The racing community of the Sioux Falls area has something to cheer about.

The I-90 Speedway near Hartford, South Dakota, will reopen in 2019 under new management.

While Lyle and Dawn Howey continue to own the facility, Rod “Hot Rod” Pattison will serve as general manager of the track. The 2019 racing season will begin in early May and run Saturday nights through early September.

"I am so fired up about this project and the team we have assembled,” said Pattison. “We have a lot of work to do to make this all come together, but it's all going to be worth it come opening night."

In addition to Pattison, Dale Furby is the track’s new competition director and Terry Kjergaard will serve in a media relations role. Shawn Neisteadt is the track’s new announcer.

“This management team has literally decades of experience in all facets of racing and have what it takes to make a track, and the sport of racing, great,” added Pattison.

Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Cook Racing Supplies USRA Hobby Stocks will headline the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series competition at the track. RaceSaver Sprint Cars, Late Model Street Stocks and several special events will also be on the schedule.

Details were announced at a news conference on Tuesday at the Holiday Inn City Center in downtown Sioux Falls.

I-90 Speedway originally opened in 1976. The 3/8-mile dirt oval last held competition in 2015.
