Busy Weekend Of Racing Sees Ian Madsen Pick Up Three Top-10’s


PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing with the World of Outlaws, ASCS National Tour, National Sprint League, and two classes at the Knoxville Raceway, Ian Madsen and his KCP Racing team turned in a strong showing as they picked up three Top-10 finishes.

“We had a really good weekend, and I can’t thank everyone involved for all of their efforts,” Ian Madsen said. “It was grueling, but we were pretty good each time we were on the track.”

Kicking a five-race stretch off on Wednesday night with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series at the Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, IL, Madsen would time his Logan Contractors Supply Inc./Aspen Aire/Team Kline Electric No. 18 machine in 11th fastest in his time trials flight.

Starting and finishing sixth in his heat race, the St. Marys, NSW native would make a stop in the night’s Last Chance Showdown for one final shot at moving into the feature event.

On the very tight Jacksonville Speedway, Madsen would work from his sixth starting position to finish in the third spot and keep his night alive.

Lining up in the last row for the 40-lap feature event, Madsen would get his car moving through the field until he would be forced to take a trip to the work area with damage to his machine.

Restarting the race, Madsen would again work his way forward as he brought his machine home with a 14th place finish.

Pulling out his 360ci entry on Thursday night to take on the Lucas Oil ASCS National Series at the Lakeside Speedway, Madsen’s night would start with him lining up fourth in his heat race and racing his way to a second place finish.

Earning enough points for the Top-Eight redraw, Madsen would find himself in the third spot for the 30-lap A main event.

When the race came to life, Madsen would fall back to the fifth spot as Johnny Herrera and Aaron Reutzel were able to get by, but the Royal Flooring/Bobcat/TammyHeckart.com machine hung with the lead pack as they found traffic early in this tilt.

A lap 17 restart saw Madsen get by Retuzel to take over the fourth spot as he chased after Herrera who now ran ahead of him in the third spot. Unable to do anything with Herrera would come across the finish line in the fourth spot.

Going back to his 410ci entry on Friday night at the I-80 Speedway with the National Sprint League, Madsen would find himself third quickest after the qualifying session.
