STRATFORD, ONTARIO --
"We won rounds when we needed to," explained Wicke, driver of the 604-cubic inch with B1 Heads - 2 stage NOS system-powered Stratus. "This was a new car for us, and we spent a lot of late nights with it."
Wicke did not outright win any of the six Quick 32 Sportsman Series races this season, but always made the elimination rounds, and was the runner-up in the Top Sportsman class for the September 19 event at the Cayuga Dragway at TMP, the team's best showing.
The Quick 32 Sportsman Series is comprised on Top Dragster, and Top Sportsman, cars. The two classes of cars race within their class, and then the winner of each class is paired for the event final, with that winner declared the event champion.
"We got the car to come around the last few races," he said. "We had some mechanical woes, and we broke some little stuff which gave us lots of grief. But we figured out the tune-up."
"I really want to thank my crew," mentioned Wicke. "I had tremendous dedication from the team. And I couldn't have done any of this without Zim (Zimmer).
"I also want to thank Larry at Bear's (Performance)," he went on. "He was a big help in many aspects and a big thanks to him."
Wicke also had good things to say about the new series.
"I loved the deal," he said. "It was impressive. My crew and I really enjoyed it."
