Though he started mid-pack for both feature events over the weekend, Kerry Madsen turned in strong finishes as he continued his very strong, and consistent, 2014 season by way of his finishes of fourth and seventh place over the weekend with the World of Outlaws.
“It was another strong weekend for our Keneric Racing/American Racing team,” Madsen said. “We did not time in well with the three heat format, but we continue to have a very fast racecar, and we were able to pass some cars and make some noise.”
On a very rare, and narrow, Thunderbowl Speedway surface on Friday night, Madsen lined up 10th in the feature event, after winning his heat, and finishing 10th in the Dash.
Where most guys struggled to find the room to move forward, the St. Marys, NSW turned Knoxville, IA resident, was one of the few who was able make the high side work, as well as beat drivers to the bottom, as he grinded his way to a fourth place finish.
Saturday night saw a more typical Thunderbowl Speedway but, narrowly missing the heat-race invert, Madsen was able to transfer from the third row, but lined up for the feature event in the 13th spot.
With the track slick, and extremely racy, Madsen was able to make some swift moves to work his way inside the Top-10. With just a handful of laps remaining, Madsen was able to race his way past David Gravel to secure a seventh place finish.
“This team has really been clicking, and it is great to be a part of,” Madsen said. “We are running well at some tracks that we have not in the past, so hopefully we can keep this up, and wind up in victory lane soon.”
