Swainsboro, GA – May 5, 2012 –
Chris Madden of Gray Court, S.C., survived a mid-race challenge from Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., and drive on to capture Saturday night’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series ‘Pine Tree 50’ at Swainsboro Raceway.
“We were a little tight for our heat race, but we freed it up for the feature and I think we had a great race car,” said Madden, who became the 10th different winner in 11 WoO LMS A-Mains this season. “We were able to get the lead and hold our own for the 50 laps.”
Chris raced off the outside pole to lead the entire distance, but it was a timely caution flag on lap 28 that allowed him to stay at the head of the pack. The remainder of the event belonged to Madden, who kept his Weld Racing Wide-5 XL wheel equipped Team Zero by Bloomquist machine firmly in command following two more caution periods. He crossed the finish line 1.826 seconds ahead of 2nd
