Points Racing Concludes; Race Added

After the derecho came through on August 10th, Hawkeye Downs was disappointed to see only one track stadium light remained, as well as damage to several buildings and structures. The lack of lights means our Friday night points series has been concluded, but that won’t stop the action on the track.

A drifters event, a stop from Crown Rally Midwest, and a road course enduro spiced up August, providing some much needed escape for the community after the storm. In September, that continues with several events including the Raceway Ride on September 13th, an event where patrons can drive their own vehicle around the track.

The final weekend of the month will play host to a special race on Saturday, September 26th featuring Legends, Hornets, Hobby Stocks, Sport Mods, and Sportsman on the ¼ mile track. This race will include special features including qualifying, and a choose cone for restarts. The following day will see a 200-lap Enduro on the track with an 80’s theme. 

Despite the short season, our 2020 champions are: Patrick Flannagan (Sport Mods), Jim Hanson (Hobby Stocks), Aaron Moyer (Legends), Braxton Franks (Sportsman), and Troy Scott (Hornets). Hawkeye Downs would like to congratulate these drivers on their season, and thank every driver that participated in the 2020 season.
