The legendary bullring dirt track returns with a thriller and a packed house in the grand re-opening!
Huset’s Speedway has not seen a green flag since 2017. Tonight, that drought comes to an end with open throttle sprint car action around the 1/4-mile oval in Brandon, South Dakota.

Earlier this year, it looked like Huset’s was heading to the graveyard. That won’t be the case.
They’re ripping the band-aid clear off. Tonight’s season opener will see a $20,000 to win show featuring 410 dirt sprint cars.
The deal was recently finalized on the new ownership and the new management had only three weeks to prepare for this event. Tod Quiring operates the nearby Jackson Motorplex and he is also the new owner of Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota.
Amid the pandemic, the Jackson Motorplex in nearby Minnesota, is unable to host large gatherings. As the owner of both tracks, events that are previously scheduled for Jackson have been moved to Huset’s Speedway.

Feature – Report
Kerry Madsen and Cory Eliason set the front row for the main event. The cushion is right against the outside wall and the inside lane remains full of moisture. 35 laps of sliders are up next…
Green flag, Madsen gets the jump and he leads into turn one. Eliason is all over his bumper off turn two.
Lap 2, Madsen heads for the bottom. Eliason bounces off the cushion and clears him off turn two! Slow car behind them and the caution is out. Eliason will have to pass him again as we go back to the previous lap.
Green, Madsen leads as Eliason bobbles at the launch. Dominic Scelzi is looking for 2nd as they battle around the bullring.
Lap 8, the leader has a 10 car length gap but he works heavy lap traffic.
Lap 11, Madsen tags the wall off turn four! Eliason takes the lead as Madsen falls to 3rd.
Lap 14, Scelzi and Madsen split lap traffic and Madsen pops out with 2nd.
Lap 16, Madsen has climbed to the bumper of Eliason for the race lead. Madsen drives right by on the bottom as Eliason bangs the cushion.
Lap 21, the cushion is right on the wall. Eliason bounces right off the wall or the cushion, take your pick.
Lap 22, Eliason bangs the cushion once again. He pulls even with Madsen in the process and clears him with highside momentum off turn two.
Lap 30, Eliason leads Scelzi by 1 second.
Cory Eliason wins at Huset’s Speedway!
