Oktoberfest at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway is one of the biggest and most historic events in the Midwest. We wanted to take an in-depth look at that history in today’s By the Numbers.

 

2: Michael Bilderback clinched his third-straight Big 8 title last weekend at Rockford.  Now he’ll look to win two more times at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway.

 

300x250 Oktoberfest PPV 2017.10.084: Ty Majeski has already put the finishing touches on his fourth straight ARCA Midwest Tour championship.  Now Majeski can head into the weekend seeking only wins.

 

4:  Octoberfest is an amazing four-day event that showcases several series all across the midwest region.

 

4: Travis Sauter and Dan Fredrickson are the only two active four-time winners of the Oktoberfest 200.

 

5: Joe Shear is the all-time winner of the main event Oktoberfest 200.  His five wins came in 22 starts which saw him have 12 top-five runs and 16 in the top 10.

 

7: Dan Fredrickson has seven wins between the Dick Trickle 99 and the Octoberfest 200.  He’s the only driver to win the Dick Trickle more than once.

 

7: Skylar Holzhausen and Dan Fredrickson both have seven top 10’s in the Dick Trickle 99.

 

10: In only 12 starts Dan Fredrickson has 10 top-10 finishes in the 200-lap finale.

 

11: Friday night’s race will be the 11th of the Dick Trickle 99.

 

17: There will be 17 divisions racing this weekend at Oktoberfest.

 

26: 2017 Slinger Nationals champion Bubba Pollard will be heading to Oktoberfest to run the weekend’s events. Pollard plans to run both the Trickle 99 and the 200 on Sunday.

 

33: The Dick Trickle 99 race is broken up into three segments with the lowest point total between the three winning the outright race.

 

91: Ty Majeski drives the 91 ride and he has been one to watch over the years. He has wins in the 200, the Trickle 99, the Big 8 finale and the JMCK 63.  He is the only driver to win all four events.  Skylar Holzhausen has won three of the four, but not the 200 finale.

 

600: Over 600 laps of feature racing will take place over the four days.

 

$999.99: If a driver wins all three segments of the Dick Trickle 99 they get a $999.99 bonus.
