(Cedar Rapids, IA)–This Friday Night, May 22 is Corridor Motors Night at Hawkeye Downs Speedway. Corridor Motors is a used car dealer located at 3909 1st ave SE in Cedar Rapids. They take pride in offering low down payments and buy here-pay here financing.
It’s week three of the 90th season of racing at Hawkeye Downs Speedway and all five divisions of the Hy-Vee Racing Series will be in action, but particular focus will be on the Dublin City Pub INEX Legends.
Hawkeye Downs Speedway will host some of the best Legend Car Drivers from across the country this Friday night to raise awareness and funding for COPS-Concern of Police Survivors. The enhanced purse event pays $1000 to win and is also a Regional Qualifier for INEX Legend Cars.
The event was started in honor of officer and fellow racer, Danny Martinez, who was killed in 2007. In remembrance of all the officers killed in the line of duty, each driver will carry the name of a fallen police officer from their home state.
C.O.P.S. is instrumental in offering support of all types, to the survivors of the men and women killed in the line of duty while serving their communities. All proceeds of the event are contributed directly to C.O.P.S., which is a nonprofit organization.
