Driver Wins for First Time in Top Class at Huset’s
Ryan Bickett's racing career dates back to the days of racing hobby stocks. As he progressed to sprint cars, he found great success including track championships at both I-90 and Huset's Speedway.
But that was in the 360 class. Now he adds another milestone with a first ever victory in the 410 division.
Bickett won the outlaw sprints Sunday night at Huset's Speedway. He held Jody Rosenboom of Rock Rapids, Iowa to second in the 25 lap feature.
Track point leader Dusty Zomer, from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was third after setting the quickest lap in time trials at 11.075 seconds. Logan Forler, of Boise, Idaho, came in fourth and Matt Juhl, from Tea, South Dakota, was fifth.
The night started out rough with the outlaw sprints when the green flap came out for the opening heat race. Joe Riedel, from inside row two, and Tim Kaeding, from inside row three, got together and both flipped hard on the front straightaway. Both drivers uninjured but done for the night.
The most exciting finish of the night was in the 305's. Dusty Ballenger passed Robby Wolfgang right at the checkered flag for a very close victory of 5/100's of a second.
In the micro sprints there was excitement also with Randy Wulf, from Chester, South Dakota, winning for the first time ever at Huset's Speedway.
In the stock car action, it was Shaun Taylor of Sioux Falls winning the street stocks for a second time this year. And in a race marred with caution flags and a red flag, the hobby stock winner was defending champion Dustin Gulbrandson after starting 11th.
