Sammy Swindell Back At Huset's

Sammy Swindell Back At Huset's
BRANDON, SD - One of the most recognizable names in American Motorsports was back in South Dakota this past week. 3-time World of Outlaws champion Sammy Swindell was at Huset's Speedway racing in the 24 Car, filling in for Terry McCarl who is out with a non-racing injury. Swindell left a team in California and has been driving for owner Todd Quiringe since the beginning of the year.

He's been racing ever since he was 15 years old and even now at age 54, Sammy Swindell says he still has a lot of enthusiasm for the sport left in his tank.

"Every time we pull in the gate we try to do the best we can and that's all you can expect," Swindell said.

Swindell, part of what became known as the "big three" that also includes legends Steve Kinser and Doug Wolfgang, thinks all of his experience, including more than 265 career World of Outlaws' wins, has been helping him with his transition to a new team.

"I've been around long enough so I kind of know how a lot of things need to be. So you know my experience helps a lot. You know just getting these guys behind me and believing in what I want to do that's it," Swindell said.

So far the guys on his new crew have made Swindell's transition relatively smooth. He says they're up for anything and that has helped make them successful together.

"I mean we've been getting some good breaks. A few things haven't gone exactly right. But I mean we've been getting good finishes every night," Swindell said.

McCarl says he'll be back in the 24 car for the World Of Outlaws show on July 3rd at Huset's.
