BRANDON, SD (May 22, 2023) – Huset’s Speedway will host the richest paying event in World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series history during the Huset’s High Bank Nationals, June 21-24, featuring a $750,000 overall purse and $250,000-to-win finale.

During the four nights of racing, the first three nights (Wednesday-Friday, June 21-23) will see $20,000-to-win preliminary Features before Saturday’s main event (June 24) – a $250,000 payout, which at the time will be the biggest in Winged Sprint Car competition.

The runner up during each preliminary night secures $10,000. Fifth place captures $5,000, and 10th place $2,500, with each preliminary night offering $1,200 to start. The finale showcases $50,000 for finishing in second place, $25,000 for third, $15,000 for fourth and $10,000 for fifth. The main event on Saturday pays $5,000 to start.

Last year, the High Bank Nationals saw four different winners in four races with Spencer Bayston, Michael “Buddy” Kofoid and Carson Macedo winning the preliminary nights and Sheldon Haudenschild scoring the inaugural Nationals win.
