Regarding Bickle’s win in 1986, the notes state that he battled Steve Holzhausen back and forth from lap 42 to the checkered flag and won it in a side-by-side battle. Tom Reffner was third, Dave Watson was fourth, and Ted Musgrave was fifth.

A big round of applause has to go out to Chuck Deery, Gregg McKarns and the entire staff at La Crosse for not giving up on the past two days and getting the racing events in for the 44th Annual event. The weather hasn’t been ideal but the crowds and the car counts have been great, along with the racing action. Hopefully today is a transition day where we go from wet to sunny skies.

Quick reminder, the track doesn’t use electronic timing/scoring so we will be unable to provide a rundown of practice times throughout the day.

The call has been made in the pits to have the Big 8 cars to the staging area for the first practice session.
