All Star Circuit of Champions to headline $20,000-to-win Huset’s Speedway Grand Reopening on Sunday, August 2
BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 14, 2020) - Set idle in the foothills of Brandon, South Dakota, no longer, the legendary highbanks of Huset’s Speedway will officially kick on the light switches in 2020 and will celebrate a grand reopening featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 on Sunday, August 2. A surefire showstopper in itself, the C&B Operations presents the Huset’s Grand Reopening, with some added help from Folkens Brothers Trucking, will award a $20,000 top prize, while also awarding a minimum of $1,000 to each main event starter.
Effective immediately, Tod Quiring is now the new owner of Huset’s Speedway and he will help propel the state-of-the-art facility back into the All Star scene for the first time since 2014. St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu is the most recent competitor to find victory lane at ‘the official race track of summer,’ taking command on lap 12 and never looking back.
In total, the traveling All Stars have made 14 appearances at the southeast South Dakota venue with the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer owning the most success with three victories. Remodeled in 2015, Huset’s Speedway was purchased and operated under the name Badlands Motor Speedway before closing its doors in 2018.
The Brandon visit adds a fourth date to the already established mid-summer Midwest swing for the All Star Circuit of Champions. The Series will visit Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Wisconsin, for the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race on Thursday, July 30, followed by stops to 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday, July 31, and Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, August 1. All events considered, All Star Circuit of Champions competitors will battle for a total weekend winner’s share equaling $56,000.
In addition to an elite group of full-time All Star Circuit of Champions competitors including two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, Tony Stewart, will join-in on the action at Huset’s Speedway, as well as the 2020 Indiana Midget Week and Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek champion, Kyle Larson.
“We are honored to be a part of the grand re-opening of Huset’s Speedway,” said Tony Stewart, owner of the All Stars. “There have been rumors swirling around this facility for years and it’s pretty cool to know that there will be sprint cars back in just a few weeks. It’s obviously one of the nicest facilities in the world. Thank you to Tod and Doug for their hard work putting this together and for the call to be a part of it. What a weekend. We start in Plymouth (WI) on Thursday with the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation race, continue to 34 Raceway on Friday, Knoxville Saturday and Huset’s Sunday. We can’t wait.”
Additional news and notes pertaining to the C&B Operations presents the Huset’s Grand Reopening will be posted in the near-future. Fans are encouraged to stay alert online for continuing details. For those who can not make the journey to Brandon, South Dakota, FloRacing, the official media partner of the All Star Circuit of Champions, will be on hand to capture a live broadcast.
