BRANDON, S.D. — After several failed attempts to sell Huset’s Speedway, track owner Chuck Brennan reportedly has a buyer that sprint car fans will be very familiar with.
KEOLAND News is reporting that Brennan has reached a tentative agreement to sell the Huset’s Speedway property to Tod Quiring, the owner of Minnesota’s Jackson Speedway and the Big Game Motorsports sprint car team.
Brennan told KELOLAND News that he accepted Quiring’s offer and a walkthrough of the property was done last week in advance of the sale. The sale of the facility is expected to close within 30 days.
Quiring has been involved in sprint car racing since 1998, when he became a sponsor of veteran driver Terry McCarl. Ten years later, he became a team owner, a role he maintains with the Big Game Motorsports sprint car driven by Australian Kerry Madsen.
In 2013, Quiring added track owner to his long résumé, acquiring Jackson Motorplex. He also owned and operated the National Sprint League, a touring 410 sprint car series that ran in 2015-’16. Danny Lasoski, driving for Quiring, won both National Sprint League titles.
Brennan has been trying to find a new owner for the track for the last several years. Last year he announced the track would host a special 410 sprint car event where the race winner could receive the race track itself as a prize. That event failed to take place due to a lack of entries.
