BRANDON, S.D. (May 8, 2023) – It is finally race week at Huset’s Speedway, which kicks off the season this Sunday with the Mother’s Day Opener presented by Northwest Tire Inc.
All three regular divisions – the Cressman Sanitation 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars, the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series and the Nordstrom’s Automotive Late Model Street Stocks – will be in action.
The gates open at 4:30 p.m. with racing at 7:30 p.m.
The Cressman Sanitation 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars division pays at least $5,000 to win during each main event this season. The runner up will garner $4,000 and the third-place finisher earns $3,000.
As a reminder, the division champion at Huset’s Speedway will pocket $12,000 with second place scoring $8,000 and third place garnering $6,000. The top 15 in points who are eligible will receive points fund money.
Drivers accumulate points for qualifying, heat races and the main event during each race. A driver can miss one points race throughout the season and remain eligible for the points fund.
