ROSSBURG, Ohio - May 6, 2016 - Kerry Madsen dominated Friday night's #LetsRaceTwo opener at Eldora Speedway as he bested his former World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series colleagues and beat back a challenge from All Star Circuit of Champions regular Chad Kemenah to score his first series win since August 2015.
Madsen was on a mission in the night's feature, after starting on the pole in his No. 29 Keneric Health car, he was the class of the field. Kemenah, who charged forward from a 10th place starting position, got within one half second at one point, but was never able to make the pass on the Aussie.
"I've never ran a race out there where it was so slow out there - not typically our strong suit," Madsen said. "So the guys worked so hard on the car all night. The car was unbelievable. Just couldn't be happier with the win."Read more: Madsen Bests Outlaws at Eldora
