PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to the Stockton Dirt Track over the weekend for the first time since winning a thriller in 2014, Kerry Madsen and his Keneric Racing/American Racing team scored two more Top-10 finishes.

“All in all it was a decent weekend for our race team,” Madsen said. “We came away with two good finishes as we continue our stay in California”

Taking to the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday and Sunday night for the FVP Western Spring Shootout, Madsen got his weekend started by timing his machine in fourth fastest before finishing fifth in his heat race.

Earning a spot in the night’s dash, ‘The Mad Man’, would finish in the seventh position and line up for the 30-lap feature event in the fourth row. On the slicking off track surface, Madsen would battle inside the Top-10 during the entire race, as he went wheel-to-wheel Jason Johnson and Daryn Pittman at times. In what was a wild feature event, the St. Marys, NSW driver ended the first night with a sixth place finish.

Back on Sunday for the second of the two-day event, Madsen would time in a tick slower at 12th fastest, but handled business from the front row of his heat race as he picked up the win.

Working up to the sixth spot in the dash, Madsen would line up in the third row for the 30-lap finale.

On the extremely slick, and deteriorating track surface, Madsen would work the 3/8 mile speedway as he raced inside the Top-Five. The closing stages of the race brought a few stoppages, and restarts were not kind to Madsen, as he would ultimately finish in the seventh spot.

“We had a good enough car to maybe finish a little better each night, but we were able to survive, and escape with a pair of Top-10’,” he added. “Again, have to thank everyone involved with this team for their hard work and continued support.”

2015 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-28, Wins-6, Top-5’s-17, Top 10’s-23

ON TAP: Madsen will return to action this Saturday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA and again on Sunday night in Antioch, CA.
