“With heavy rain over the past 36 hours at Huset’s Speedway causing severe flooding and weather models projecting more rain through the weekend, World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Car and track officials have agreed to postpone the remainder of the BillionAuto.com Huset’s High Bank Nationals presented by Menards week,” the World of Outlaws said in a statement. “The decision comes with the safety of teams and fans in mind.

“Series and track officials plan to work together in the coming days on finding a viable makeup date and plan to release more details regarding the event and ticketing.“

On Friday, Tea Storm Chasers, a non-profit organization, was on the scene. They have pictures and videos of the flooding in the parking area on their social media.

Due to the extensive flooding, it’s not clear how long Huset’s Speedway will not be able to race. The World of Outlaws feature was supposed to go through Saturday night.

The postponement dates will likely include four dates. According to the Huset’s Speedway website, the World Of Outlaws would have to make up Thursday through Sunday events.

Their next scheduled event is in two weeks on Sunday, July 7th. This would be the Metro Construction Night- MSTS 410 Sprint Cars.

The classes involved in the July 7th show would be the Cressman Sanitation 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars, Wyffels Hybrids Racesaver Sprint Car Series, and the Nordstrom’s Late Model Street Stocks.

Barring more flooding, the track should be back to normal in two weeks.
