Madden to Pilot Team’s Backup Car
KINGSTON, Ga. (07/06/20) – As he prepares for a run at an inaugural Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series championship, Tyler Millwood is excited to announce that he’ll be joined on the tour by teammate, Chris Madden.
“This is an exciting time for Millwood Motorsports to have Chris [Madden] joining us in an assault on the Southern Nationals tour. We have a long-going relationship with Madden. We support his career decisions, and we greatly appreciate his longtime support of our race team,” Millwood commented. “With his expertise and help we think it can help us progress to the next level with our race team.”
Both Millwood Motorsports cars will carry primary sponsorship from Millwood Plumbing, Machine Construction and Competition Race Equipment, while Madden’s No. 44 entry will additionally have title sponsorship from Drydene Engine Oils and Greases.
The teammates will be utilizing XR1 Rocket Chassis with support from Mark Richards. Tyler will be running a Durham Ford Racing Engines, while Chris will be utilizing a Clements Ford Racing Engine.
“The Millwood family have gone above and beyond to support me in my racing endeavors over the past several years, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to go and race for them,” said Madden, who is a five-time Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Champion and the winningest driver in the 16-year history of the miniseries with 24 triumphs. “It also means a lot to me to be able to go out there for the next two weeks and assist Tyler as he looks to better his racing career.”
Millwood enters the 2020 edition of the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals with momentum in his corner after picking up his first win of the 2020 season on Saturday night at Dixie Speedway (Woodstock, Georgia). Millwood ran second early in the race before inheriting the lead, when front runner Michael Page broke. From there Tyler cruised to the $3,000 triumph in his familiar No. 31.
“I was pacing myself back in the second spot around the halfway mark when he [Michael Page] broke. That gave us the lead, but I think we would’ve had a good chance to win even if he hadn’t broke. You have to be there to capitalize on those situations, and we did just that,” Millwood shared. “That win definitely gives us a much-needed shot in the arm heading into this busy stretch of racing.”
