Stunt driver and Class 8 racer Mike Ryan wants you to be a Champ. In 2015, with John Condren of the ChumpCar World Series (pictured, right, with Ryan) among others, the ChampTruck World Series Class 8 race series will launch with a first event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Ryan and Condren explain things in the video below, shot in the South Lobby Wednesday prior to MATS’ opening today. Essentially, they’d like to build a Class 8 racing culture in the U.S. with a popularity at similar levels to what is seen in Europe today. Enjoy.
Also catch photos of the Ryan Pike’s Peak Hill Climb heavily-modified Freightliner (yes, the one used in the stunt-jump vid I shared earlier this week) with the Columbia in the gallery below the video.
