Estenson Records Fourth-Place Finish During MSTS 410 Sprint Cars Event

Tim Estenson posted a top-five result last Saturday during his debut at Dakota State Fair Speedway.

Estenson opened the Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 sprint cars event by finishing where he started – second – in a heat race. That lined him up on the inside of the fourth row in the main event.

“Jack (Dover) got the car pretty dialed in for the night and made adjustments to make the best of it,” he said. “It was single file pretty much all night right on the bottom. I was trying not to overdrive it or be over-aggressive. I think I got one or two positions on the start and whittled off one more in the middle of the race.

“We were able to pass a couple of cars in the feature and move forward. The biggest deal of it was to get a top five and finish in one piece.”

The fourth-place result was Estenson’s second top five of the season.

The event was the lone race of the weekend as Sunday’s show at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, S.D., rained out.

Next up for the team is a trip to Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, with the POWRi 410 Bandit Outlaw Sprint Series this Friday before venturing to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday.

“It went great the whole night at Lee County until the last six laps last season,” Estenson said. “I made an error and ended up rolling. I’m looking for redemption. And we’re excited to get the season underway at Huset’s after the opener last weekend rained out.”
