Huset’s $10,000 Winner
Sunday night, September 8th, marked the end of another season of racing at Huset’s Speedway. $10,000 was on the line for the winner of the top class of outlaw sprints and it was the season championship for all classes.
Ian Madsen in car #18 won the 25 lap main event and cashed in on the big money from Dollar Loan Center. Madsen from St. Mary’s, New South Wales, Australia, captured his third win of the season at Huset’s. The other two races he won there payed $5000 each, so it was a profitable year for him at the facility.
Mark Dobmeier came in second and earned $5000. Terry McCarl was third after setting the quick time in qualifying for a season best six times and four consecutive events. Scott Winters drove the Buffalo Wild Wings car to fourth and Dave Glennon in the #5 car held his own for fifth.
Matt Juhl of Esterville, IA drove the #09 to the win in 360 sprint action. It was Juhl’s second Huset’s win of the year.
In the micro sprints, Trey Thesenvitz of Jasper, MN got his first ever win at the track. The 15 year old led all 12 laps and was very excited in victory lane telling the crowd that he grew up watching the races at Huset’s and it was a dream come true to be standing in victory lane.
In the street stocks, it was a huge event for another driver. Shaun Taylor of Sioux Falls had won 20 features in the hobby stock class before moving up to street stocks last year. He finally got the one he’s worked on two seasons long and that was a street stock victory.
Denny Lottman drove the #62 b mod to a first Huset’s win of 2013 and Dustin Gulbrandson is close to having a private parking spot in victory lane for his #6 car as he stopped there for a fifth time this year.
At the conclusion of the night, the track champions were named in all six classes.
