BRANDON, S.D. --
There were so many people at Husets Speedway last night that the fire marshall had to put a halt to ticket sales.
And that was 45 minutes before racing began.
A record crowd jammed into the speedway and waited till nearly one in the morning to watch Nascar star Tony Stewart race in the World Of Outlaws.
And the estimated 1,500 fans got their money's worth.
Stewart, in the number 14 car, did not disappoint in his Husets debut. The guy nicknamed "Smoke" left many in the dust, he had the second fastest qualifying time.
The Street Stocks went to Sioux Falls Craig Hanisch.
But the fireworks came late in the night during the World Of Outlaws main event. After a small wreck, Stewart comes out of the caution to take the lead on Lap 5, and led for the next 25, was actually lapping much of the field.
But, on Lap 31, trying to get past a slower car he'd already lapped, Smoke spins out, and that allows pole winner Tim Kaeding to pass him. And in the end it's Kaeding get the victory thanks to some rough luck for Stewart.
"You know, sheer attrition and running wide open around here definitely let us run back up on Tony there, so it was definitely an awesome night. You know, he probably had this race won. I'm not going to lie. He was fast out in the open. I've had many taken away that way and, you know, Tony did a helluva job, I gotta give him credit." Kaeding said.FINAL STANDINGS
