Lowell Bennett is a five-time winner (1997, 2000, 2004, 2007, 2010). If he wins tomorrow, he will tie Matt Kenseth with the all-time Slinger Nationals win.

Comment From Matt

As of about 2 days ago there were about 43-45 cars entered, but after last nights 4th of July race about 34 cars dropped. Expecting mid 40 to high 50 car count!

2:35
Some of the teams here today don’t run Slinger on a regular basis.
2:34
Looking at the schedule tomorrow, the Super Lates will have 2.5 hours of practice.
2:33
Heard some day that 35 cars are registered, waiting to get an update from Todd Thelan.
2:32
Comment From Aaron

Lots of practice time tomorrow, so I wonder how many teams will just show up at 9am and make it a one day event. Most of the locals will not need a lot of testing time. Any word on how many cars they are expecting?

2:31
Bickle said that tomorrow night will be his last Slinger Nationals and would like to get one more title on his résumé.
2:29
Just had a nice long conversation with Rich Bickle Jr. For those who may not have heard, Bickle announced last year when he won the National Short Track Championship at Rockford Speedway, that 2013 will be his final year of racing.
2:28
Steve Dorer is back out for another test.
2:27
Looks like about nine cars. Some are thinking that more teams will show up between now and 6pm.
