NEWTON — Charlie Hunnam, popular star of the hit FX Network motorcycle drama “Sons of Anarchy,” will appear in two private “Meet & Greets” and a special public “Meet & Greet” session on Saturday, June 1, during the second annual Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally at Iowa Speedway in Newton.

The public “Meet & Greet” with Hunnam, whose character “Jax” is a hero to the thousands of devoted “Sons of Anarchy” fans, is scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. in the track’s Newton Club. Admission is included with the purchase of a Saturday, June 1, Iowa Grand Rally ticket, but will be limited to the first 150 people requesting a special wristband on that day, available on a first-come, first-served basis. While there is no additional fee for the “Meet & Greet,” Hunnam will charge $5 per autograph.

Hunnam will also participate in two private “Meet & Greet” sessions in one of the track’s VIP Suites, at noon and 2 p.m. on June 1, which will be limited to the first 60 people to sign up for each one-hour session. The cost for a private session is $115 per person, which includes gate admission for the Saturday rally, light hors d’oeuvres and exclusive access to Hunnam for photos and autographs, plus a special 8x10 photo of Hunnam.

The Noon private “Meet & Greet” session with Hunnam will go on sale Monday, May 6, at 10 a.m.:, while the 2 p.m. “Meet & Greet” will be available for sale on Monday, May 13, also at 10 a.m. Both sessions are only available online atwww.iowaspeedway.com.

“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.”
