Big rig racing series resumes virtualy


The Bandit Big Rig Series returns to the race track later this month for the first time in 2020.

The six-ton race trucks will hit Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, though without fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though fans can’t attend in person, a virtual event pass is available for $9.99 for fans to watch the race live online.

The racing action will begin at 6:50 p.m. Central time with opening ceremonies, followed by three 10-lap heat races and other events. The feature race is set to begin around 8:50 p.m.
