410 Sprint Car Driver Dusty Zomer

July 3, 2014, 10:45 PM by Travis Fossing

410 Sprint Car Driver Dusty Zomer
BRANDON, SD -

A 23rd-place finish at last night's World of Outlaws event did little to grow the legend of Sioux Falls native Dusty Zomer, but the man known as "Zoom Zoom" has found his place among the dirt-track's elite drivers.

"It's a passion.  It's a lifestyle.  It's just one of those things where you have to have it in your blood," 410 Sprint Car driver Dusty Zomer said.

A five-time Grand National go-kart champion, Sioux Falls native Dusty Zomer made the move to sprint cars in 2002.  After cutting his teeth in the 360 sprints, winning ten features in a few short seasons, Zomer graduated to 410 sprints, and now races weekly at Knoxville Raceway.

"If you want to be the best, you've got to race against the best, and Knoxville was really known for making you used to the speed and making you a better driver.  You've heard it from experienced veterans like McCarl, who said if you can race around Knoxville and then come to Huset's on a Sunday night and race around here, you can pretty much race anywhere, and that's a true statement," Zomer said.

Zomer enjoys racing in front of family and friends at Huset's Speedway, but makes the five-hour drive to Knoxville each weekend, where he's currently eighth in the 410 point standings.  Dusty has finished top-five in points three straight years, but it always looking to improve.

"This sport will humble you quickly, but every year we do have goals.  We want to get better.  You want to improve.  Even off of a stellar run, you still want to get better," Zomer said.

Only 28-years-old, Zomer is young, but experienced, and enjoying the dirt-path he's on.

"Going back, I wouldn't change anything.  It's been a blast.  It's a dream come true to race one of these things," Zomer said.

While others spend their weekend boating or fishing, Zomer makes the five hour drive to Knoxville each Friday, races on Saturday, and returns home on Sunday.  Zomer lives out of a camper while in Iowa.
