Trucks aren’t just for hauling… You can race them too

ChampTruck World Series made a stop in St. Louis this past weekend and put on one hell of a show. Who would have ever thought that Semi-Trucks would A). Race on a road course and B). Be fun to watch.

“Big-Rig” tractor truck racing can be found in Europe, Australia, India and South America, and it has become one of the largest segments of professional motorsports.

It’s also a huge fan favorite, attracting 50,000-200,000 spectators at each event. Through broadcast media, truck racing reaches over 100 million race fans worldwide. The Meritor ChampTruck World Series, working with TRO, our European partner, brings big-rig truck racing to the U.S.A – the home of trucking and motorsports.

ChampTruck focuses on keeping all trucks basic and simple, limiting costs, maximizing competition and ensuring an exciting product by featuring world-class drivers on world-class tracks.
