On a night when Huset’s Speedway honored its past champions, young Chad Meyer showed that he could be one of the top outlaw drivers of the future at the track. Meyer snatched the lead from fellow front row starter Terry Reilly on lap seven and went on to win his first outlaw sprint feature at the track at the annual Hall of Fame night Sunday night. After taking the point, Meyer looked to have the field covered until Huset’s all time feature win leader Terry McCarl came from the third row and began to close in on the leader the last half of the 25-lap event. A caution with six laps to go when Mark Toews and Randy Rosenboom tangled in the fourth turn put McCarl right behind Meyer on the restart, showing that if Meyer was going to win tonight, he would definitely earn it. And earn it he did. As McCarl shot low on the restart, Meyer maintained his high line and quickly pulled away as McCarl was never able to make up the difference the final laps. At the finish it was Meyer taking the win by half a straightaway over McCarl with Don Droud taking third ahead of Chad Radel, Terry Reilly, Kenny Hansen and Gary DeWall.

Dusty Ballenger ended a streak of bad luck at the track as he captured his third 360 sprint feature win of the year. Ballenger grabbed the lead from Troy Vink on lap five and then held off Justin Henderson in the final laps for the win. Butch Hanssen had another good run through the field as he came from ninth to take third followed by 12th place starter Terry Reilly and Vink.

Ray Feltman came from the 14th starting spot to take the lead from Don Bickett with five laps to go and went on to win his fifth late model stock car feature of the year. Ray Sveeggen worked his way up from ninth to take second ahead of Bickett, Jim Baartman and Lee Schlumbohm.
