Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 15, 2020) - Big Game Motorsports driver Kerry Madsen picked up a pair of top-10 finishes last weekend during the Brownells Big Guns Bash.
The Killer Instinct Crossbows backed team placed 10th on Friday and seventh on Saturday during the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway.
"It's acceptable I guess," Madsen said. "On Friday we drew late to qualify and were ninth quickest in our group. We were really good in the heat and got up to third (from fifth)."
That lined Madsen up on the outside of the fifth row for the main event.
"We were coming on strong in the A Main," he said. "I think we were up to sixth. Something weird happened in the car. It turns out the left rear shock had a problem so we hung on for 10th. It was holding the thing down so it made it extremely loose and hard to hang on to."
Madsen was battling for a top five before the late problem dropped him to a 10th-place result.
The weekend wrapped up on Saturday. Madsen timed in sixth quickest in his group before placing third in a heat race to lock into the 12th starting position for the A Main.
"We were really, really good in the A Main and came up to seventh," he said. "It's a shame we didn't get any further. The car was really strong at the end of the race.
"I feel like we're so close to really showing what we've got and putting it all together. Every time we race we're learning the car and learning each other. I feel like we're really close to being where we need to be."
The team plans to return to action this Friday and Saturday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., with the World of Outlaws.
