Haseleau wins Oktoberfest 100

Posted:

West Salem, WISCONSIN   Nathan Haseleu realized a dream today as he won his first Oktoberfest 100 in a dramatic finish.

Johnny Sauter was the class of the field all day after starting fifth and taking the lead Dan Fredrickson on lap 20.  The NASCAR Camping Truck Series competitor had a big lead on the field but was being chased down by his nephew Travis Sauter.
With two laps to go, Johnny was working his way past lap traffic, which allowed Travis to catch up to him. As Johnny went to the outside of a lapped car, Travis went to the inside hoping to get an opening. The two touched and Johnny spun in turn two. During the caution, Johnny caught up to Travis and spun him.
Haseleu inherited the lead and held off three-time Oktoberfest winner Dan Fredrickson to put his name on the prestigious list of winners.  Chris Wimmer was third.
