Badlands Speedway Shuts Down

What was once the legendary Huset’s Speedway of over 60 years, has gone thru some drastic changes since being purchased by the current owner. The first of which was changing it’s name to Badlands Motor Speedway (BMS).

The track could now be called Quietlands, because it has just been silenced. The official announcement came out on Thursday (May 18) that all racing has been suspended.

There were six events scheduled for 2017, including the World of Outlaws. And a full schedule was promised for 2018.

The track has made the statement,

BMS has received an onslaught of negativity, attacks on our social media forcing us to deactivate them, and threats of boycotts on our track from fans, race teams, officials, vendors, sponsors and staff.

At this time we will be suspending racing at Badlands Motor Speedway until we can complete our search for a new ownership group to take over.

If anyone is interested in purchasing the speedway, the sale price has been drastically reduced. It can be yours for $7.5 million, down from the original asking price of $12 million.

They say this about half of what they have put into the facility. You can read more on the BMS statement.
