BOONE, Iowa – The start of the inaugural World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series Hawkeye 100 at Boone Speedway on May 1-2 will feature a historic first for the series.
When competitors take the green flag for the $30,000-to-win finale on May 2, they will line up three-abreast and take the green flag side-by-side-by-side for the first time in World of Outlaws history.
Hawkeye 100 co-promoter Cody Sommer has been working hard with track and series officials to create this unique event at Boone Speedway and he couldn’t be more proud to be associated with everyone involved.
“To have the opportunity to be involved at an event at Boone in any fashion is a privilege and an honor,” Sommer said. “Boone has such great history, very well known for the raciness, the track prep and the facility. Boone has never seen anything like this and the World of Outlaws have never started three-wide. The atmosphere and energy before that green flag is going to be through the roof.
“We have been overwhelmed with the number of calls for tickets and camping,” he added.
The two-day event includes three preliminary Triple Hawk $2,500-to-win features on Friday, with the 100-lap Hawkeye 100, $30,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start main event on Saturday.
In addition to the super late models, officials have partnered with Marshalltown Speedway to provide a three-day IMCA Modified romp tallying over $30,000 in prize money, with a $1,000-to-win feature at Marshalltown on Thursday, April 30, a pair of Twin Hawk $1,000-to-win features at Boone on Friday and the $3,000-to-win Hawkeye 30 on Saturday, May 2. IMCA Sport Mods and IMCA Stock Cars will feature at Marshalltown Thursday, with Sport Mods running Friday at Boone and Stock Cars rounding out the lineup on Saturday.
