Kerry Madsen Showing Strength Heading Into AGCO Jackson Nationals
Inside Line Promotions - HAUBSTADT, Ind. (June 22, 2020) - Kerry Madsen is riding momentum and confidence entering the 42nd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals.
The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports driver has recorded six straight top-10 finishes with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series heading into the crown jewel event at Jackson Motorplex this Thursday through Saturday.
"I'm confident and I think we can run well," he said. "It'd be nice to put it on the podium at the boss's track. I feel like we have some confidence within the team. We're getting to know each other and the car, which is showing. We've been aiming to get the consistency. Then it's working on the little things and hopefully that will transition to the next level."
Madsen scored a pair of top 10s with the World of Outlaws last weekend at Tri-State Speedway.
The two-day event began on Friday with Madsen setting quick time during qualifying.
"Qualifying went well and then we were in the first heat race," he said. "It was really greasy and unfortunately we ran third. That put us starting ninth in the feature. We lost a spot early in the grease and then a couple more spots, but we were better in the later stage and got back up to ninth."
The weekend concluded on Saturday. Madsen qualified fifth quickest to start the program.
"We qualified well for when we went out," he said. "We won the heat and were pretty good in the dash."
A heat race victory put Madsen into the dash. He then gained a position to finish fifth, which lined him up on the inside of the third row for the main event.
"We were running fifth and got a bad restart," he said. "We gave up some spots and had to battle back to end eighth. Just like on Friday we were really good toward the end, but it was too little too late."
