NEW RICHMOND, Wis. – Danny Stratton won the 30-lap Stark Automotive Group/Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Series Sasquatch Indoor Nationals presented by Jack Link’s Beef Jerky Sunday afternoon at the Cedar Lake Speedway Arena.

Polesitter Billy Balog retired from the event with engine problems on the pace lap. When the green flag was waved an eight-car accident occurred entering Turn One forcing the event to be stopped. A second accident on the next restart slowed the event, seven cars were eliminated from competition as a result of both incidents.

Brad Kuhn jumped into the lead followed by Stratton, David Gough and Tracy Hines. Hines moved into third place on the seventh lap. Stratton using the upper groove began to build up momentum and stayed on Kuhn’s bumper, passing Kuhn entering turn One on lap 11.

Once in the lead Stratton pulled away from Kuhn. Hines passed Kuhn for second position with seven laps remaining. Stratton despite running in lapped traffic increased his lead and finished 2.62 seconds ahead of Hines, Kuhn, Thomas Meseruall and Jon Stanbrough.

Stratton drove the Hans Lein owned Spike/Ford-Esslinger No. 2 to the $2,500 first place prize.

“The upper groove came in for my car at the right time it was my only option to pass Brad (Kuhn) for the lead,” commented Stratton. ,

Ryan Schurr for the second straight day won the 25-lap Badger 600 Micro feature, taking the lead on lap 11, which was the fifth lead change of the event. Schurr easily outdistanced Gunner Cummings, Chad Bogar, Derrik Lusk, and Tim Ottenbacher.

Also scoring the double victory for the weekend Tim Brockhouse won the 20-lap Legends Cars feature, finishing ahead of Pat Zandstra and Shon Jacobsen.
