Stadium Super Trucks has announced that there will be a SUPER Buggy support class for the Trucks races. The buggies will have 210hp and are inspired by the Super 1600 buggies that raced in the original Mickey Thompson's Off-Road Racing Series.
“The Super 1600 buggies is where a lot of successful racers started their careers,” said Series President, Robby Gordon. “It’s a really popular class, and I’m hoping our SUPER Buggies can launch some of these guys careers like it did for myself, Bob Gordon, Jerry Whelchel, Marty Coyne, Marty Hart, Marty Tripes, Bob Hannah, Frank Arciero Jr. and more. With our series showcased in the best venues across the country, there’s no other place where this class can race and get this type of exposure. Guys will race for $5,000 going to the winner with second place earning $2,500 and third getting $1,500, all while being televised on NBC. Adding another competitive class to SST will bring great drivers and teams that will make for exciting racing that fans will really enjoy.”
Stadium Super Trucks has their first event April 6 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ.
