HANFORD, Calif. – Ian Madsen will head west this weekend and reunite with Main Motorsports for a Kings of Thunder 360 sprint car event at Keller Auto Speedway.

Madsen is no stranger with the Main Motorsports team, as he competed with the squad at the 360 Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway, as well as during the opening leg of ASCS Sprint Speedweek in August.

“I am excited to get back behind the wheel of the Main Motorsports car on Saturday night,” Madsen said. “They are a great group of people to work with, and we have a lot of fun racing together.

“We have had some success this year, and hopefully we can get a win on Saturday.”

Madsen is coming off his last race weekend of the season with Sam McGhee Motorsports, during which he earned an eighth-place finish in the opening night of the Last Call at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

The Australian is scheduled to contest the full Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions schedule with Sam McGhee Motorsports next year in the No. 11 entry.

“Charlotte was good for our race team,” Madsen noted. “Friday night we were pretty competitive, and Saturday night we were riddled with some bad luck. We had an engine issue in our heat, and then we endured a flat early in the feature.

“We had speed, though, and we’re optimistic about that moving forward into next year.”
