The Ben Nothdurft Memorial recognizes the efforts of the Huset’s Speedway Hall of Famer across his many years as a car owner and sponsor. Nothdurft entered the racing scene in 1988 as a sponsor for Marty Barber, and would go on to win numerous titles across the Upper Midwest as a car owner. Ben’s Bargain Barn remains in business to this day, and continues an active role on the racing scene. Nothdurft is the grandfather of the reigning champion of the Tri-State Late Model Series, Blair Nothdurft. Ben was inducted into the Huset’s Speedway Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2014.

The $6,000-to-win race will co-headline the night alongside the Casey’s 410 sprint cars and Northern Outlaw Sprint Car Association event with $7,500 on the line for the sprint car winner.
