Outlaw Street Drags to Debut in 2019

The popular fad of taking street cars to the race track will make its way to Hawkeye Downs for six events in 2019.

Over the past decade, street drag racing events have become immensely popular at many Midwest tracks, and will now be hosted on certain dates from May – September by Simmons Promotions.
