INDIANAPOLIS – Ian Madsen’s season is not quite finished as the St. Marys, New South Wales, native is set to return to his native Australia to compete for DTM Motorsport to close 2019 and open 2020.

“I am very much looking forward to driving for Sydney, Australia, based DTM Motorsports for about a month over in Australia,” Madsen said. “It is a very professional outfit, and I am super pumped to try and pick up a couple wins for them.”

Madsen’s schedule will kick off on Boxing Day at Sydney Speedway, where he will kick off the International Series. Running the entire series, the team will then head towards some of Australia’s premier events.

Madsen and DTM Motorsport will contest the President’s Cup, The King’s Challenge, and the prestigious Grand Annual Classic.

“The team has had a really good season so far with Jake Baines in the driver’s seat,” Madsen said. “When I get down there, Baines will actually turn into the crew chief, and I am really excited to work with him and build on their early success.”

Following the Grand Annual Classic, Madsen will then return home and set his sights on his eighth season with Iowa-based KCP Racing.

“It will be nice to have some time off to de compress and reflect on 2019, but I am excited to get back after and really kick 2020 off,” Madsen said. “I really believe it helps to get down there and race, and I hope it leads to the start of a great eighth season with KCP Racing when I return home.”
