Kaeding Beats The Rain At Elko
Madsen was trying to win his second consecutive Friday night event after taking the checkered flag last week at Eldora Speedway in his Keneric Racing KPC, but a mechanical issue in the waning laps nearly cost him his runner-up finish.
“The track was fantastic, we just had an issue and we’re very lucky to finish at all,” said Madsen. “It’s been a nightmare, but to give away a race like that, Tim’s good, but these races are hard to win.”
Dollansky tried to take charge of the event early in his special Aggressive Hydraulics/Eyecon Trail Cameras Maxim, but after a dozen laps he knew it was going to be a struggle in front of his home state fans.
“About 12 or 13 laps in our motor laid down and I feel like we’re pretty fortunate to make it to the end,” said Dollansky. “It was a great race and I know Tim started fairly deep so again I hope these Minnesota fans got to see a good race.”
World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship point leader Daryn Pittman logged another solid top-five run, finishing fourth after starting 12th to continue his incredible season in the Kasey Kahne Racing Great Clips Maxim. It was Pittman’s 17th top-10 finish and his 14th top-five run with four wins in 20 events this season.
