Angell Park Opens With Doubleheader
SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. — Angell Park Speedway kicks off it 65th season of midget auto racing this upcoming weekend May 14-15 with The Pepsi & Miller Lite Spring Double Header Presented by Sun Prairie Tourism Committee.
The event will be co-sanctioned by the USAC Mopar National Midget Series and the Stark Automotive Group/Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Series.
Bryan Clauson (USAC) and Scott Hatton (Badger) will both try to continue their respective series winning streaks, starting with the Saturday Night May 14 event which will be highlighted by a 30-lap feature.
Clauson has won three straight USAC events including the recent season-opening double header at Dodge City, Kan., and a 2010 season finale. A sweep of the weekend events would allow Clauson to tie Rich Vogler’s all-time USAC mark of five straight National Midget feature wins set during the 1978 season.
Badger will begin its 75th Anniversary season, the oldest midget auto racing sanctioning organization, on Saturday. Hatton won the final two events of the 2010 season, and hopes to continue his winning ways, as he chases the all-time Badger mark of five straight feature wins shared by Billy Wood, John Hartwig and Brad Loyet. Hatton’s 31 APS feature victories has him tied for sixth all-time on the tracks feature win list.
