Kasey Kahne Racing's James McFadden Wins Wins The Opener At Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals

“It’s rewarding to rebound like this, especially after the big drama at the last race,” McFadden said. “These guys worked their butts off this week. The long drive here, then the day we had yesterday, then the motor change, just so much has happened. How fast they changed that motor tonight might’ve won us this race.”

“I could hear him,” McFadden recalled. “Obviously, Sheldon is gonna pound it, so I knew getting the start was crucial. I thought if I could short-slide myself and hit the cushion coming off that I would be okay. I’ve never raced here, but it seems pretty narrow and I tried to play that to my advantage as the leader. I wanted to run a little harder, but felt I should protect at the end.”
