Mahnomen, MN (WDAY TV) - Tonight, we drop the green flag on our weekly Speedway Spotlight segment. It's an inside look at racecar drivers from around the area and our first stop is at the Buffalo River Race Park and Hornet driver Tommy Habedank of Mahnomen.

Habedank currently sits in 2nd place in the standings, just one point back of the leader. He says it's a sport that he got hooked on 4 years ago.

Tommy Habedank – Hornet Driver (Mahnomen): “I started out and I only did a half year. I rolled over here my fifth race. I rolled it five or six times and totaled out the car. I was hooked from there, I don't know why. I bought the car at the end of last year. It was a point champion car last year and that's why I bought it. It's still running strong and it's a nice running car.”
