Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 27, 2020) - Kerry Madsen tied his season-best result last Saturday during a rare 360ci sprint car start at Knoxville Raceway.
The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored competitor guided Big Game Motorsports to the second quickest qualifying time in their group. Madsen then maneuvered from sixth to fourth place in a heat race and from sixth to second place in the A Main.
"I didn't know what to expect, but that thing is a Cadillac," he said. "We qualified well and in the A Main it raced really well. We got unlucky with the way the cautions fell a couple of times when we passed cars, but a caution came out to give them their spot back. We passed a lot of cars and we had a strong run at the end. That was a nice warmup for the 360 Knoxville Nationals."
Madsen didn't fare as well in two 410ci sprint car starts, placing 14 th on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway and on Tuesday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., during the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.
"We tore the car up at Port Royal earlier this month and it hasn't felt the same," he said. "It just didn't go well in the A Main at Lernerville. It was pretty disappointing. We expected to go forward.
"Saturday was sort of the same thing. We didn't perform as well as we should have by any stretch of the imagination. I don't know why. We've been pretty good there. We're going to put a new car together this week."
Madsen plans on competing on Thursday at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis., during the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race; on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway; and on Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.
