Huset's Badlands Motor Speedway

Old Huset’s Speedway

Huset’s Speedway will become Badlands Motor Speedway at the beginning of the 2016 season. Since opening in the spring of 1954, the speedway has become one of the premier sprint car tracks in the country. It’s one of the few tracks remaining that hosts a winged 410-sprint car event each week, and it has hosted many big names in the racing world over the last several years.

Huset’s was a primitive track when it opened, with no grandstands and no lights. Fans did the best they could to get comfortable on the hill, and they battled the dust as all races were run during the day.

The crowds were good and the car count was solid early in the speedway’s first season, but the incredible amount of dust began to take its toll on fan participation. The speedway was in trouble at the end of the first season, but Huset added lights and reconfigured the racing surface. The Speedway is a tiny bull-ring oval, measuring just 3/8 mile.

Big Payouts, National TV

Today, Huset’s is an annual stop for the World of Outlaws, has been host to USAC midget races and All-Star Circuit of Champions events. And is now on the National Sprint League schedule. Badlands Motor Speedway owner Chuck Brennan announced the payout schedule for the 2016 racing season at a news conference Sunday. The weekly purse is $50,000, the largest of any short track in the country.

The special events at the track next year will include the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, National Sprint League, Monster X truck show and the national finals for the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pull series. Badlands Motor Speedway will play host to five major music concerts throughout the summer at its new outdoor concert venue…the largest such venue in the region.
