CONCORD, N.C.: Australian Sprint Car driver Ian Madsen relocated to the United States with the dream of competing full time on the World of Outlaws circuit.
After some careful consideration, it's a dream that is going to have to wait. At least for the time being.
Madsen was kicking around an all-out assault with the series in 2017, but the KCP Racing team decided against it. He is, however, planning to run in the neighborhood of 50 to 60 races with the series next season.
"Our sponsors are pretty much based in the Des Moines-Knoxville area," Madsen said. "We want to do some races there, so we can race in front of them and they can enjoy it.
"We are definitely looking at upping our World of Outlaws races. You get faster every time you race with those guys, so we want to race with them as much as we can and do a bit of everything."
Madsen's had success against the traveling band in the past. He won his first World of Outlaws event in 2013 at Minnesota's Deer Creek Speedway and had four top-five finishes and 12 top 10s through 2015. This season, Madsen was even stronger in limited action. He only had one top five but recorded 12 top 10 finishes.
