Madsen and KCP Racing Set for Ohio after Mechanical Woe Slows Them in Knoxville
PETERSEN MEDIA- Ian Madsen and KCP Racing are set to compete in Ohio this week after battling with the World of Outlaws this past Friday night, and enduring a weather delayed Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway.
“Friday night was a tough night to make up any ground on, and Saturday night was a challenge with a very long rain delay,” Ian Madsen said. “We had a good run going in the feature, but we had a mechanical issue arise during the feature and forced us to pull off early.”
Friday night at 34 Raceway in Burlington, IA, Madsen got the night started off by timing the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 machine in 14th fastest in qualifying time trials.
Moving into his heat race, the St. Marys, NSW native would race his way to a fifth place finish and lined him up 14thin the feature event. On a track that was extremely fast, Madsen would make a little headway as he battled towards a spot inside the Top-10.
Coming up just short of a Top-10 finish, Madsen would finish 11th and the team would then set their sights on a cameo at Knoxville Raceway.
Checking in at Knoxville Raceway, Madsen and company would be greeted with a rainstorm that led to an extensive delay in the program with the race running into the early hours of Sunday morning.
Timing in 12th quickest in time trials once officials had the surface in racing shape, Madsen would then race to a fourth-place finish in his heat race.
Lining up 14th in the feature event, Madsen would come to life on the lighting fast ½ mile. Working his way through the field, Madsen would race through the Top-10 and find himself up in the sixth spot.
Looking for more, Madsen would slow with an issue on the 17th lap, and his night would come to an end just three laps from the finish.
“It was a long night at Knoxville, and it was unfortunate to end with an issue after coming through the field,” Madsen said. “Looking forward to the Doty Classic this week, and getting to Atomic Speedway as well.”
Ian and his KCP Racing team would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, , Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Cox Design and Fabrication, Armor Electric Company, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.
BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-28, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 8, Top 10’s-20
ON TAP: Ian and KCP Racing will be at the Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday night, before running at Atomic Speedway on Saturday night.
