New Owner at Badlands Motor Speedway

Jan 4, 2019

Badlands Motor Speedway ownership has reached an arrangement with racing operator and race promoter Steve Rubin to take over the track.

The track was originally purchased from the Rubin Family before millions of dollars of renovations were made to the facility. Rubin operated Huset’s Speedway for more than 28 years and is considered one of the most knowledgeable racing promoters in the nation, according to Badlands Motor Speedway.

Rubin has requested 30 to 60 days to arrange the financing and investor group to keep the 60-plus year track open and plans to start racing operations this spring under the Huset’s Speedway Banner. The season opener is tentatively slated for Memorial Day weekend.

In addition to a full racing schedule, fans can expect to see concerts and special events of all kinds at the largest outdoor venue in the state of South Dakota on nearly 80 acres and with a capacity of more than 20,000.

“We are thrilled to see the Rubin Family back at the helm in Brandon at Huset’s Speedway,” track officials stated in a news release. “We are confident that Brandon, race fans, race teams and millions of others will enjoy the facility for another 28 years or more under the direction of Mr. Rubin and his family.
