The 45th Annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend is in the books at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway with Travis Sauter practicing patience to win the 2014 ARCA Midwest Tour Oktoberfest 200, his FOURTH Oktoberfest championship – he also won in 2009, 2011 and 2012.
One of my favorite divisions to watch and shoot during the Oktoberfest Race Weekend are the Vintage Cars. I am a nostalgic person at heart and I miss the days when I was a kid watching my heros race on the weekend, so it’s natural my eye and camera pay special attention to this group; they only have one event during the 4 day race weekend. The Upper Midwest Vintage Racing Series is the Facebook addition to the IMCA Old Timers web site that was formed to promote and preserve the history and records of I.M.C.A. (International Motor Contest Association) history that includes the restoration of former IMCA race cars. They also recognize former driver, owners, mechanics and others involved in the rich history of the sanctioning body. I hope to catch them in one of their 2015 events at one of the other tracks they run.
