Willie won over 20 track championships, including five consecutive at Kearney and Hastings from 1967 through 1971. He raced in many special events over a four-State area. Hecke suffered a fatal heart attack in the seat of a race car while waiting for the start of a race on August 14, 1985. He was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 1998.
