Fredrickson attacks 10 laps from surface, gets hold of Fourth Oktoberfest win

WEST SALEM– This kid and the words “history-making” appeared to find their method into the very same idea, the very same sentence, several times during the 46th running of the Oktoberfest Race Weekend. Sunday was no different. Ty Majeski, a 20-year-old rising star from Seymour, Wis., had already made history by ending up being the first driver to win both the Cock Trickle 99 and JMcK 63– two highly popular three-segment races– during the exact same Oktoberfest Race Weekend. There were numerous prominent obstacles, nevertheless, that stood in Majeski’s path prior to he could potentially win the most significant race of the four-day short-track racing extravaganza– the Okotoberfest 200. 2 of those challenges were cagey veteran Dan Fredrickson of Lakeville, Minn., and Truck Series regular Johnny Sauter, now of DeForest, Wis. This time, the kid would turn up just short. Majeski took the lead on Lap 91 and held it till 10 laps remained, however that’s when Fredrickson stole it from him on a wild reboot as a La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway crowd approximated at more than 4,000 viewed in shock. Fredrickson, a three-time Oktoberfest winner and never ever one to doubt himself, went on to win the ARCA Midwest Trip Oktoberfest Feature to provide him a remarkable 4 titles. He gathered $4,000 for winning the race, which he said was simply his fourth of the period. “I guess I am losing it in my aging,” stated the 37-year-old Fredrickson, getting into a wry smile. “We get right here and have a great deal of issues. We have to go through a heat race– very first time we’ve ever had to do that– to obtain into this (centerpiece). “We enter the race and Johnny (Sauter) was blowing by me sideways.

Vehicle made from hemp makes Denver stop

The automobile drew remarkably little interest in a city of legalized marijuana. No crowd surrounded it. Passersby didn’t pause to look it over. Most likely that’s because it looks much like a Mazda Miata convertible —– other than for the side panel poster of George Washington smoking a joint. Undoubtedly, the chassis of this distinct car prototype was drawned from a Miata. But the body is pure hemp, whose fibers have been woven, put in a mold, hardened with resin and covered with paint. Its marketers call the intense red result the greenest car on the planet. The body is a farming product. The engine can run on biobutanol, a fuel made from farming scraps that smells like a mix of trash, wood chips and alcohol. Designer Bruce Dietzen wishes to extend industrial hemp to the floorboards and other parts of the chassis and put his cannabis car on the marketplace next year at a beginning price of about $42,000. “One version gets you high. The other variation you can make an automobile out of. They’re both marijuana,” he said. For the record, “Nope, nope,” he does not smoke dope. Dietzen, who is 60, transferred to Secret West after a profession at Hewlett- Packard. He was motivated to create a hemp vehicle partially by Henry Ford, who he said constructed one in 1941. Dietzen drove the vehicle from Florida to Denver, where he intends to bring in enough cannabis vehicle financiers to offer a couple of. And in case people question its crashworthiness, Dietzen pounded hard on the hood a dozen times. No damages.
