David Kruger Obituary – Death, David Kruger has passed away

David Kruger Obituary, Death –  David Kruger is now the owner of the well-known automobile with the license plate #97, which he drives. (This was taken from Chad Kuhnert’s personal collection.) The news that David Kruger, who had been inducted into the Huset’s Speedway Hall of Fame in 2012, had gone away on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, has left all of us feeling incredibly upset and bereft. David Kruger is gone but not forgotten.

David Kruger started his career in stock car racing at an age that was much older than typical. Nevertheless, he finally got to the level of becoming one of the top street stock drivers in the Midwest despite the fact that he began his profession at an age that was much older than usual. David Kruger, a resident of Steen, Minnesota, began his racing career in the Street Stock division at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa, when he was 36 years old. The state of Iowa is home to the racetrack. On the racetrack, David Kruger’s ascent to the top spot on the podium did not take a very lengthy amount of time. David won his first of a total of four titles at Rapid Speedway although he was still relatively new to the sport and still inside his first two years of participation. In the end, Kruger was victorious in the Street Stock category 40 times over the course of his career. In addition, Kruger had success with his silver #97 street stock in other Midwestern racetracks, such as the dirt track ovals in Aberdeen, South Dakota, Hartford, South Dakota, and Jefferson, South Dakota, as well as the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls and Slayton, Minnesota.

These racetracks are all located in the state of South Dakota. David Kruger was victorious in a total of 28 A Features races at Huset’s Speedway, and he also had 16 victories at the Lake County Speedway in Madison, South Dakota. Both of these venues are located in the state of South Dakota. David also competed in the Street Stock division at Lake County Speedway in 1986 and won the championship in that category. In that year, he also won the overall championship. In addition, Kruger won the Street Stock Jackson Nationals in the year 1990. This competition was held in Jackson, Minnesota, and it was won by Kruger. In 2007, David Kruger made the decision to call it quits and retire from his career as a full-time competitor.
