Huset’s Speedway Opens Sunday Night With A Special Event
Sunday night May 4 marks the start of a brand new season at Huset’s Speedway. And it’s a special season at that with a special race for a class of sprint cars.
First of all, 2014 is the 60th anniversary season for the famed track South of Brandon. Huset’s Speedway was founded in 1954. There were, for the record, 2 seasons in the late 1950’s that the track did not run a program.
Other than that, the facility has run racing events non-stop. The track is owned and operated today by the Rubin family of Brandon, South Dakota.
This family has one of the longest tenures of any track operators in the nation. They have been at the helm since 1988.
The special event for Sunday’s opener is for the championship sprints, the class limited to 360 cubic inch engines. The challenge race is paying more money to win than normal.
This is attracting the attention of some top outlaw sprint, the 410 cubic inch class, drivers. Terry McCarl, Mark Dobmeir and Cap Henry have plans of putting in 360 motors and competing.
The outlaw sprints by the way, will go into action on Sunday May11 at the traditional Mother’s day opener.
The May 4 race will feature the championship sprints, street stocks, b-mods and hobby stocks. Race time is 7PM sharp.
