Boorse wins Hales Badger/Namars Midget show.

FRANKLIN, WI, August 9---Dan Boorse scored a hard fought victory, winning the 25-lap Badger Midget/NAMARS Midget Series co-sanctioned event Friday Night at the Hales Corners Speedway. It was the first event of the Badger/NAMARS tripleheader.

The event got off to a rocky start with a five car tangle on the second lap, which saw Jay Drake flip. Drake was uninjured in the incident. Chad DeSelle jumped into the lead at the start over Mike Hess, and Davey Ray. Boorse moved from seventh to second by the sixth lap. Kevin Doty flipped on the eighth lap halting action. Doty was uninjured.

On the restart DeSelle led Boorse, Ray, Hess, and series point leader Aaron Fike. Ray retired with raditor problems on the tenth lap, and a stalled car brought out the caution on the 12th circuit. During the caution Boorse made contact with DeSelle. On the restart the pair ran wheel to wheel with Boorse gaining the lead on the 14th lap. Boorse began to pull away from the field as a great five car battle took place for third. On the 19th circuit Hess and DeSelle made contact, allowing Brandon Waelti to take over second, with DeSelle falling back to sixth.

At the finish Boorse was 2.84 seconds ahead of Waelti, Hess, Aaron Fiscus, and Fike. For Boorse drove the Don Boorse owned Stealth-Gaerte#88, it was his third feature win of the season. Both Boorse and Hess were fined $200 each, for driving infractions during the event, by series officials. Drake established a new 15-lap track record winning the semi-feature besting Jerry Coons four year old mark.
