James McFadden and Brad Sweet have moved past their altercation at Salina Highbanks Speedway. During the Kubota High Limit Racing event, Sweet was in pursuit of McFadden, who had taken an early lead. However, a misjudged move by Sweet resulted in a collision with McFadden, sending him airborne and flipping through the turn-four runoff area. Fortunately, McFadden emerged unscathed, though he was credited with a 24th-place finish.

Despite the incident, Sweet managed to hold off Tyler Courtney and secure his second-straight series win. This turn of events highlights the intensity and unpredictability of racing, where drivers must navigate both the competition and the challenges of the track.

“First thing I want to say is, sorry to James McFadden there,” Sweet told High Limit pit reporter Tony Laporta in victory lane. “You never like to run into a guy racing for the lead. I had a good car. Honestly I misjudged him because I flat ran into him. Apologies to him. I never want to race that way, especially with a good friend on mine. NAPA Auto Parts Car was really good. I was honestly biding my time with James. The lines through lapped traffic were tricky.”
