PETERSEN MEDIA- Kerry Madsen and his Keneric Racing team met back up with the World of Outlaws over the weekend in Texas and Madsen had a strong showing as he would finish in the fourth spot on Friday night before charging from his 10th starting position to finish third on Saturday night.
“It was a pretty good weekend for our Keneric Racing team,” Kerry Madsen said. “We were in good position to contend for a win on Friday night and we lost a little air pressure and got free, but on Saturday night we were able to pass a lot of good cars from our 10th starting spot and finish third.”
Continuing to run well at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway, Madsen kicked the weekend off by timing the Keneric Health Care/Keneric Racing No. 29 machine in sixth fastest in time trials before winning his heat race.
Lining up in the second row of the Dash, Madsen would finish in the second spot, which would place him on the front row for the 25-lap Texas Outlaw Nationals opening night feature event.
Getting around pole sitter, Sam Hafertepe, Jr on the opening lap, Madsen would take the early lead as he worked the middle of the speedway. A pair of early cautions would bunch the field up and Madsen would continue to pace the field as he would open his lead up before the caution flag again flew on the ninth lap.
The restart would see Madsen fall the second spot as he battled with Daryn Pittman and Joey Saldana. With the track continuing to slick off Madsen would fall back to third and battle with Brad Sweet for the final spot on the podium during the race’s closing laps.
With his car getting just a little to free in the final laps, Madsen would close his night out with a fourth place finish.
Coming back on Saturday night looking to better his top five effort, Madsen would time in 10thquickest in time trials and finish in the fourth spot during heat race competition.
Taking the green flag from the fifth row, Madsen was flawless as he worked around the bottom of the speedway. Seemingly passing guys at will, Madsen quickly hustled his way into the top-five as he dove under Sammy Swindell and Jason Sides.
Using a late restart to his advantage, Madsen would get by David Gravel to take over the fourth spot, and with just a few laps to go, Madsen would take over the third spot as Daryn Pittman suffered a flat tire. A final restart would see Madsen give Joey Saldana fits for the second spot, but on this night he would take the checkered flag with a third place finish.
“Saturday night was a blast coming from the middle of the pack,” Madsen said. “We had a really strong car and to pass that many cars is a pretty tall order. It is a huge credit to this team for all of their hard work, and the Gavranich family and all of our partners for their continued support”
