Badlands Motor Speedway Releases Tentative Details For Massive Event

Imagine winning a race, where you don’t win prize money. Rather you win the facility, where you are racing. This unique event will soon become a reality.

Badlands Motor Speedway – formerly known as Husets Speedway – was purchased by the Rubin family in 2015. The new owners invested over $18,000,000 into the facility as countless improvements were made.  The venue hosted everything in 2016 from racing to concerts to motocross to monster trucks.

In 2017 the southeast South Dakota track went on the market for approximately $9,000,000. Since then, various parties have shown an interest in purchasing the state-of-the-art facility, but to date nothing has come to fruition.

From those failed sales comes the idea of a one-of-a-kind race. The event is set for Tuesday, August 13. It will be open to 410 c.i. Winged Sprint Car teams and comes just a few days after the completion of the legendary Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville Iowa. The entry fee is $200,000 per team with a minimum of 18 entries and a maximum of 32. The victor of the event receives everything, including 70 plus acres of land, the track, the buildings, the lights, and the name.

The venue has held concerts.

Second place pays $200,000 with third and fourth currently slated to receive $100,000 each.

The winner of the race will have full rights to do whatever they should so choose with the property and its assets.

The first 12 teams to sign up will also receive a VIP suite for their guests at the event. Each suite will be catered and has a value of $20,000.

In the event that the 18 team minimum is not met, the event will be canceled and entry money will be refunded.

Event organizers have now finalized the details for this event. Registration as well as more information on this historic race can be found online at www.Husets.com.
