Terry McCarl picked up his first World of Outlaws A-Feature win of the season on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway in the first event of the “SuperClean Summer of Money” on ESPN2, and he followed that up on Sunday night with a win at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, where the World of Outlaws will race on Tuesday, July 3.
After sustaining significant damage to his car during a heat race, McCarl and his team unloaded their back-up car and started the 25-lap A-Feature at the rear of the 19-car field. The native of Altoona, Iowa who is the all-time winningest driver at Huset’s Speedway quickly began to slice his way through the field, as he worked his way to the front, using every inch of the racy high-banked 3/8-mile track.
McCarl found himself in the third spot with just six laps remaining. He made the pass for the win with three laps remaining, as he overtook Mark Dobmeier, who won a World of Outlaws event last season at Wilmot Speedway in Wisconsin.
“It felt good to win,” said McCarl. “My crew did a great job getting the car ready. At Huset’s they run the show pretty quick, so we had to work fast. I am proud of my crew and all the hard work they put in.”
With the win on Sunday night, McCarl now has 79 career wins at the track, where he won with the World of Outlaws last season. He also is a six-time track champion at Huset’s Speedway, a feat that is unmatched in the 50-plus year history of the track
“They have great racing up there,” said McCarl of Huset’s Speedway. “There are always good cars there, and it’s a great place to learn sprint car racing. Look at all the people that have started there from Danny Lasoski to Doug Wolfgang, and the young guys now like Dusty Zomer and Dobmeier. It is always tough to win up there.”
McCarl and the World of Outlaws return to action on Wednesday, June 20 at Missouri State Fair Speedway.
