CONCORD, N.C.– Super Late Model racing has been kind to Natalie Decker in 2015. After a successful year so far, which includes a handful of wins in the Midwest, the 18-year-old Wisconsin native travels to New Smyrna Speedway (FL) this weekend to make her first ever Florida Governors Cup 200 start.
“When our team was racing Oktoberfest in La Crosse, we were talking about how we would like to race the Governor’s Cup,” said Decker, “The next day a race fan that has been following me since I was 12 years old, wrote a check to our team so we could afford to go. Jed Bauer is the fan who is making a difference in my life and I am very thankful.”
While this weekend marks Decker’s first time competing in the prestigious Governor’s Cup event, she is no stranger to the New Smyrna Speedway half-mile. Decker has traveled to Florida the past two seasons for the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, competing 14 times and picking up four top-10 finishes, all in 2014.
