Ian Madsen Runs 10th at Piston Cup


PETERSEN MEDIA- Ian Madsen’s 2015 ended in a wild accident, and with the calendar flipping to 2016, Madsen and his KCP Racing team have been busy down under as Madsen earned a second place finish at the Valvoline Raceway before finishing 10th in the Piston Cup in Brisbane, AU.

“We have had really good speed night in and night out, and that is a good feeling,” Ian Madsen said. “We have had a couple nights of bad luck, but when we are able to avoid that, we have been pretty good.”

At the Archerfield Speedway in Brisbane, AU, Madsen at the KCP Racing team kicked the night off by timing the Logan Contractors Supply/Team Kline Electric/Watson’s Express Transport No. 18 machine in eighth fastest out of the 33 cars that assembled in the pit area.

With a two heat race format in play on this night, Madsen would advance to finish in the fourth spot from his sixth starting position in his first heat, before finishing third in his second heat.

Sitting fifth in event points after time trials and heat race action, Madsen would move into the Shootout, though he would get upside down and line up eighth in the 35-lap feature event.

From the fourth row of the feature event, Madsen would battle with the likes of James McFadden and Brad Sweet as they fought for position inside the Top-10. Exchanging spots with some of the best in Australia, Madsen would turn in a strong effort as he finished in the 10th spot when the night came to a close.

“I have to thank my guys for their hard work,” Madsen added. “I didn’t make it easy on them after the Shootout, but we were able to get it fixed and get ready for the show.”

Ian and his KCP Racing team would like to thank Nehring Construction, Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Team Kline Electric, Greenland Homes of Iowa, Royal Flooring, Aspen Aire Inc.
