Mechanical Issues Hault Decker’s Quest for Detjens Memorial Win

Natalie Decker set fast time Saturday night at State Park Speedway for the Newsline Nine Detjens Memorial 125.  The Eagle River, WI driver felt good about her car and her chances to win her first Detjens Memorial heading into the 125-lap feature.

However, just a few laps in, the No. 04 came to a stop on the front stretch and had to be pushed into the pits.  A distributor issues ended Decker’s night early.

The Decker Racing team believes they have the problem fixed and they are looking to get back on track Tuesday night with the ARCA Midwest Tour. Billed as one of the biggest races of the year, the Dixieland 250 will bring out some of the top drivers in the Midwest and will also be the longest race the ninteen-year-old driver will compete in this year.
