Indy 500 Racer Wins at Huset’s Monday
There were two 25 lap main events for Monday night's Labor Day race at Huset's Speedway. One was for the Dirt Late Models and the other was for the Midwest Sprint Touring Series.
The sprint car race was spectacular with two cars locked into a battle for the lead. Going back and forth was Dylan Peterson from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Bryan Clauson from Noblesville, Indiana.
Clauson took the lead for good on lap 18 and went on to victory. This is a racer who was racing in the Indy 500 back on Memorial Day weekend at the start of summer.
Also in the battle up front was Seth Bergman, from Snohomish, Washington. He ended up edging out Peterson for second.
Jody Rosenboom, from Rock Rapids, Iowa, was fourth and Sioux Falls driver Dusty Zomer came from 12th to fifth.
The other 25 lap feature was the Dirt Late Models. These high horsepower, exotic stock cars were won by Gary Brown, Jr. of Brandon, South Dakota.
Then along with all this, history was made and the fans got to witness one of the coolest things ever at a race track. This was when Jayden Larson, from Mankato, Minnesota, won the b mods.
Jayden is only 12 years old. He became the youngest driver in the 61 year history of Huset's Speedway to win a race. All the people from the pits lined up to cheer for him in victory circle along with all the fans in the grandstand. He credited the win to his dad.
Two time track champion Shane Fick, from Brandon, South Dakota, won the micro sprints for a second time this year. Chad Kuhnert, from Valley Springs, South Dakota, raced from outside the fourth row to win the hobby stocks for his third victory of the season
