New off-road racing series promises to impress
Stadium Super Trucks is an up-coming off-road series that will begin in 2013 and consist of 12 stadium truck racing events across the country. According to the series’ website, the first off-road racing event takes place in April.
The trucks will be modeled after manufacturer replicas, and they’ll insist of at least 600 HP V8 engines with 20-inch wheels, the site says.
“Stadium racing helped Jimmie Johnson, Casey Mears and myself launch our careers,” Robby Gordon, President of SST, said on the website. “Bringing off-road racing back to the stadium like Mickey Thompson did has been something that I have wanted to do for a long time, and I am proud to say that we have finally accomplished it. SST offers attractive racing venues, remarkable track designs, substantial purse, and opportunity for network TV a lot like NASCAR because you can visualize the whole track.”
