Rusty Wallace Racing Experience

Hawkeye Downs Speedway has been a fixture in Cedar Rapids since 1925 , operating under different names including Frontier Park, and the Cedar Rapids Speedway. From it’s opening, until 1989, the facility was a dirt track. The 1989 season saw Hawkeye Downs become Iowa’s first weekly paved oval, with both ¼ mile and ½ mile tracks, paved pits, an enclosed tech building, MUSCO broadcast quality lighting, electronic message board, and many other outstanding features. In more recent years, a new Daktronics scoreboard and message center has been added, along with a transponder timing and scoring system.

Hawkeye Downs has been a popular venue over the years for visiting regional and national series, including ASA, IMCA, NASCAR, UMARA, USAC, and the American Indy Car Series.

Hawkeye Downs has long been considered the crowned jewel of short track racing in the Midwest, and remains as a great resource for quality outdoor family entertainment! Make your plans to join us this summer!
