10 Questions with…Colin Saegert

What do you like about Slinger Super Speedway?
I grew up around racing with my dad and his buddies. But once I became friends with Zach Greer, he pushed me to get my own car and start racing for myself.

What do you like about Slinger Super Speedway?
What’s not to like about Slinger? Every second on the track is intense! For my rookie year, it is definitely an awesome track to start on! The best part is coming onto the track as you drop into the bowl. It’s just a cool feeling.

Who do you need to thank?
Sponsors: HM Product Solutions, Scoobys Sports Bar and Grill, GFL Environmental, Precision Plumbing and Heating, Westphal’s Printing, and Mueller Grain and Farm. I’d also like to thank my parents of course-Toni and Scott, my fiancé-Sam and her family, and Zach Greer

What is your real job?
I am a machinist and a programmer at Mercury Racing in Fond du Lac.

What do you do to make it affordable to race?
Some things that help are getting sponsors and keeping the car all in one piece most of the weeks. That usually helps out a lot!

What is your favorite memory at Slinger?
My favorite memory is my second feature I ran in a Slinger Bee. I led every lap and won the feature.

How did you get your car number (#28)?
I got my number from football. It has been my number since 6th grade.

What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy. And throw some peas on top of that. That’s a great meal!

What’s next for you in racing and/or life?
What’s next for racing for me is keep racing the Super Beez next year. Hopefully I can run a full season with getting married next year and buying a house.

Which Slinger driver (past or present) do you respect the most and why?
Jerry Eckhardt because all he does is have fun out there on the track and in the pits. Truly, that’s what everyone should do is just go have fun like him.
