Chris Madden took the #44 Rocket Chassis to a dominant victory with the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series at 411 Motor Speedway. It was the team’s second start under the Chris Madden Racing label.

In the first outing as a new team, Madden finished in third place at Cherokee Speedway on Friday. On Saturday he capped that off with his 28th career WoO win with a clean sweep (Fast Time, Heat Win, Feature Win). It was his seventh clean sweep of the season. He chalked up his 19th Fast Time Award.

Four-wide salute to the fans.

Starting on the pole, Madden dropped to second behind Cade Dillard as the two ran door handle-to-door handle. Using the top line, Madden drove around Dillard on lap Six.

Two cautions, one on lap 13 and the other on lap 28, tightened up the field and gave Dillard, Sheppard, and Bailes a shot at challenging the leader, but Madden controlled the restarts to his advantage.

Lapped Traffic

Lapped traffic at the end of the race allowed the front runners to close ranks but Madden was never seriously challenged as he cruised to the checkered flag.

Cory Hedgecock finished with a fourth-place finish and Ross Bailes rounded out the top five.

The next night on Saturday, October 24, they’re off to Missouri’s Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 for one final tune-up before the Can-Am World Finals take center stage on November 5-7.
