   Marc Madison is proof positive that nice guys don't have to finish last. The fact is that since this driver from Irving, Texas started driving race cars back in 1975 he's never finished a feature in last place. Sure, there were times when engine failure forced him to the pits and times when his aggressive driving style earned him an unscheduled ride on the roof or flat tires. He has seen victory in everything from Go-Cars to Figure "8" Cars, to Modifieds, to winged Sprint Cars, and Stock Cars. till to talk to him, one could hardly imagine that Marc Madison is considered one of the most aggressive and fearless drivers to come out of Texas. He always has time during a busy race schedule to sign an autograph, talk to a fan or pose for a picture. Since he first climbed behind the wheel of a Figure "8" race car at the age of 18, Madison has been a winner. He won the second race he entered at Sportsdrome Speedway, Grand Prairie, Texas, and since has finished in the Top Ten in every class he has contested in for a full race season, accumulating over 200 victories.
