Late pass nets Haddy MSA Angell Park Speedway triumph



(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 1, 2021 – Twenty-nine year racing veteran Tim Haddy of Waupun used a late pass of 18-year-old third-year 360 Sprint Car driver Tyler Davis of Franklin to notch his first Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main victory of the 2021 season in the 20-lap headliner at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. on Sunday, Aug. 1.


The 19th MSA 360 Sprint Car Series racing event of the 2021 season featured a field of 23 cars in the series’ second appearance of the season at the historic Angell Park Speedway.


Tyler Davis, who was the evening’s fast qualifier, jumped into the lead of the 20-lap MSA main event in turn one of the opening lap from the pole position before a red flag was displayed for a seven-car incident along the backstretch involving Austin Hartmann of Sheboygan Falls, whose machine flipped on its side, Tony Wondra of Campbellsport, Justin Miller of Plymouth, Preston Ruh of Elkhart Lake, Tyler Brabant of Waupun, Bill Taylor of Boltonville and five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee.


After a complete restart, Tyler Davis again bolted into the lead and proceeded to build up a full straightaway lead over second starter Tim Haddy on the heavily rubbered-up track surface.


On lap 9, Davis began to encounter slower traffic on the one-lane track, which allowed Haddy to cut the gap significantly. Haddy stayed within Davis’ tire tracks until lap 19 when Davis slid high and Haddy pounced to take over the top spot.


MSA point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls, who started third, also moved underneath Davis on the final lap as Haddy went on to notch his 19th career MSA A-main victory.


Arenz came home second, Will Gerrits of Waupun, who started sixth, finished third, Tyler Davis placed an MSA career-best fourth and Jack Vanderboom of Dousman, who started fourth, finished fifth.


MSA heat race victories went to Will Gerrits, 2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove and Jack Vanderboom.


Tyler Davis earned fast qualifier honors with a top lap of 14.284 seconds around the historic third-mile clay oval.


The MSA will return to action on Saturday, Aug. 7 for Autograph Night at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.


Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.
