Hatton Scores Second Straight Badger Win
BEAVER DAM, WI, July 7------Defending series championship Scott Hatton scored his second straight Badger Midget Series feature victory, Saturday Night, winning the 25-lap feature run at the Raceway at Powercom Park.
Polesitter Rick Mueller paced the opening lap, with Hatton taking the lead as the pair exited the second turn on the second lap. Great battles through out the field were waged as Hatton continued pulling away from the field each circuit. Hatton began lapping the tail of the field, at the midway point, as Davey Ray took over second place. Boyd Calvert spun on the 19th lap bringing out the caution erasing Hatton's three second lead. On the restart Alex crimmings hit the wall, and flipped escaping injury.
Hatton used a lap car between himself and Ray to his advantage, with Ray pulling to a car length several times, but Ray trailed Hatton by 1.13 seconds at the finish. The win was Hatton's fourth career at the facility. Following Hatton, and Ray were: Mueller, Brad Weber, and Jeff Flesher, as twenty of the twenty two cars finished the event. Craig Carey, and Rick LaBrosse escaped injury in separte preliminary race flips. <pre> RACE RESULTS 25-LAP FEATURE: 1. Scott Hatton 2. Davey Ray 3. Rick Mueller 4. Brad Weber 5. Jeff Flesher 6.
