Hungarian racer Krisztian Szabo drove to victory in ChampTruck’s seventh race of the season at Motorsports Park Hastings in Nebraska.

In the seventh race of the Meritor ChampTruck World Series’ inaugural season, Hungarian racer Krisztian Szabo won his second race of the season at this weekend’s race at Motorsports Park Hastings in Nebraska.

The Podium Race produced six lead changes, four major spins that altered the finish, and a contested contact in the last corner on the last lap that resulted in a penalty being assessed, again changing the finishing order in the race.
