MADDEN SET TO RETURN TO TEAM ZERO!
5, 2019 - Scott Bloomquist Racing returned to action
nearly a month ago but ultimately made the decision to take several
weeks off to continue to work on Scott Bloomquist’s physical
therapy. The break in action also allowed the team to focus on getting
their “Ducks in a Row” for the remaining 2019 schedule.
During the break, the past met the future when Chris Madden and
the SBR team established a plan to work together moving forward.
Chris, a former Team Zero driver is set to return to the Bloomquist
corner and that journey will begin next weekend when the #0 piloted
by Scott Bloomquist returns to racing at Tri-City Speedway with
the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
Madden will be joining the team, turning wrenches
for Bloomquist through the Tri-City and Wheatland weekend and is
slated to pilot a 2nd SBR entry at the Silver Dollar Nationals on
July 18th-20th. The team plans to have a 2nd entry at several other
major events on the 2019 schedule. That alliance is set to continue
until Madden is able to have new Bloomquist cars added to his own
fleet where he plans to start back up with his own Super Late Model
operation very soon and remain in the Team Zero network.
“I had many years of success with these cars
and those were some of the best and most successful years I’ve
had in my career. It is almost like returning home and I’m
excited at the opportunity to drive for SBR and get back in these
cars with my own operation soon” Said Chris Madden.
Madden is leaping into the operation in just over
a week and will support Bloomquist and the #0 team as the Hall of
Fame driver returns back to racing, a move that everyone involved
feels will have a very positive impact on the entire organization.
“As odd as it may sound we are still a NEW organization,
we have some NEW crew members and some NEW ways of doing things.
Having Chris (Madden) along for the ride for awhile is going to
be great for all of those people but it is also going to be great
for Scott to return while having that type of veteran driver support.”
Said Cody Sommer, President of Scott Bloomquist Racing.
MADDEN & HARROD HOOK
UP FOR CHEROKEE SPECIAL
15, 2019 - Only days removed from splitting with
Skyline Motorsports, Chris Madden jumped behind the wheel of a #27
Longhorn Chassis for car owner Larry Harrod on Friday evening, June
14 at the nearby Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina. The
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series rolled into town to preside over
the annual running of the 'Grassy Smith Memorial' and a $12,000
top prize was up for grabs. Chris knocked down the ninth fastest
time in Group A during qualifying prior to placing sixth in his
stacked heat race. Following a second place run in the B-Main, "Smokey"
was officially placed seventeenth in the final finishing order of
the 50-lap main event. Full results from last night at Cherokee
Speedway can be accessed online at www.lucasdirt.com.
MADDEN OUT WITH BRUENING-BACKED

of 2019, but will wheel a #27 Longhorn Chassis for car owner Larry
Harrod later tonight, June 14 in a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
showdown at the nearby Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina.
The winner of the annual 'Grassy Smith Memorial' will receive $12,000
