MADDEN RETURNS TO BWRC HOUSE CAR IN 2018!
December 2, 2017
- Gray Court, South Carolina star Chris Madden and Hall of Fame car builder Barry Wright jointly confirmed today that they will team up for the 2018 racing season. Chris will return to pilot the BWRC House Car next year, as he previously did in 2002, 2003, and portions of the 2005-2006 seasons. The newly-formed team will most likely follow a "pick and choose" type of schedule in 2018, but a return to the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series tour for Madden has not been completely ruled out.

Chris' familiar #44 will adorn the doors of the BWRC cars, which will be powered by Clements engines and sport sponsorship from Century Plastics, Millwood Plumbing, Henderson Amusement, Harrod Logging, Davis Diesel Service, and C&H Paving. The potent cars will be housed and maintained at BWRC by Barry Wright, Lance Wright, and a soon-to-be-hired crewman. More information will be posted - as news warrants - online at www.ChrisMadden44.com! (Chad Wells Photography)
