Stratton Scores Again!

Danny StrattonSun Prairie, Wis., June 25, 2005-Danny Stratton scored his second straight Badger Midget Series feature victory Sunday Night at Angell Park Speedway. Last week Stratton regained the lead on the final lap, this week he led all 25 laps.
On the opening lap a complete restart was required after Brian Ramstack flipped, escaping injury. On the restart Stratton set the pace, and on an extremely fast track, and built up a 1.5 second lead by the fourth lap. The events only caution appeared when Aaron Fiscus stalled on the track on the sixth lap.
On the restart Stratton again pulled away from the field and enjoyed a three second advantage over Brad Kuhn at the mid-way point, one lap later Stratton began lapping the tail of the field. Kuhn, Scott Hatton, and fast qualifier Tracy Hines waged a torrid battle for second place, while Stratton continued lapping slower cars. 
Despite heavy lapped traffic the final two laps Stratton finished 4.12 seconds ahead of Hatton, Kuhn, Hines, and Brandon Waelti. Stratton drove the Hans Lein owned Spike/Esslinger entry, and moved into second place in series standings, trailing leader Davey Ray by 49 points heading into the July 3 event at the track.
