August 21, 2012 – Another win at the Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota has Terry McCarl primed for his seventh track championship at the popular oval. This weekend, the Altoona, Iowa driver will try to also pull down a seventh track championship at the Knoxville Raceway. He enters the night a mere eight points behind Davey Heskin in the standings.
TMAC started Sunday night registering quick time at Huset’s. After a fourth place heat finish, he posted outside row three for the main event. “The car was a little tight early on,” he says. “I was a little bit off on the car, but we got stronger. I got to third, and at one point, I actually spun out. I was able to save it really quick, and I only lost one spot.”
A caution let TMAC catch his breath in his #24. “There was a yellow, and I was able to get back to third behind (Jody) Rosenboom and Justin Henderson,” he says. “I was able to get Justin coming hard off of turn four.”
Next up, was the leader. “Then I was able to get by Rosenboom late in the race,” says TMAC. “We were able to get around there really well. The car was working well. We were able to get by Jody with two laps to go, and off we went.”
It was a tougher night for son, Austin. “It was kind of a disappointing for Austin,” says TMAC. “He was fourth quick, and got up into the cushion and blew a tire in the heat race. You can’t do any work during the heats, so he was done and had to start at the back of the feature.”
Still the McCarl’s stand 1-2 on top of the Huset’s Speedway point standings. “He started last, and worked his way to seventh,” says TMAC. “It was disappointing on that end, but on the other side, he took over second place in points. So that is kind of cool.”

This Month in TMAC History!
TMAC had a win on August 26, 2001 at the Huset’s. He beat Chad Meyer, Gregg Bakker, Kenny Hansen, Justin Henderson and his mechanic Glen Freeland (DNF) that night. On the same date in 2005, he had a great weekend at the Grays Harbor Raceway Park in Elma, Washington. He finished third after starting 11th with the World of Outlaws, following Steve Kinser and Jonathan Allard. That locked him into the next night’s event, in which he finished fourth. As a prelude to the WoO shows, he won in Paul Silva’s #57 besting Roger Crockett in 360 NST action.
