      Hi All,
      Latest news from The Prairie has the weekly racing suspended until further
      notice. The firemen are meeting with some new investors and might be ready
      to open as soon as July. (Guess they are done losing their own money but
      would be willing to lose some elses!)The 5 USAC races are still on the
      schedule.
      If I believe the weather channel the next 7 days are going to rain
      everywhere anyway! Anyone starting to order the materials for the ark
      building?
      Changing my schedule each hour.
      See you down the road.

        Hi All,
        Sunday the USAC Midgets were at Angell Park in Sun Prairie Wisconsin.
        There was a chance of showers and some light mist was felt during the
        night and a light shower after the races cut the after race dance party
        short. Angell Park ran last night too but tonight with 4 cars from Badger
        added to the field they were at 24 cars. The track was slow to pack in
        with the overcast afternoon so qualifying got started late with the first
        car out Brian Clauson hitting the wall causing the team to withdraw the
        car and bring out a back up car. Brad Sweet was next out and took fast
        time honors with a 15.013 second lap around the 1/3-mile track. Brad
        Loyet, Mike Hess and Tracy Hines won the heats and after a quick
        intermission the feature was on the track. The 30-lap feature got off to a
        slow start with 2 cars breaking and bringing out yellows before two laps
        were in the books. The 3rd restart saw 11 cars stopped in the fourth turn
        as a couple of cars spun then two more tangled trying to go outside of the
        spinners and then some more piling into the stalled cars blocking the
        track. Four cars were heavily damaged and eliminated. The race resumed
        with Davey Ray and Jerry Coons JR in front and was slowed when Zach Daum
        put out so much smoke on the 12th lap you couldn’t see the track. Ray and
        Coons resumed the battle with Ray getting back to the front only to have
        the car break and bring out another yellow with 5 laps left. Two more
        yellows for stalls left us with a green, white checkered finish. Coons was
        in front but Dave Darland made a charge and Coons kept the top spot. On
        the backstretch of the last lap Sweet made his move inside of Coons and
        took the lead to steal a win tonight. Coons crossed second and Darland was
        followed by Hines.

          Hi All,
          Sunday was a short drive to Angell Park where the annual sweet corn
          festival was taking place and they would race for the first time since the
          Independence holiday weekend. The races tonight featured MSA360 sprints
          (23 cars), legends (18) and the IRS midgets (15). The 1/3-mile dirt oval
          looked wet and had some rough spots tonight. The winged sprints were fast
          and Lance Fassbender turned a 13.362 second lap to take fast time with
          13.368 for Danny Schlafer being second fast. Kurt Mayhew took fast time
          honors for the midgets at 17.439 with Allen Gillis just a tick off for
          second with a 17.462 lap. The legend cars drew for position. Dan Troyan
          and Brian Peterson took the legend heats. Mayhew started 6th and won the
          first midget heat Loran Critchett JR won the second heat from 3rd. Al
          Schlafer, Scotty Thiel and Randy Call won the sprint heats from the front
          row. Tim Haddy hit the inside fence at the start of the third heat and
          flipped. The legends started 16 cars in a 20-lap feature and had only one
          yellow for a lap 15 spin. Peterson started third and raced to a big lead
          before Joel Wyttenbach came from 13th to the runner up spot. After the
          restart with 5 laps to go Peterson held off repeated passing attempts from
          Wyttenbach to score another feature win. The 15-lap IRS midget feature was
          next and got off to a slow start with a flip by Scott Koerner. Gillis
          started 7th and did his passing on the low side as the track had a big
          cushion building about half way up the slight banking. Loran Critchett ran
          well from his pole start but Gillis took over and built up a big lead and
          took the checkers just after Doug Orseske flipped on the backstretch. The
          checkers and red ended the event with Gillis and Critchett being followed
          by Mayhew. The final race was the 30-lap sprint feature starting 22 cars.
          This turned into a real flip fest with all drivers being able to walk away
          uninjured. Keith Olenick hit the front wall and rolled twice on the second
          lap. Paul Pokorski flipped in the third turn on the sixth lap. By this
          time Fassbender had moved up from his 10th starting spot to fourth running
          way up in the heavy cushion next to the wall. On the restart Call and Ben
          Schmidt got into the back wall and while slowing collected some other cars
          with Dave Lisowe flipping. Kurt Davis had come from 5th to the lead with
          Jason Schultz in second but Fassbender drove around the front runners and
          started to pull away with Davis and now Scott Neitzel following. On the
          12th lap Danny Schlafer and Schultz came up on a slower car and Schlafer
          went over a tire with both Schultz and Schlafer flipping into the catch
          fence taking down some poles. At this point it was 10PM and curfew says
          they couldn’t restart plus the fence needed work too so the race was
          called complete with Fassbender getting the trophy.

            Hi All,
            Sunday night was midget racing at Angell Park in Sun Prairie Wisconsin for
            the USAC midgets (24) and Illini Racing Series (13). This was the second
            day of racing on the Hall of Fame weekend and the track was drier than
            Saturday but smooth and wide. Dave Darland was the fast qualifier with a
            14.948 second lap around the one third dirt oval. The IRS midgets drew for
            position and Kurt Mayhew and Derrick Gough won the heats. Bryan Clauson,
            Darren Hagen and Brad Kuhn won the USAC heats. Levi Roberts rode the fence
            and flipped on the first lap of the third heat. The IRS feature went all
            green for 20 laps and Mayhew and Allen Gillis took the challenge to start
            last and try for the win and an extra $200. Mayhew picked a good outside
            line and went through the traffic quickly while Gillis got hung up behind
            some slower cars. Eddie Sauer and Sean Murphy had gotten off to a big lead
            but Mayhew came on the outside and passed them for the lead. Mayhew won by
            a big margin as Gillis got to second at the finish with Murphy third. The
            USAC feature went 9 laps with Jerry Coons JR leading from the front when a
            caution appeared for a Scott Hatton spin. After being restarted Hatton was
            catching up to the field but something broke and he went straight into the
            first turn wall and flipped end over end three times. He was uninjured.
            Coons held the lead but Clauson was working to the inside and middle of
            the track and got even with Coons for several laps before pulling into the
            lead. Coons then had another battle on his hands as Kuhn caught up in
            third. One more yellow came out for a lap 20 spin then Coons and Kuhn
            battled while Davey Ray came on strong on the inside and nearly took
            third. Clauson scored another win over Coons, Kuhn and Ray as the racing
            was done by 9PM on a warm night.

              Hi All,
              Monday was a bright day but very humid although the wind did start drying
              off the pavement by mid morning. The Badger Midgets were rescheduled for
              an early start at Angell Park in Sun Prairie Wisconsin with qualifying at
              5PM. I arrived just after 3PM and found a good field of 21 midgets and 4
              of the new micro class. The midgets qualified with New Zealand’s Michael
              Pickens the fast timer at 14.784 seconds around the fast 1/3-mile clay
              oval. The track had a soft spot or just some super traction in the second
              turn and Troy DeCaire lifted both front wheels off the ground before the
              car twisted and then did several end over end flips ending his night
              early. He was able to walk away. Jason Dull came out and did the same
              wheel stand but let off and only slid on his side before bouncing upright.
              He was able to race the rest of the night. Pennsylvania’s Chad Borgar won
              the micro heat and later took the feature too over Preston Benisch.
              Brandon Waelti, Matt Smith and Robbie Ray were the midget heat winners.
              Mike Hess started from the pole in the 30-lap midget feature and led three
              laps until Bubba Altig who started 8th got around the outside and took
              command. Scott Hatton stalled for a yellow after 16 laps but Altig kept
              the lead although Smith and Pickens had got around Hess. On the 28th lap
              Smith hit the cushion in the second turn and bounced once then was hit by
              Hess and flipped for a red flag. Altig got a good restart and pulled away
              from Pickens who had started 10th. Altig got the win over Pickens, Davey
              Ray and David Budres from 14th. The races were done by 8PM and we had over
              two hours of bench racing to complete before the short drive home.
