(Slinger, WI) June 24, 2014 – The Slinger Super Speedway’s 35th Annual SUPERSEAL Slinger Nationals presented by Miller Lite, on July 15, is set to pay $9999 to win and $999 to start in a tribute to the late Dick Trickle who carried the familiar number 99 on his race cars. Dick Trickle became a short-track legend, and was regarded as “America’s Winningest Racer”, with an estimated 1200 wins in his illustrious career. Trickle, who passed on in 2013, was a 4-time champion of the Slinger Nationals, an event that he suggested to then-promoter Wayne Erickson in 1980.
Drivers from across the country are already committed to the event. Topping the list is NASCAR and 6-time Slinger Nationals champion Matt Kenseth, a Wisconsin native. Steve Dorer, the Red Bud 300 Champion and Florida United Promoters Series Champion, will be visiting from Lakeland, Florida. Ross Kenseth will make the trip from Michigan in his first visit in his new Boyne Machine entry. Other Slinger Nationals champions expected are 2005 titlist Nathan Haseleu; 1999 winner Conrad Morgan and 5-time champion Lowell Bennett.
Former track champions Steve Apel, Dennis Prunty, Brad “JJ” Mueller, and Al Schill will be looking for their first Nationals title and a $9,999 pay day.
