Due to the certainty of inclement weather on Saturday all racing related activities originally scheduled for Saturday, April 25 have been rescheduled to Sunday, April 26.
Hawkeye Downs Speedway has received several requests from racers to get on the track before our official Car Show Media Day, Test and Tune scheduled for Next Saturday 05-02-15.
With the receipt of this years Late Model and Sportsman Hoosier tire order yesterday we would like to open the track this Saturday from NOON till 4:00pm for a “Tire Day, Open Practice, Car Inspection, Car-Pit Registration Pre-Season Day to kick off the season.
Late Models and Sportsman competitors, please use this time to come purchase your start of the season tire allotment for the 2015 season.
What’s this all mean you ask? HD will have staff on hand to sell LM and Sportsman tires to help our racers to be ready for next Saturdays official Car Show Media Day and Test and Tune.
Tech Officials will be available to do a early 2015 safety check and answer any question you may have, both the 1/4 and 1/2 tracks will be open for pre-season shake down practice, and for those of you that have not registered your race car or paid your reserved pit stall for the 2015 season, this all can be done.
Note: Car Registration is required before opening night of May 8th so we don’t have a line holding everyone up at the pit gate.
We will also open the Tech Barn and set up the scales for anyone that needs access to double check HD Scales reads vs yours. Note: HD Scales are the official scales so please know if their is a variance to avoid conflicts. Our tire machine will also be running to use on a first come first serve basis. Note: Please don’t leave your old tires behind.
2015 Raceceivers MANDATORY: All drivers will be required to use Raceceivers this year and WE-WILL be checking this. We are well aware we let a few of you slip by last year but if you don’t have a receiver and/or proper scanner to get communications from race control you will not be allowed on the race track for your feature event on race night.
We will also have a supply of these “for purchase” from Bulltown Legends on hand this Saturday as this would be a good time to purchase and get to know how it works.
We are happy to report we have several new teams that will be joining HD this year so this would be a great opportunity for all NEW AND OLD to meet and greet each other and track officials.
In the case of rain we will still be able to complete everything but the on-track activities.
REMINDER: Current and prospective drivers are invited to attend Car and Driver Registration Wednesday evening, March 25 anytime between 5-7pm. Individuals can stop in anytime between those hours to pay fees and register for the 2015 season. The session will be held in the Hawkeye Downs Bingo Building.
For racers unable to attend, necessary forms will be up on the web site soon.
