SYDNEY (January 28, 2017) — Kerry Madsen won his second consecutive Australian Sprintcar Title Saturday night at Valvoline Raceway. Kerry held off his brother Ian as they became the first brothers to run first and second at the Australian title.

Kerry Madsen started on the front row and led the first 15 laps of the main event before Robbie Farr and Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic champion James McFadden challenged for the lead. McFadden ended up with a flat right front tire while racing for the lead and dropped out of the event while Kerry wrestled the lead back from Farr.

Ian Madsen, who had been strong at Sydney all season, worked his way up from fifth starting spot up to second but not move past his brother as Kerry Madsen claimed the title for the second year in a row. Ian Madsen held on for the runner up spot with Farr, Brooke Tatnell, and Jordyn Brazier rounding out the top five.
