History of the “Clash at the Downs”

In 2018, Jeremy Miller held off hometown drivers, Griffin McGrath and Brian Gibson, to capture the victory–which helped lead him to another Big 8 Series Championship.

In 2017, Hawkeye Downs natives Brody Willett and Caleb Adrian “clashed” while competing for a win in the race. It was Rosemount, Minnesota’s, Joe Neisius that brought home his first Series win.

In 2016, Michael Bilderback won over Griffin McGrath.

In 2015, Adrian earned his only Big 8 victory at his home track in the series debut at Hawkeye Downs.
