Madden Wins $50,000 Colossal 100 At Charlotte

CONCORD, NC –  Chris Madden won $50,000, passing Jonathan Davenport with four laps to go and pulling away to take the at the Colossal 100 finale at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

As Davenport and Madden navigated lapped traffic, Davenport got hung behind Brett Hamm in turns 3 and 4 on the bottom side. Madden jumped to the high side, the two split Hamm and by turn 2, Madden had grabbed the lead. It was Game Over after that.

“It’s tough to lead in lapped traffic sometimes,” Madden said. “I’ve been in that position many times. We had a great race there without lapped traffic. Hats off to my guys. They’ve done a heck of a job. The competition in this series is so tough.

Madden started fourth and made his way to second within a handful of laps and stalked Davenport for the duration of the 50-lap, caution-free race. Davenport could never shake Madden, though. Through lapper after lapper, the two were even. Madden tried a move low on Davenport a few laps before the deciding pass but couldn’t get it done.

Madden took his second of three XR Super Series features at the Colossal 100, after also winning on Wednesday night. This was Madden’s fourth XR Super Series in nine races during this, the inaugural season for the XRSS.

This is Chris Madden’s eighth Super Late Model win at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, tying him for the all-time lead with Jimmy Owens.
