One of the biggest events at the Hamilton County Speedway in 2021—and possibly ever—takes place Friday and Saturday, June 25-26, when the historic half-mile dirt oval in Websiter City, Iowa, hosts the inaugural Hawkeye 600.

This incredible two-day event will feature as many as 200 drivers on the track at the same time with a 300-lap enduro-style race each night with standing starts and restarts. Cars will line up each night at 5:45 p.m. sharp.

There are no cautions. The race stops only for cars blocking most of the track, fires, flips, safety concerns or major accidents. In those cases, the red flag will be displayed. Pitting is allowed and so are driver changes.

With some serious dough up for grabs, event organizers expect everything from young to old, male and female, inexperienced and seasoned veterans adding their names to the list of hopefuls with dreams of blowing up their bank accounts.

The winner each night earns $10,000 while the overall best average finisher for the two nights gets $5,000. That's a chance for one skilled and extremely lucky racer to go home with a record $25,000—the most ever for any competitor in any class at the Hamilton County speedway.

Several drivers from all over the U.S. have already registered and officials anticipate a huge field. Help us in show these great competitors our Iowa hospitality and all that Webster City has to offer.

1st Place – $10,000
2nd Place – $2,500
