Slinger, Wis., July 15—During opening ceremonies for the 35th SuperSeal Slinger Nationals Tuesday night, Chris Wimmer’s crew placed the inaugural Nationals trophy won by his late uncle Larry Detjens during the 1980 event, on the trunk of his car presumably for good luck. Hours later, having that trophy on hand paid off as Wimmer held off a closing Matt Kenseth to capture his first SuperSeal Slinger Nationals crown at the Slinger Super Speedway.

35th Annual Event up Next for Defending Track Champion

(Slinger, WI) Steve Apel beat a talented field to the checkered flag in last year’s running of the SUPERSEAL Slinger Nationals presented by Miller Lite. He outraced one of his idols, posed for pictures in victory lane and held the prestigious Larry Detjens Memorial trophy. But he didn’t make it out of post-race technical inspection. A tapered carburetor spacer, an oversight by Apel and his team, cost the 25 year-old racer the biggest win of his career. Tuesday, July 15, at Slinger Super Speedway, Apel gets his chance at redemption.
