It had been seven seasons since Gansemer hoisted the hardware as a regional champion, but his “Ruttin’ Deere” got back in the groove at Pierce County’s Showdown in Curdtown by taking a runner-up behind Ken Witt. After Session Two of Anoka’s Shootout was drowned out, the series continued the next night in Witt’s hometown Houston, where it was “Ruttin’” who was struttin’ as the best of the natural Supers. Having made steady improvement throughout their rookie national season, the Rachners and their “Long-Haul Harvester” picked up their first win in Norwalk, but Gansemer’s third 29-point performance still clinched it.
