McCarl continues domination of Huset's Speedway

By Shawn Neisteadt

(June 1, 2003-Sioux Falls, SD)  Mother Nature sprinkled on Huset's Speedway for a good portion of Sunday night's action. But the rain wouldn't dampen the spirit of the fans or the racing action on the track.

Lynton Jeffery took the lead of the Interstate Auto Center Outlaw Sprint feature at the start of the 25 lap event.  The red waved with one lap counted for Dusty Ballenger.  Ballenger tagged the wall and flipped wildly down the backstretch.  The car was destroyed but Ballenger walked away unharmed.  During the red, Terry McCarl elected to change gears in his #24.  The change took too long and McCarl was sent to the back for the restart.

One lap after the restart, Brad Pake took second from Jim Smith.  On the fourth lap, Justin Henderson moved into third and Micah Schliemann grabbed fourth as they passed Smith in turn one. Henderson then took second from Pake one lap later.  Henderson then began to real in Jeffery, but bobbled on the tenth lap and spun the #R19 in turn one.

On the ensuing restart, Gary DeWall moved into the top five. DeWall then took fourth from Gregg Bakker on lap 12.  One lap later, McCarl moved into the top five as he passed Bakker as they raced off four.  McCarl then set his sights on DeWall and took fourth from DeWall on lap 16 and then took third from Schliemann on lap 17.

Brad Pake led his first ever laps at Huset's after he took the lead from Jeffery on the exit of turn four on the seventeenth lap.  On lap 19, Jeffery fell to third as McCarl moved into second.  McCarl then moved into the lead on lap 23 as he dove under Pake in turn three and drove off four as the leader. McCarl went on to take his fourth in a row.  Pake had his best ever Huset's finish with second and Jeffery was third. Schliemann took fourth and DeWall rounded out the top five. Henderson and Smith won the heat races.

Brent Vonk took the early lead of the of the Lewis/Pepsi/Dr. Pepper 360 sprint feature.  With one lap counted the red flag waved over the speedway.  Dusty Zomer broke his car loose in turn two and spun.  Mitch Runge, Randy Droescher, Gordy Vogelaar and Chase Wilson all piled into the accident and Zomer's #1 rolled over.  All drivers were unharmed.

Lyle Howey was the driver on the charge as the race resumed. Howey restarted fifth and was running third on lap three.  Howey then took second from Ryan Bickett on lap 5.  Howey continued his charge on lap 7 when he overtook the lead from Vonk.  Also on the move was Jake Peters.  Peters went around Bickett on lap 8 for the third spot.  Peters then moved around Vonk for second on lap nine.  The leaders ran into traffic on lap ten.  One lap later, Johnn Cressman and Vonk touched as they came off turn four.  Vonk was able to continue but Cressman's #56 was damaged and retired for the night.

One lap after the restart, Dusty Ballenger moved into fourth and then took third from Vonk on lap 13.  Also on lap 13, Peters took the lead from Howey in turn four.  Vonk battled back and raced Ballenger for third until Vonk slowed and dropped out on the white flag lap.  Peters held on to take his second win of the year followed by Howey.  Ballenger was third and Butch Hanssen was fourth.  Brock Dump rounded out the top five. Peters, Hanssen and Bickett won the heat races.

David Kruger was second in the Late Model Stock Car feature when he spun on lap seven.  The incident collected several cars as the speedway turned into a log jam.  Rick Goth was the race leader and would hold off a hard charging Gary Brown for the win. Brown was able to get door to door on the white flag lap, but Goth was able to get a better drive through the corner to go on for the win.  Brown was second and Chad Overgaard was third. Fourth went to Matt Steuerwald and Don Bickett rounded out the top five.  Bickett and Darrin Korthals won the heat races.

Scott Borkowski led all 12 laps of the Hobby Stock feature for his first career Huset's win.  Colter Deutsch was second and third went to Jon DeBoer.  Mike McGillivray finished fourth and Nick Bahr came from ninth to take fourth.  DeBoer, McGillivray and Steve Eliason won the heat races.
