Ian Madsen has had a season that many drivers dream about. He has won just about everywhere he has raced, finished tenth at the King Royal in Eldora a few weeks ago, and last night, a week after falling out early in the National Sprint League A-Main, he redeemed himself with a dominating win at the Knoxville Raceway. Madsen battled early with fellow Australian Jamie Veal. When Veal fell out of the race, Madsen had it all to himself. He told KNIA/KRLS Sports this win comes at the perfect time of the season. Danny Lasoski was closing early but ran out of laps to make a pass. Clint Garner won his sixth race of the season at Knoxville, which he dedicated to his brother-in-law, who passed away earlier this week. Next up is the two biggest weeks in a sprint car driver’s season. Thursday begins the 26th Annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals.
