Hatton Adds to Angell Park Win Total 

Scott HattonBy Bryan Gapinski Sun Prairie, Wis., July 13, 2008---Scott Hatton won the 50-lap Badger Midget Series feature Sunday Night at Angell Park Speedway. The win marked the 30th career feature victory at the track for Hatton, seventh place on the all-time track feature win list.
Bobby East paced the initial two laps, before Michael Pickens took over the lead. Pickens and East pulled away from the field. On lap 8, Pickens suffered a broken rear axle midway down the backstretch causing the car to flip several times. After landing on its side, the car caught on fire. Pickens emerged uninjured.
East inherited the lead on the restart. Hatton moved into second place on lap 9, and one lap later took the lead from East. Hatton, running the cushion on a rough track increased his lead each lap, and held a 1/3-lap lead, when the red flag appeared for a flip involving fast qualifier Nick Lundgreen on lap 26. East restarting in third place suffered mechanical problems lining up for the restart and retired from the event.
Hatton quickly moved away from the field and again began lapping cars again on lap 35. Hatton spent the remainder of the event in lapped traffic. Sixth place Robbie Ray flipped on lap 48, escaping injury, due to curfew regulations the event was scored complete. Hatton driving the Huston Solution Racing/Stealth/Mopar#15 finished ahead of Brandon Waelti, Brad Loyet, Mike Hess and Matt Smith. Hess holds a 98-point lead over Waelti heading into the July 20 event at Angell Park. 
Feature Lap Leaders: East 1-3, Pickens 4-8, East 9-10, Hatton 11-50.
* Justin Allgaier flipped in semi feature. Pickens flipped on lap 8 of feature. Lundgreen flipped on lap 26 of feature. Robbie Ray flipped on lap 48 of feature. All drivers uninjured. Feature shortened to 48-laps due to curfew regulations.
