AKRON, Ohio (June 11, 2012) – Kerry Madsen and Brad Sweet claimed wins as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series raced twice in Iowa.

Madsen won at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, home of the 52nd Goodyear Knoxville Nationals, and Sweet was the victor at Clay County Fairgrounds in Spencer.

Goodyear is the exclusive tire provider for both the Outlaws and for the weekly 410 sprint car program at Knoxville. The tiremaker supplies the same variety of tread compounds and tire sizes for the Knoxville program as it does for the Outlaws when the touring pros race at the track. The same tire line is offered to other touring series and at weekly programs at tracks all over the United States.

Madsen’s win at Knoxville, where he is a regular, was his third career win in WoO competition and the 17th of his career at Knoxville. It was Madsen’s first WoO win since 2007.

Sammy Swindell finished second at Knoxville, followed by Brian Brown, Donny Schatz and Sweet.

At Clay County, Sweet was followed by Jason Sides, Mark Dobmeier, Chad Kemenah and Madsen.
