Talladega Runner-Up Leaves Mader Beaming With Joy

TALLADEGA, Ala. — It had been nearly 30 years and more than 10,000 days since Dave Mader III finished in the top five in an ARCA Menards Series race. The last time Mader, 65, earned a top-five finish in ARCA competition was during the 1991 event at Talladega Superspeedway. He finished second to the late Charlie Glotzbach after leading a race-high 68 laps. That opened the bottom for Mader, who squeezed below Sanchez to finish second. The runner-up finish was a landmark moment for Mader, who returned to ARCA competition in 2018 after last racing in the series in 1994. “It’s beyond words,” Mader said when asked what the finish meant to him. I got it (his opportunities) off merit,” Mader said.
