Let's Go Racing » News » Darnell Takes "Trickle 99"

Oct. 5, 2013

An incredible 67 super late models showed up to toss their hat into the ring to become the champion of the prestigious “Dick Trickle 99” on the second day of the Oktoberfest Race Weekend.  The competition was so stout, there were plenty of heavy hitters who had to run last chance events in an effort to even claim a starting position in the event.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standout, Johnny Sauter and his family have always been quite close to the Wisconsin legend, Trickle.  Sauter wanted to etch his name on the history books for this special race, so he returned to the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway.  He got off to a blazing start, setting the fast time of 18.865.

Sauter appeared to be the car to beat, nabbing the win in the first of three segments, but he beat up his left front tire off in the second segment.  That put him in a hole that was difficult to dig out of, given the tremendous competition in the field.

Ty Majeski may have seemed like the car to beat, being that he picked up the victories in the final two segments, however, his first performance in the first segment was marred by a right rear tire going flat.

In the end, it was Erik Darnell, who was the picture of consistency, posting two second lace finishes and a seventh place to bring home the title in this year’s “Dick Trickle 99.”  The
full breakdown of the scores shows just how close the competition really was.

While the super late models were filled with plenty of excitement, it was the Great Northern Sportsmen that truly put on a tremendous show for the crowd. Local track favorites, Randy Humfeld and Rick Schermerhorn were shaking things up, as they attempted to take the lead away from Devin Schmidt.

Schmidt was not to be denied and he held both hard-chargers off to take the win.  Schermerhorn and Humfeld were second and third, respectively.  Kody Hubred and Jason Thoma rounded out the top five, with Thoma securing the inaugural championship for the series.

Andy Jones picked up the checkered flag in the Midwest Trucks and Dave Auringer nabbed the victory for the Midwestern Dash Series.
