"Boorse Extends Badger Point Lead With 'Prairie Win"

SUN PRAIRIE, WI, June 24----Dan Boorse extended his series point by winning the 25-lap Badger Midget Series Feature, Sunday Night at Angell Park Speedway. The win was the 59th career feature win at the track for Boorse, and 112th career overall feature win.

Boorse moved under polesitter A.J. Fike at the start to take the lead, closely followed by Jeff Flesher. The pair pulled away from the field, and with Boorse setting a blistering pace he began lapping the tail of the field on the eighth lap. At the midway point he held a two second lead over Flesher.

On the 16th lap Bobby East hit the third turn wall, flipping just as Boorse was about to lap the rookie driver, Boorse slid to a stop to miss East. East escaped injury in the incident. On the restart Boorse used lapped cars behind himself, and Flesher, to cruise unchallenged to a 3.65 second victory. Flesher, Fike, Mike Hess, and Kevin Doty rounded out the top five finishers.

Boorse now holds a 173 point lead over Davey Ray heading into series events this week, on June 29 at the Hales Corners Speedway(Franklin, WI), and at Angell Park Speedway on July 1. <pre> RACE RESULTS
