Hawk Helps Drivers Brake Through At Runoffs

Day two of Runoffs qualifying is an important one. Any driver rust has been knocked off. Setup changes and adjustments to the car following the first day has been done. That Wednesday also sets the grid for Thursday’s Tire Rack pole day.

It was the chance to move forward – to recover from a difficult Tuesday – that led our friends at Hawk Performance to declare Wednesday at this year’s Runoffs Hawk Brake Through Performer Day. The biggest mover in each of the 26 classes earned a set of Hawk brake pads for their racecar, tow rig or street car.

For over 25 years, championship winning drivers and teams have demanded Hawk Performance motorsport brake pads. Now, Hawk’s advanced technology is available for daily cars, trucks and SUVs with Hawk Street Performance products. There’s the improved HP-Plus pad for that hybrid street and track feel, super-duty pads for tow vehicles, and the new Talon rotors.

The 26 drivers who took advantage of that Hawk stopping power were:
