Badlands Motor Speedway to return to former owner

Dec. 28, 2018

Steve Rubin will be back at the helm of the Brandon speedway he operated for almost three decades.

Badlands Motor Speedway ownership announced an agreement with Rubin, whose family sold the track to Chuck Brennan in 2015. Brennan made millions in renovations and renamed the track before shutting it down in 2017.

Rubin operated Huset’s Speedway for 28 years and is considered one of the most knowledgeable racing promoters in the nation, according to a statement from Badlands.

He has requested up to 60 days to arrange financing and put together an investor group to reopen the 60-year-old speedway and start racing under the Huset’s Speedway name 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 South Dakota, with almost 80 acres and with a capacity of over 20,000, Badlands said.

“We are thrilled to see the Rubin family back at the helm in Brandon at Huset’s Speedway. 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,” the statement said.

“It has been agreed upon by both parties that if the fundraising efforts fall thru that the facility would be demolished and discontinued at that time. Right now we are not accepting any other offers.”
