ChampTruck is bringing big rig racing back the U.S., which hasn’t had a truck racing circuit in more than 20 years.

Ten races will be held this year around the country at premiere U.S. speedways, including the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, Pikes Peak International Raceway and more.

The first race takes place next month at the New Jersey Motorsports Park.
