Waelti scores popular hometown win.

SUN PRAIRIE, WI , July 7---Brandon Waleti captured a popular win in front of his hometown fans, winning the 25-lap Badger Midget Series feature, Sunday Night at Angell Park Speedway. The event was part of the Coca-Cola Showdown, which also featured the USAC Stoops Freighliner Sprint Car Series.

Waelti jumped into the lead at the start closely followed by A.J. Fike. Fike moved around Waelti and into the lead on the fifth circuit. At the same time Tony Stewart moved into 15th place after starting 22nd. The event was halted when Jason Leffler flipped on the ninth lap. Leffler was uninjuried.

On the restart Fike led a blanket of cars which were running several different grooves. For the next several laps Fike was running the upper groove with Waelti on the bottom groove. The pair pulled away from the field, with Waelti getting the lead on the 19th lap. Waelti ran a flawless race the final six laps to edge Fike by .54 seconds for the victory driving the Waelti Racing/Stealth-Esslinger#3. Mike Hess,Tracy Hines, and current Badger point leader Davey Ray rounded out the top five. Stewart finished ninth in the feature.
