WINDOM, Minn. – Kerry Madsen will once again pilot the Big Game Motorsports sprint car next season, marking his fourth-straight season with the Killer Instinct Crossbows backed team.

The team has hired veteran crew chief Cody Jacobs to lead the program. Jacobs most recently worked for Demyan-Rudzik Racing, where he was crew chief for 2010 Knoxville Nationals winner Tim Shaffer.

Madsen most recently worked with crew chief Barry Jackson as part of a partnership with CJB Motorsports. Jackson has decided to focus on his work with CJB Motorsports next season, where he’ll work with driver Brent Marks.

Madsen and the team have earned 18 feature victories during the last three years, including a pair of triumphs in this year, highlighted by winning the Hard Knox Night during the Knoxville Nationals.
