Ultimate Racing Series:
Madden Claims "Modoc 100" In Series Opener
MODOC, S.C. - Mar. 5. Not even
threatening rain showers could stop Chris Madden from again reaching the "Modoc 100" victory lane as the Graycourt,
South Carolina veteran raced to the series opening win on the new Ultimate Late Model Racing Series.
Madden won the Inaugural Modoc 100 back in 2005. While this payday
was not as large as that one, worth $10,000, the victory was just as sweet. Madden passed both Casey Roberts and Chris Ferguson late in the race for his first
win of the young year.
"We're back shining like we used to. We struggled a bit last year,
but this is a great start back in the right direction," exclaimed Madden in victory lane. "The last couple laps we got (Ferguson) in one corner and got Casey in the other on
the outside. About halfway through the race I passed a couple cars on the outside. I knew the top was there, they
got slowed up by the traffic and we took advantage".
