SUN PRAIRIE, WI, July 14---Chad DeSelle scored a wire to wire victory, Sunday Night, winning the 25-lap Badger Midget Series feature at Angell Park Speedway.The win was fourth career feature win for DeSelle, and third at the facility.
The event got off to a rocky start when John Jones made contact with another car causing him to flip into the front stretch fence, nearly hitting the flag stand. Jones escaped injury, and a small delay took place when the fence was repaired.
On the restart polesitter DeSelle jumped into the lead, followed by Aaron Fiscus, Mike Hess, and Dan Boorse. On the fifth lap DeSelle led a tightly bunched pack of cars with the first six cars separted by only a few car lengths. At the midway point DeSelle held a two second lead over Boorse, with fast qualifer Tracy Hines moving into fifth. DeSelle continued to increase his lead each lap, and began lapping the tail of the field with six laps remaining. With DeSelle in command, a great battle took place for the next six positions. DeSelle finished 3.48 seconds ahead of Hines, Boorse, Brandon Waelti, and Aaron Fike, as nineteen, of the starting field of twenty two cars finished the event which went non-stop.
Davey Ray holds a slim 13 point lead over Aaron Fike, with Mike Hess in third place, heading into the next Sunday's event here at the track, which will be co-sanctioned with the MARA Midget Series.
