BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 18, 2020) – Shane Golobic and Adam Gullion emerged victorious on Friday evening at Huset’s Speedway, which hosted the opening round of the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores.

A stout field of 45 360ci winged sprint cars and 33 RaceSaver sprints invaded the high-banked oval for the two-day event, which concludes on Saturday with the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series main event winner claiming $10,000 and the RaceSaver sprints winner earning $1,000.

Golobic capped a thrilling 25-lap, $5,000-to-win feature sanctioned by the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series on Friday by narrowly edging Jack Dover by .254 of a second.

“We made it too close there at the end,” Golobic said. “This place is awesome. I really enjoy racing here.”

Lynton Jeffrey led the first seven laps of the main event before Golobic found the high groove. He passed Dover for second on Lap 6 and two laps later Golobic drove around Jeffrey, who had just entered traffic.

Several laps later the track began to take some rubber toward the middle of the oval and that allowed Dover, who passed Jeffrey for second on Lap 18, to close within four tenths of a second on Golobic before the lone caution came out on Lap 19.

Despite taking the drivers out of traffic for the restart, Dover stayed within a few car lengths of Golobic during the final seven-lap shootout. Golobic began to reach traffic on the final lap and Dover made a last-ditch effort to drive around Golobic in turns three and four. The drivers were side by side in turn four, but Golobic was firmly in the rubber and that propelled him to the victory.

Dover’s runner-up result snapped a two-race winning streak at Huset’s Speedway. Austin McCarl charged from 10th to third place with Eric Lutz finishing fourth and Jeffrey fifth.

Skylar Prochaska and Shane Golobic set quick time in their qualifying groups. Dover, Jeffrey, Golobic and Carson McCarl each won a heat race. Brant O’Banion was the C Main winner and Lee Grosz claimed the B Main.

Gullion led the distance of the 20-lap RaceSaver sprints A Main to score his first career win at Huset’s Speedway, edging Dusty Ballenger by 0.336 of a second.

“We’ve only been here once before and we ran second,” Gullion said. “It feels really good to get the win. This is a holy grail place to race.”

Toby Chapman rallied from ninth to third. Stu Snyder placed fourth and Shon Pointer ended fifth.

Jesse Lindberg, Chapman, Gullion and Pointer were the heat race winners and Monty Ferriera won the B Main.

Saturday’s event is scheduled to begin with hot laps at 7 p.m. The front gates open at 4 p.m.

There are grandstand tickets available. Adult tickets are $28. Children 12-years-old and younger get in free. Pit passes are $35 for adults and $25 for children.
