In 1992, he tried his hand at his own business in welding. In 1994, Larry was offered and took the position at Huset’s Speedway as the Track Prep Supervisor which he did until 2008, when he had to quit due to health issues.
Larry was a major outdoorsman and racing enthusiast. He loved to hunt deer and pheasants as well as play hard in the dirt. Larry raced snowmobiles, cars, monster trucks, built his own truck for truck pulls and participated in demolition derbies. His children recall going to snow machine races early on with their dad, having to eat peanut butter sandwiches and cheering him on.
