"SMOKEY" WINS $10,000 ELDORA PRELIM; FIFTH IN DIRT LATE MODEL DREAM!
(June 10, 2018)
Chris Madden Racing (CMR) rolled into the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 7-9 for the annual running of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' With Thursday's $5,000 to win prelim pushed back to Friday afternoon due to rain, Chris Madden started off his weekend by winning his heat race and leading the first twenty circuits in the 25-lap daytime affair until he hit the wall in turn one, which relegated him to a disappointing twenty-first place performance. Things turned around in a big way later that evening, as Chris ran second in his heat race prior to leading all 25 laps en route to a commanding $10,000 triumph over Shane Clanton, Bobby Pierce, Hudson O'Neal, and Ricky Weiss!

The Gray Court, South Carolina star then placed second in his stacked heat race on Saturday, which enabled him to roll off from the inside of the fifth row in the $100,000 to win 'Dirt Late Model Dream' headliner. Chris had then blasted up into the third position on lap 33 before a flat right rear tire sent him pitside. "Smokey" then battled back from the rear of the stellar field and drove all the way back up to fifth in the 100-lapper to trail only victor Scott Bloomquist, Dale McDowell, Jonathan Davenport, and Bobby Pierce!

(December 2, 2017)
Gray Court, South Carolina star Chris Madden and Hall of Fame car builder Barry Wright jointly confirmed today that they will team up for the 2018 racing season. Chris will return to pilot the BWRC House Car next year, as he previously did in 2002, 2003, and portions of the 2005-2006 seasons. The newly-formed team will most likely follow a "pick and choose" type of schedule in 2018, but a return to the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series tour for Madden has not been completely ruled out.

Chris' familiar #44 will adorn the doors of the BWRC cars, which will be powered by Clements engines and sport sponsorship from Century Plastics, Millwood Plumbing, Henderson Amusement, Harrod Logging, Davis Diesel Service, and C&H Paving. The potent cars will be housed and maintained at BWRC by Barry Wright, Lance Wright, and a soon-to-be-hired crewman. More information will be posted - as news warrants - online at www.ChrisMadden44.com! (Chad Wells Photography)
