Brad Kuhn is four for four in the USAC Badger Midget Series. The Avon, Indiana
native scored another victory Sunday night at Angell Park Speedway in Sun
If he wins next Sunday it would tie him with John Hartwig for the most
consecutive wins to start a season in the series 71 year history. Hartwig set the
record in 1973.
“The whole thing is pretty cool,” said Kuhn. “But I’m my biggest
critic. When we go to any race we always go with the thought of winning. We’ve
had a great start to the season, but we still have a lot of races to go.”

Kuhn started the feature race in the fourth row, with several cars ahead of him.
Jake Slotten flipped on the opening lap of the 30 lap feature. He was not
injured but it caused a complete restart. Mike Hess took the lead with Kuhn
moving into 4th place on the second circuit.
There were two more cautions over the next two laps when Danny Stratton and
Scott Hatton both stopped on the track. On the 5th lap, Kuhn moved into 2nd
place. By lap 10 Hess had a strong lead over Kuhn but the Avon, Indiana racer
caught him within two laps.
Kuhn increased his lead with each lap and finished 6.16 seconds ahead of Hess at
the finish. The USAC Racer uses K&N Engineering Products. “Our engines last a
lot longer with K&N,” said Kuhn. “We notice additional performance and a big increase in power."
