Bordenave Tops Western Midget Action At Antioch

ANTIOCH, Calif. — Underneath a full moon over turn two, Sage Bordenave earned his second career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature at Antioch Speedway.

Bordenave and his Kevin Felkins-owned teammate Brody Petrie split the heat race competition. A three-car invert placed Bryant Bell on the pole in his home track race alongside Bordenave, with Petrie and Gary Dunn sharing the second row.

A red flag fell on lap two when Logan Mitchell flipped the No. 96 in turn two. The driver of the Mayer Iron-sponsored Boss Chassis was uninjured but unable to continue.

The next caution flew when John Bordenave and Dunn got hooked together on the backstretch. They were unable to get separated and spent the rest of the feature in the infield.

The most serious stoppage came with a red flag on lap four. Tyler Dolacki flipped wildly in Cameron Beard’s No. 24 entering turn three. Dolacki was able to walk away under his own power.

When the dust settled, Bell held the lead over Bordenave and Petrie. After pulling away on the restart, Bell faltered with an engine issue that handed the lead to Bordenave on lap 12.

Bordenave paced Petrie over the final eight laps with Kyle Hawse finishing third.

The finish:

Feature (20 laps): 1. 35x Sage Bordenave, 2. 35s Brody Petrie, 3. 20 Kyle Hawse, 4. 09 Bryant Bell, 5. 22q David Prickett, 6. 24 Tyler Dolacki, 7. 11 John Bordenave, 8. 35 Gary Dunn, 9. 96 Logan Mitchell, DNS: 20w Nate Wait
