Tatnell became the first-ever Australian champion by winning the Casey’s 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig title by a mere three points over 2021 track champion Justin Henderson.

Spencer Bayston, Michael ‘Buddy’ Kofoid and Carson Macedo posted wins prior to Sheldon Haudenschild taking the $100,000 top prize for winning the inaugural Huset’s High Banks Nationals thanks to a last-lap pass. It marked the biggest paying sports event in South Dakota history.
