Over a dozen 13,000-pound trucks racing door to door at 80 mph on tracks no larger than a half-mile at historic venues like Hickory Motor Speedway (N.C.), Hawkeye Downs (Iowa) and Greenville-Pickens Speedway (S.C.).
The rapid growth is due in part to the affordability of the Bandit Big Rig rules package. Each race offers a $50,000 purse and $10,000 to the winner. The championship points fund is set to pay $20,000 to the eventual series victor.
Meanwhile, the trucks are less than $25,000 to build, providing a return on investment few other disciplines currently can offer.
