Aaron Fike nails second straight Badger win, claiming Angell Park opener.

SUN PRAIRIE, WI, May 19---Aaron Fike scored his second straight Badger Midget Series win of the the season, Sunday Night capturing the Miller Genuine Draft 50-lap feature, at Angell Park Speedway.

Chad DeSelle jumped into the lead at the start of the event closely followed by Mike Hess. The duo quickly pulled away from the field, and began lapping cars on the 12th circuit. In lapped traffic DeSelle and Hess were caught by Fike, and Davey Ray. Ray moved into the lead on the 20th lap, and one car length separted the first four cars. Ray's car which began smoking earlier in the event continued, and he held a two car length lead over Fike at the midway point. Fike paced the 36th lap and Ray regained the lead on the next circuit, surrending it back to Fike two laps later. Fike, and Ray continued lapping the field. Ray retired with engine problems on the 44th lap, at the same time the events first caution was displayed for a stalled car.

On the restart third place Josh Wise stopped on the track with a broken steering, causing another restart. Fike had five lapped cars between himself, and second place DeSelle, and cruised unchallenged to 4.41 second victory over DeSelle, Hess, Aaron Fiscus, and fast qualifier Dan Boorse. Fike drove the Les & Greg Nelson owned stealth/Seco-Mopar#95 to the win.

Badger action continues with a 50-lap feature this Sunday Night at Angell Park speedway.
