Dennis Lee Garbers, Beloved Member of the Midwest Racing Community

It was with a heavy heart we must report the loss of Dennis Garbers, of Fairmont, Minnesota, at the age of 64. Dennis was a big supporter of The Dirt Show, local racing history, and the Kossuth County Museum. Denny's death is a huge loss to his family, friends, and the racing community in Minnesota and Iowa, and he will be very much missed.

From Lakeview Funeral Home:

"Dennis farmed with his dad.  He was an avid Toy Farm Collector and in 1990 won the National Farm Toy Display in Dyersville, IA, which he built from scratch. Dennis was involved in the Borderline Cruisers Car Club and was an active member of the Kossuth County Ag & Motor Sports Museum in Algona, IA. Dennis had a passion for Chevy Nova cars and car racing. He also enjoyed shaking dice, playing cards and dominos. In 2017, Dennis was inducted in the Hall of Fame for the Fairmont Speedway with his dad Dale, which was a special honor for him."
