For several years on and off, the “Throwdown” has existed in some form or another. It started as an HPV race where a bunch of us regional/national racers coordinated to come race a club weekend without telling anyone. The locals were a bit surprised to see 25 of the top HPV drivers in the country show up and crash their club race weekend! The traditional trophy for the event has always been a traveling sword, referencing the quote from the Highlander (“There can be only one!”)
The event is back again this year in the form of the IAME Throwdown and the Fall Shoot-Out, which has been building off of a few IAME Pro money races that have been held at Badger throughout the year. Lots of great prizes, great competition, and plenty of fun to be had. I don’t have a ton to do with the organization of the race, but I will be there racing/wrenching/coaching and would love to see plenty of guys come out and help increase the cash prize pool!
