Inside Line Promotions - BEAVER DAM, Wis. (June 8, 2020) - Kerry Madsen recorded a pair of top-10 finishes with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last weekend at Beaver Dam Raceway.
The Killer Instinct Crossbows backed driver guided Big Game Motorsports to a ninth-place result on Friday before ending eighth on Saturday.
I thought it was a step in the right direction," he said. "The whole weekend was a step forward."
Madsen qualified seventh quickest and finished third in a heat race on Friday to lock into the 11th starting position for the A Main.
"I screwed up and let (Donny) Schatz get by me in the heat race so we missed the dash," he said. "We had a really good car in the A Main, but it was really hard to pass. Unfortunately, we couldn't get up the finishing order further than ninth."
Saturday started off stronger with Madsen setting quick time during qualifying. He then won a heat race to garner a spot into the dash. Unfortunately, he pulled the second-highest number - seven - during the dash draw to line up on the inside of the last row.
"We were great in qualifying and the heat race," he said. "The dash draw didn't go our way. I thought I was going to pass for sixth in the dash and we ended up eighth. We had a good start to the feature, but we went a little aggressive on the car setup and we were a little too tight. I couldn't attack hard enough in close quarters."
Madsen battled inside the top 10 throughout the feature before placing eighth. It marked his fourth top 10 of the season during World of Outlaws competition.
Big Game Motorsports will head to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, this Friday and Saturday for the Brownells Big Guns Bash with the World of Outlaws.
"The qualifying pace is there now and I'm confident," Madsen said. "We're still in the learning curve, but I think we're right there. It's a matter of putting the whole night together."
