I’d anticipate 15 to 20 a week.” HARTFORD, S.D. – A work day at the track and a barrage of phone calls from IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car drivers have owner and promoter Lyle Howey III convinced that quite a few folks in the Hartford area are excited about the re-opening of I-90 Speedway. Howey had continued maintaining the 3/8-mile dirt oval at Hartford the last two years. The old bleachers are being replaced with aluminum grandstand seating for 2,500 and after a paint of coat or two, I-90 will be ready for opening night.  “This is exciting,” Howey said. “We’re looking forward to getting the season started.” “We were looking for an affordable Sprint Car class here,” he said. “The division has done well around the country and there are a lot of new cars coming into the class. We want to see it grow here, too.” center_img A former IMCA Sprint Car driver, Howey is the RaceSaver inspector for South Dakota and teched at another track in the state last year.
