“We are really excited about having Charlie Hunnam back for our second annual Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally,” said Iowa Speedway CEO, Doug Fritz. “With Charlie’s expanded schedule this year, we’re able to offer even more fan access to him, and especially in the private ‘meet & greets’. One of the greatest things about Charlie is that, in addition to being a big star, he always takes a lot of time to visit with everybody who comes to see him.”
