ALGER, Wash. — Sammy Swindell dominated the opening round of the Monster Meltdown Friday night at Skagit Speedway to earn his third World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season and his first win at the Washington bullring since 1979.

Kerry Madsen was the runner-up for his third consecutive podium finish as Paul McMahan, Joey Saldana and World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship leader Daryn Pittman rounded out the top five with the series embarking on its west coast Gold Rush Tour of nine races in 10 nights.

Swindell, a three-time series champion, started the 25-lap A-main from the pole position and controlled it through three stoppages, two reds and a caution, by a using his track position on each restart to control the pace coming back to green.

“Well I know how to make them take off,” said Swindell. “That was good to start up front, this Big Game Treestands Maxim was just rolling. We had a different Parker motor in there tonight that would just take off from a crawl. We finally hit it right, started in the right spot and had a good car to keep us up there.”
