Changes to Bingo Concession Prices

As Hawkeye Downs Management continues to work to improve the experience at all of our activities on campus, we are announcing new prices to our bingo concessions! We know that our bingo players are used to prices going up, but heading into 2018, we are happy to say many of our prices will be going down!

 

We understand that in previous, our prices can make or break a persons decision to come play with us, and we appreciate all of our players. Because of this, instead of raising our prices, many will be coming down. The price board above concessions will reflect this immediately. The board has also been revised as we look into improving our menu more.

 

Below is a look at our new prices:
Hamburger $3.25 (was $4)
Cheeseburger $3.75 (was $4.25)
Hot Dog $3.75
Chili Dog $4.25

New Years Eve Bingo 2017

The holiday season has arrived! This is a wonderful time to get together and spend time with our family, something we here at Hawkeye Downs firmly believe in.

 

Bingo Monday, Thursday and Saturdays.

While we understand that many players like to attend bingo on New Years Eve, the management has decided not to host bingo this year in order to allow our players and staff the ability to be with their families during this time.

 

Bingo will be played at the regular days and times during that week, Thursday (28th), Friday (29th), and Saturday (30th). Our staff looks forward to seeing you on this week in between Christmas and New Years. Hawkeye Downs appreciates your patronage and understanding with your decision.

Multiple Series to Return in 2018

This past year Hawkeye Downs competitive racing from 10 different series, including our 5 weekly series. We are excited to already have several of these confirmed for the 2018 season.

 

All five of our weekly racing series: Hornets, Hobby Stocks, Sportsmen, Legends, and Late Models. On top of this, we will be welcoming back various races such as the Carpetland USA “Floor-It” Dash, and the Hard Charger Series. Our weekly racing produces action-packed fun which we cannot wait for next year.

 

Fans absolutely loved watching the AIRS Vintage Cars three different times in the 2017, so we have extended our partnership with the series and plan to have them back four times next year. This means once a month fans will be able to witness the classic cars at their only asphalt performance. Specific days will be announced as the dates get closer.

 

For the 4th consecutive year, Hawkeye Downs will be holding the “Clash at the Downs” Big 8 Series race. The best late model drivers in the Midwest will once again return on Friday, June 1st. This event has become a favored part of our schedule as well as part of the Big 8 Series schedule.

 

One series fans enjoy watching along with the weekly series is the Mid-American Stock Car Series, which is expected to return in 2018. No dates have been set, but plan on seeing them once again in June.

Update: The Mid-Am Series has been confirmed for June 22nd, 2017.

Bandit Big Rig Series

 

The Bandit Big Rig Series made their debut at the track this year, and like the rest of the country swept the fans right off their feet. The staff, fans, and series all fell in love with the partnership, which is why they will be coming back on Saturday, June 9th for another fantastic day of racing. Support series for that day have not been finalized yet.

 

More of the 2018 racing schedule will be announced over the coming weeks.
