Well it took a touch longer than we expected, but Sprintcar Champion Kerry Madsen has secured a ride with Big Game Motorsports driving the #2 Muddy Sprintcar for season 2017.
Madsen was left without a 2017 ride when the Australian-owned “KENERIC racing/American Racing Custom Wheels” Team called it a day in the latter part of the current American season. (see following link : http://torquetube.com.au/2016/08/20/keneric-racing-shuts-down-its-american-racing-outfit/ )
Madsen’s appointment seems to have come at the expense of Danny Lasoski who was released from the Big Game Team the day prior.
Madsen will race all the Blue Ribbon Sprintcar events on the American Calendar commencing with the DIRTcar Nationals to be held in Florida in February. The Team will also race the majority of World of Outlaw races and many of the local Knoxville events.
We wish Kerry and the Big Game Team all the success for the 2017 season.
