The Knoxville Nationals brings the top sprint car drivers from around the world to Marion County, and sometimes – they end up staying. Kerry Madsen is originally from Sydney, Australia, but now lives in Knoxville and drives for TK Concrete and owner Tony Vermeer of Pella. Madsen tells KNIA/KRLS News the area is the best place for a sprint car fan to live and work. Madsen finished 17th overall in Thursday night’s qualifier.
