Kasey Kahne Racing’s Saldana Takes Top-Five in Down Under Battle
Team Mopar and Kasey Kahne Racing World of Outlaws Sprint car driver Joey Saldana continued his oversees adventures, as the “Brownsburg Bullet” scored a fourth-place finish in the Valvoline Australian Grand Prix, held at Parramatta City Raceway in Sydney, Australia. The Top-five finish follows Saldana’s recent win at the International Sprint Car Classic in New Zealand.
After starting in the middle of a field that included fellow World of Outlaws drivers Steve Kinser and Donny Schatz, Saldana worked his way forward to claim a Top-five spot. World of Outlaws drivers from the U.S. claimed three of the top four spots in the event.
