The Krikke Motorsport team and driver Kerry Madsen have celebrated a successful 2018/19 season.

The team claimed its second consecutive WA Title at Perth Motorplex, before collecting another three feature race wins.

They then picked up the South Australian Title at Whyalla's Westline Speedway.

Contesting 23 nights of competition in total, the team earned 13 podium finishes from 20 completed feature races.

The team scored four pole position starts throughout each of their contested feature races, 12 top-three qualifications, and six heat race wins.

Following all 10 World Series Sprintcar rounds, Madsen finished second overall in the championship point standings.

He finished in the top five on nine occasions, and took out the second round at Mount Gambier's Borderline Speedway.

Krikke Motorsport was the most awarded team at the World Series Sprintcars presentation dinner, picking up Best Championship Team, Best Presented Car and Crew, Most Quick Times, and Most Shootout Wins.

Madsen, who was contracted to the series for the first time in his career, was named Rookie of the Year.

"We definitely had our challenges, but it was one of those seasons where everyone did," Krikke Motorsport team manager Ryan Krikke said.

"The season saw a really good spread of different winners, particularly in the bigger races.

"Overall, it was a really strong and enjoyable season for us with Kerry at the helm. The guys did a great job in making sure the car was fast at each race meeting.

"Preparation for next season has already begun and we're very excited to continue our team's legacy in what will be our 40th season of competition."

In round two of the Maddington Toyota Triple Crown at Perth Motorplex, Daniel Harding reached the chequered flag ahead of Andrew Priolo and AJ Nash.

Myalup's Brad and Jamie Maiolo finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Returning to Perth Motorplex for the final round on April 13, Kaiden Manders won the feature race with Mitchell Wormall and Taylor Milling not too far behind.

Harding did enough to claim the overall title from Jason Kendrick, Manders, and Jamie Maiolo.
