Slinger, Wis., June 2—Steve Apel took the lead on lap 18 of the 60-lap Pepsi Challenge Series Round One super late model feature Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway and turned back a late charge from James Swan to score his first main event victory of the season.

“I just didn’t want to hit the wall coming off turn four, that was the biggest thing, “Apel said from victory lane describing the battle with Swan over the final laps, “I knew I had a car that could win and it was just a matter of hitting my marks and not making mistakes.”


Slinger, Wisconsin (May 26, 2013)—After years of trying, Rob Braun scored his first career super late model feature win Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway capturing the E.H. Wolf Memorial Day Fireworks 75. Defending track champion Dennis Prunty took the runner-up spot over Casey Johnson.

The win, however, did not come without controversy.

(Slinger, WI) May 17, 2013 – With heavy hearts the staff at Slinger Speedway would like to pass on our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Dick Trickle. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. There are many Dick Trickle stories to be told and bench races to be run but those are for another day... today we are comforted knowing Dick is resting peacefully. Gods speed Dick!

In the coming days we will be making arrangements to honor Dick at this year’s Slinger Nationals, an event he suggested Wayne Erickson create back in 1980. The Slinger Nationals turned into a mid week classic that allowed barnstorming racers an opportunity to compete without missing their weekly tracks events. Dick Trickle will be missed by many, but Slinger Speedway will always remember him.
