Decker Overcomes Mechanical Issues for 13th Place Finish
Natalie Decker battled through the tough qualifying rounds and used the last chance race to qualify for the Dixieland 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway last Tuesday. Despite some mechanical problems, the Eagle River, Wisconsin driver raced her way into the 250-lap event and earned a 13th-place finish in her longest race of the year.
“During qualifying we had ignition issues, but thanks to Wegner Engines for coming over to our pit to fix the problem,” said Decker. “We have been having issues with our left front ball joint coming loose, which affected the car’s handling but we kept digging. Over all, I am very happy to have had the car make it through all 250 laps, my longest race yet.”
