The highlight of the weekend for the Australian drivers competing over in America was without a doubt Kerry Madsen driving to victory in the Knoxville 360 Sprintcar Nationals and in the process making it back-to-back Australian wins.

A total of six Australian drivers are currently busy preparing for this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Sprintcar Nationals at Knoxville Raceway, and we here at Totally Speedway have gone about to preview the chances of the half-a-dozen drivers that are hoping to make it back-to-back Australian Knoxville 360 Sprintcar Nationals wins.

This past week has been a quite busy one for the Australian racers when it comes to America, following Lynton Jeffrey claiming the spoils at Knoxville Raceway on the weekend and James McFadden currently racing the clock to get over to America to defend his Knoxville 360 Sprintcar Nationals crown.

The weekend just past for the Australians in America saw numerous drivers perform double duties across 410 and 360 Sprintcars at Knoxville Raceway, while Ian Madsen made his first appearance with a new team.

When it comes to Sprintcars, they are often referred to as the Formula 1 of speedway. The connections between Formula 1 and speedway are a lot closer than most people think and recently an ex-Formula 1 driver has come out about his desire to one day go Sprintcar racing.

As the saying goes, a week is a long time in speedway. When it came to our Australian drivers, the headlining story to come out of America over the past week was the news that Ian Madsen and the KCP Racing team had, effective immediately, parted ways.
