Sport Mods Return to Hawkeye Downs

In 2019, the roar of Sport Mods will be returning to Hawkeye Downs on a weekly basis.

With sponsorship from Cassill Motors, the cars, which usually stick to dirt, take to the asphalt to battle each week in an effort to conquer Hawkeye Downs victory lane and ultimately the championship.

An exciting race season is in store for race fans, as the sport mods will join the weekly classes of hornets, hobby stocks, legends, sportsman, and late models. The AIRS Vintage Cars will also be back for four race nights. A more detailed version of the schedule showing which series will participate in which nights will be available in the near future.

Although full rules have not been announced yet, more details will be announced soon. For more information, please contact caleb.slouha@hawkeyedowns.org
