"Ray Wins Exciting Milwaukee Cup Midget Race"
FRANKLIN, WI, June 29-----Davey Ray scored an exciting victory, Friday Night winning the fourth annual Milwaukee Cup Midget Classic, 25-lap Badger/NAMARS Feature at the Hales Corners Speedway.
Dan Boorse jumped into the lead at the start closely followed by Rob Keelan. With Boorse increasing his lead, Mike Hess, and Chad DeSelle began battling for second, the pair made contact, with DeSelle retiring with a flat tire on the seventh lap.
On the restart Boorse, and Hess ran wheel to wheel for the lead, the pair made contact exiting turn four on the thirteenth lap, causing both to slow, allowing Ray to take the lead. Boorse continued to run second, on Ray's rear bumper. Two cautions during the final three laps kept the field bunched up. Boorse made a last lap effort at Ray, and slid high exiting turn four, allowing Keelan to take runner-up honors, for his career best finish. Rounding out the top five were: Kevin Olson, and Hess.
Fans contributed over $500 extra to the winner, as the winners trophy was on display at the track entrance prior to the nights feature, allowing fans to place money into the Milwaukee Cup. <pre> RESULTS 25-lap Feature: 1.
