McFadden Captures Fourth World Series Title
KWINANA BEACH, W.A. (February 25, 2018) – Monte Motorsport’s James McFadden has clinched his fourth QSS World Series Sprintcars crown by claiming Revolution Racegear Quicktime in qualifying for the series Grand Final at the Perth Motorplex.
With a lap of 13.867, McFadden edged out Australian Sprintcar Champion Kerry Madsen to claim the maximum points and create and unassailable championship lead to clinch the title.
“During my first lap I almost spun out but the second lap we got it all worked out thankfully.”
“It’s great to win this series again. I have just got to thank the Monte Motorsport guys. It’s a long season doing this, we have had our ups and downs but to get the win last night was unreal and to get quick-time just then was pretty cool so now I have the Championship and I really looking forward to just ripping it tonight and hopefully put a show on” added the now four times World Series Sprintcars Champion.
“I’m really proud of this team and Milwaukee for sticking with us. James, and Buzzy have done a great job and I just so proud of my boys” added Team Owner Luch Monte.
McFadden went on to start from the second row of the A Main, but came to grief in lap 14 while pursuing Kerry Madsen for the lead, when South Australian Lisa Walker rode the wall in turn one leaving the leading pair nowhere to go.
Both Madsen and McFadden retired from the race, creating the opportunity for Jason Kendrick to claim his first ever WSS round win.
