DAVENPORT, IOWA (August 20, 2021) — When the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Models bring their high-octane show to Davenport Speedway, August 26-28, fans will be treated to a full itinerary of can’t-miss action.

Along with edge-of-your-seat seat racing from The Most Powerful Late Models on the Planet — waging a war of slide jobs throughout the tripleheader weekend to try and collect a $50,000 payday in total — the Quad Cities 150 presented by Hoker Trucking will give fans the opportunity to participate in an assortment of activities.

They’ll have the chance to give back on Thursday, August 26, and Friday, August 27, by participating in the Hoker’s Haul Toys for Tots drive. Fans are encouraged to bring a toy to help fill up the semi-truck parked on the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds.

For those eager to meet their favorite driver, an autograph session will be held on Saturday, August 28, at 4:30PM (CT), featuring the superstars of the sport like three-time defending champion Brandon Sheppard, two-time Xtreme DIRTcar Series champion Chris Madden, Iowa natives Ryan Gustin and Tyler Bruening, and many more.

There will be live music for fans to enjoy each night after the checkered flag flies. The bands on tap include, Dirt Road RockersJust Cuz, and Bad Hair.

Other events to keep an eye out for throughout the weekend include:

  • The 4-City Cornhole Tournament.
  • Slot-car racing.
  • A virtual racing experience.
  • The QC Gearheads Drive-In Car Show.

Food trucks will also be parked on the fairgrounds, giving anyone hungry the chance to enjoy different kinds of treats. Drivers racing at the event will also have a sponsored lunch on Friday, August 26, at the Speedway’s Pavilion.

The Quad Cities 150 is the first multi-day show with fans for the Davenport Speedway-K Promotions team since taking over the facility in June 2019.

When it comes to the racing action, Sheppard will look to keep his winning streak at Davenport Speedway alive. The New Berlin, Illinois driver, swept all three events the Series ran at the track in 2020.

To do so, he’ll have to contend with drivers like championship rival, Madden, the Iowa stand-outs Bruening and Gustin, Ricky Weiss, Dennis Erb Jr, and more.

Joining the World of Outlaws throughout the weekend are the IMCA Modifieds and Sport Mods.
