish line one car length ahead of Dan Gilster to win the Super Sportsmen feature. Pyburn took an early lead in the race, but behind him drivers were fighting to get into the top five. Jason Dummer, Jimmy Gilster and Scott Luck were running third through fifth, swapping positions back and forth as Dan Gilster was working his way through the field from the back of the pack.
Dan Gilster quickly moved into the top five and in no time at all was in the second position. Pyburn had pulled into a five car length lead, but Dan Gilster was closing the gap one car length a lap. For Pyburn, the checkered flag waved just in time. Dan Gilster finished second followed by Rick Grunden, Ryan Hinner and Jimmy Gilster.
The Big 8, ASA North Series and Mid-Americans will also be racing for championships on Saturday, October 9. There will also be ASA Midwest Tour prelims Saturday. On Sunday, October 10 there will be a brand new race, the JMCK 63 in honor of the late John McKarns. Also on Sunday, the ASA Midwest Tour and ASA Truck champions will be determined. It will be two days of racing action you won’t want to miss. Saturday, October 16 is Bracket Nationals Street Drags.
