CLAIRE DECKER EDGES JASON WEINKAUF FOR FIRST FEATURE WIN, IN THE DICK TRICKLE 99 + 1 FEATURE EVENT AT MARSHFIELD MOTOR SPEEDWAY!
KYLE GENETT SWEEPS, ECKES CONTINUES WINNING WAYS, & SELIGER CLAIMS FEATURE WIN!
Marshfield, WI, (July 22, 2014) The 2nd Annual Dick Trickle Memorial 99+1 went down with dramatic fashion. Early in the 100-lap feature event, Steve Holzhausen, who just three days earlier claimed the second leg of the Yellow River Racing Series, broke as he entered turn one. On the restart, it once again was Jeff Weinfurter having a strong hold on the field of cars, as he continues to lead the feature event. Moving to the second position by lap 11, was that of Marshfield, WI driver Dean LaPointe. LaPointe, who had a top 5 finish in last Saturday’s Yellow River Racing Series 75-lap feature event, continued his success as he notched wins in both the Dash 4 Cash & fast heat. On lap 22, it was LaPointe putting his race car in the lead, with an outside pass of Weinfurter as they exited turn four. LaPointe would lead for seven laps, then it was Jason Weinkauf’s turn at leading this annual memorial race honoring one of America’s top drivers. On lap 33, Eagle River, WI driver Claire Decker moved pass Weinkauf to grab the lead. Decker, whom of which was looking for her first super late model feature win, looked to have a flawless car. Jason Weinkauf made numerous attempt at recapturing the race lead, but it was to no avail. Decker, who has been fast wherever she has competed, had nothing but clean air separating her and her first career win! As Decker enjoyed a comfortable lead, the best battle on the track was for third place between LaPointe and Weinfurter. Weinfurter kept battling the inside of LaPointe, and finally gained the position as it was apparent the LaPointe machine developed a major push the last 25 laps of the race event. However, up front, it was Claire Decker taking the checkered flag capturing her first career feature win. In victory lane, Decker stated, “this is simply amazing, I’m so happy and want to thank everyone for helping make this happen.” Crossing the finish line second and once again having a podium finish, was Merrill, WI driver Jason Weinkauf. With Jeff Weinfurter pocketing the third spot, it was Dean LaPointe and Natalie Decker rounding out the top five.
