Madden Wins $5,000 Independence Day Shootout

July 5

After setting fast time on several occasions and leading several races in 2003, Chris Madden finally went to victory lane after winning the Independence Day Shootout this past Saturday night.

Madden started on the pole and led every lap for his second Cherokee Speedway win and first of 2003. Ricky Weeks got by Jeremy Clements early in the race for second but couldn't mount a serious challenge for the lead. Some of the drivers who were either involved in cautions, pitted or fell out include Kelly Thacker, Gary Mabe, Jeff Cooke, Mike Chilton, Tim Headen, Billy Hicks and Jimmy McCormick.

Madden, driving the Barry Wright house car, has now set fast time in all four events when time trials were held in 2003.

Rambo won the late model sportsman featre in his first attempt in the division. Rambo led every lap driving Jim Wilson's black #13. Lee Cooper finished second and was followed by Kelly Fegter, Michael Williams and Corky Fleming in the top five.

Tony Adair won the wild and action packed super stock four cylinder feature by leading only the last lap.
Alan Sisk took the lead from Travis Robbins only to blow a tire about as soon as he took the lead. This gave the lead to Bruce Absher who also slowed about as soon as he got the lead. Adair then took over the lead and went on to take the checkered flag ahead of Steve McIntyre and Russell Falls. Jamie Mattison finished in fourth and Greg Davis, who battled Robbins for the lead early, finished in fifth.

Monty Davis won the street stock four cylinder race once again. Davis started on the pole alongside second place finisher Ricky Fox. Greg Jenkins was third followed by Brian Harris and Josh Wilkerson.
