Chase McDermand Wins 2020 Season Opener of Badger Midgets at Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, WI, Saturday, June 27, 2020)--Chase McDermand of Springfield, IL came from the back twice to score the win in the BADGER Midgets Salute to Harry Turner Classic Saturday, June 27 at Wilmot Raceway.
A broken steering line sent McDermand to the pits during the heat race while leading. The crew made repairs which started McDermand at the tail of the 20-plus car feature field. Just as McDermand worked his way halfway through the field, he was caught in a tangle which sent him to the rear on the restart. After picking off cars one after the other, McDermand worked his way back to second trailing Adam Taylor of Shorewood, IL by nearly a straightaway. A final caution set up McDermand's pass for the lead on the restart completing the last to first run. Taylor ended up second with Tyler Baran of Joliet, IL third.
Union Grove's Chris Carlson held off consistent challenges from runnerup Mike Simons of Genoa City to become the third different modified feature winner of the season in as many outings. New Berlin's Brad McGuire was third.
South Milwaukee's Jay Orr remained undefeated in Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car features following up his June 6 season opening win. Sheboygan's Brody Rivest was second. Rick Zifko of Aurora, IL third.
Pell Lake's Cody Potter made it back to back Street Stock feature wins and two of three on the season. Muskego's Courtney Atkinson was second. Kenosha's Craig Kreuser third.
