The leaders after the first round of the Badgerland Challenge at Madison are still leading the way after last Saturday night’s second round at the Jefferson Speedway.

After winning the opening round at Madison, Shaun Scheel still leads the Late Model standings despite a fifteenth place finish on Saturday night. After the two events, Scheel has 91 points followed by Jacob Nottestad (87), Stephen Scheel (86), Dale Nottestad (78), and Tyler James (67).

Robert Hansberry Jr. was also able to maintain his lead in the Sportsman division after Saturday night’s race. Hansberry Jr., the first round winner, shows the way with 121 points just four points ahead of Jason Thoma (117). The Taylor Brothers (97), Terry Wangsness (96), and Tim Coley (95) round out the top five.

Point standings are maintained separate from each track’s weekly points. Fifty points are awarded to the winner of the feature with a declining scale of two points for each position. The winner of a heat / qualifying race receives six points while setting fast time earns ten points. Each position in heats and qualifying declines by one point.

Round Three of the Badgerland Challenge returns to Madison International Speedway on Friday, August 3rd before winding up at Jefferson Speedway on Saturday, August 25th.
