November 22, 2021 - "Smokey" Chris Madden wrapped up his 2021 racing season in a big way on Sunday, November 21 by collecting his seventh career 'Blue/Gray 100' victory at the nearby Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina!

Rounding out the top five behind $10,000 winner Madden and runner-up Overton were third place finisher Devin Moran, fourth place runner Carson Ferguson, and fifth place Michael Brown.
