Update on Huset’s Driver Transported to Hospital
I don't think I've seen a sprint car scattered all over the track in pieces any more than Dale Furby's outlaw sprinter Sunday night at Huset's Speedway after taking a horrifying flip over on the back straight away.
The car for some reason went airborne like it was pole vaulted by a broken component underneath the racing machine while he was under full throttle and it flipped and crashed hard.
The emergency medical staff had to carefully extract driver Dale Furby from the mangled race car. He was then transported by ambulance to the hospital.
The good news is, Furby is going to be OK. I personally taked with his stepson, Justin Glaser, early Monday morning. Justin reports that Dale was released from the hospital at about 2:00 AM with nothing broken and only bruises.
Now let's take a look at the race itself. The crash with Dale Furby happened early on lap three. On lap four Tim Kaeding took the lead from Joe Riedel and led thru lap 14. Then Kaeding blew an engine.
Mark Dobmeier, from Grand Forks, North Dakota, took over the lead on lap 15 and drove to victory. Logan Forler of Boise, Idaho was second, Dusty Zomer third, Austin McCarl fourth and Ryan Bickett fifth.
Shon Pointer of Grand Island, Nebraska won the 305's, Gary Brown, Jr. the street stocks, Nick Barger the b mods and Chad Kuhnert was a repeat winner in the hobby stocks. See complete results.
Other racing from the week had Knoxville rained out. Clint Benson of Nebraska won the sprints at I-90 Speedway. Lee Grosz of Harwood, North Dakota won the MSTS 360's at Jackson. And Danny Lasoski won the NSL race at Farmington, Missouri.
