BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 28, 2021) – The “Madman” Kerry Madsen has been on a tear aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car, not only keeping the seat warm for three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer, Tony Stewart, but doing so in an incredible manner, most recently capturing five consecutive top-ten finishes during action across the upper-Midwest, scoring a pair of $10,000 victories in the process, all of which accomplished during World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competition. 

Madsen, driver of the Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car, joined the Greatest Show On Dirt during visits to Huset’s Speedway and Jackson Motorplex over the last seven days, entering The Showdown which featured the $30,000-to-win Huset’s 50 and the $50,000-to-win Jackson Nationals.

After kicking-off the week-long venture with third and eighth-place finishes during Huset’s 50 action on Monday and Tuesday, June 21-22 – the eighth-place score occurring during the $30,000 finale – Madsen and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing turned their attention to the Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, where the three-day Jackson Nationals commenced on Thursday, June 24. Wasting little time becoming acclimated with the state-of-the-art venue, Madsen was quick right out of the gate and opened the event with an impressive 13-spot rally to win on Thursday. Head turning, nonetheless, Madsen climbed from 14th to second in just seven laps, eventually stealing the lead from Logan Schuchart with a turn four slider with four circuits remaining. 

The end result was the same for Madsen on Friday, this time charging ahead from sixth to win his second $10,000 prize in 24 hours, doing so with a move around Carson Macedo on lap 13. In an attempt to spoil Madsen’s hard-fought momentum, Mother Nature did her best to crash the $50,000-to-win Jackson finale, but action was ultimately moved to Sunday. 

Capping his week of success, Madsen finished fourth in the 35-lap Jackson Nationals blockbuster, fading slightly after starting second on the main event grid. Logan Schuchart was the victor, followed by David Gravel, Brad Sweet, and Madsen.

“This car is just unbelievable,” Kerry Madsen expressed in an interview at Jackson, a 27-time World of Outlaws winner over his career. “The Ford power plant is so good. It’s so much fun to drive. Ricky [Warner] had this thing on rails. I committed to the top and just never lifted.”

An upcoming schedule for Kerry Madsen and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing has yet to be determined. Fans are encouraged to keep alert online, as well as on social media, for continuing updates regarding Madsen’s Tony Stewart Racing schedule.
