Doty Snaps 'Praire Victory Drought

Kevin DotyBy Bryan Gapinski Sun Prairie, Wis., August 1, 2004--Kevin Doty returned to victory lane at Angell Park Speedway Sunday Night, capturing the 25-lap Badger Midget Series feature. The win was the first for Doty at the track since August 6, 2000.
In a classic duel Doty, and Dan Boorse exchanged the lead five times during the first eleven laps, with Boorse leading six laps, one more than Doty.
With Boorse using the low groove, and Doty running the higher line Doty finally inched ahead on the 12th lap, and began to pull away. Two laps later Doty began lapping the tail of the field. Davey Ray passed Boorse for second on the 16th lap.
Doty who drove the Bud Doty owned Ellis/Sesco-Mopar ran through lapped traffic perfectly, for the remainder of the event which went caution free.
For the second straight event Ray finished second, trailing Doty by 1.77 seconds at the finish. Series point leader Scott Hatton, Brandon Waelti, and Australian Adam Clarke completed the top five finishers. Hatton holds a 150 point lead over Ray heading into the August 8 event at the track.
