Buzz Continues To Build For The Showdown

BRANDON, S.D. – The Showdown is shaping up to be a can’t-miss event this summer.

Huset’s Speedway and Jackson Motorplex are combining for a spectacular week of action, featuring three nights of sprint car competition at each dirt track.

The Showdown begins on Sunday, June 20, with the $6,000-to-win Chuck Zitterich Tribute at Huset’s Speedway. Huset’s then welcomes the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on June 21-22 for the Huset’s 50, which pays $30,000 to win the finale.

Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., showcases the World of Outlaws June 24-26 during the AGCO Jackson Nationals. That event finale pays $50,000 to win.

Additionally, a stout $100,000 bonus is up for grabs to any driver who claims both finales, which would make that driver $180,000 richer.

All five World of Outlaws nights will pay at least $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start.

That is certainly going to draw some of the nation’s top competitors to the Upper Midwest to challenge the World of Outlaws, which is having an incredible battle this season.

Defending series champion Brad Sweet is the current points leader, with Sheldon Haudenschild and David Gravel within 100 points. Carson Macedo, Logan Schuchart, Aaron Reutzel and Donny Schatz are all within 184 points of Sweet.

Three of those drivers have been victorious during World of Outlaws races at the AGCO Jackson Nationals. Sweet captured the crown in 2017 and in 2019. Schatz won in 2018 and Schuchart picked up the victory last year.

Additionally, Haudenschild and Kyle Larson scored World of Outlaws wins at Huset’s Speedway last year.

Individual nightly tickets and packages for each track are available, with the best savings being a five-day ticket.
