SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Badlands Entertainment Group is buying Huset’s Speedway near Brandon and will upgrade it and rename it Badlands Motor Speedway after the 2015 racing season.

The longtime 1/3-mile dirt track hosts races involving hobby stocks, modifieds, late-models and sprint cars. It also hosts special events including World of Outlaws sprint races. Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart raced a sprint car there in July 2013.

Badlands CEO and Sioux Falls native Chuck Brennan says he’s a longtime fan of the track, and owning it is a dream come true. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Brennan says Badlands is planning a “massive face-lift” of the speedway that will cost millions of dollars over the next several years. The infield will host outdoor concerts, and a track hall of fame will be added.
