JAMES McFadden's growing international reputation has received a shot in the arm after the Warrnambool-based driver added another World of Outlaws crown to his decorated racing resume.
The two-time South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic champion claimed the chequered flag in his 100th start on the famous series, beating Kasey Kahne Racing teammate Brad Sweet at the Indiana-based Kokomo Speedway on Friday.
McFadden banked $USD10,000 in the victory.
"I'm just pumped to be here right now, man," the 31-year-old said post-race.
"I gotta thank Kasey (Kahne) and this whole KKR team. It's a pleasure to drive this car. I'm glad I can do it justice and put in victory lane.
"It's good to get one on that NAPA car. (Sweet) has been laying it on us, so hopefully we can get on our little roll now."
McFadden said the track was challenging.
"The track was surprisingly tough, it just changed around a bunch," he said.
"We got through lap traffic really well, and I think that was big."
The World of Outlaws series will next travel to Lawton Speedway in Oklahoma on April 17.
