Six of the seven past ASA Midwest Tour champions are planning to compete at Oktoberfest. They include…
Andrew Morrissey surprised many last year when he came with a new car and won the Oktoberfest 200. He is planning on coming back driving the same Nate Kelly prepared car he took to victory lane in 2022.
Dan Fredrickson will be looking for another Oktoberfest championship along with another Dick Trickle “99” victory. But he will be busy as he will also be helping his 14-year-old son Ty with his fest debut.
Jonathan Eilen made a strong charge to front in the Gandrud Auto Group 250 in August at Wisconsin International Raceway. He appeared to be a strong contender to eventual winner Ty Majeski until he fell out with a mechanical issue. He is looking to redeem himself at Fest.
Dalton Zehr is coming into Fest on a win streak of his own. He won the Cleaver Classic on Labor Day at Golden Sands Speedway and followed that up last weekend by winning the Bettenhausen 100 at Grundy County Speedway. He also picked up an ASA Midwest Tour victory back in May at Jefferson Speedway.
Ty Majeski is currently in a battle for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship and hoping to make the final four like he did last year. But, after his race on Saturday at Talladega, he will get a little break to return to Oktoberfest and work on taking more checkered flags, adding more to his incredible statistics at Fest. Majeski has won in all four of his Tour appearances this year and is currently leading the ASA STARS National Tour standings.
Steve Carlson is a weekly competitor in the La Crosse Kwik Trip Late Model division and will compete in four 20-lap feature events over the first two nights at Fest.
