Madsen was a clear cut above the rest of the field and essentially was untouchable in the 35 lap final. He showed without doubt that his American world of Outlaws Racing program in recent years (Also running for the WA/Bob Gavranich-owned Keneric Racing Team) has moulded him to arguably the best Sprintcar Driver that Australia has ever produced.

At the get go Madsen was able head Brooke Tatnell and California’s Tim Kaeding with Robbie Farr showing early pace and moving into third.

Tatnell rode out a wild roll with just a handful of laps remaining after contact with the turn 4 fence – he  exited the event at that juncture.

After the gruelling 35 laps, the Chequers fell on Madsen ahead of an impressive run from SA’s Luke Dillon, Robbie Farr and Tim Kaeding.

It was one of the most spirited drives in WA this season and in a marvellous good will gesture, Madsen announced on the podium that the Keneric Racing Team would donate the entire $20,000 winners cheque to the Kick It Foundation – a great movement that raises money for paediatric and young Adult cancer research. Well done guys !
