Super Trucks Races Are Just Insane

This is the last lap on this race, a relatively new motorsport popularly known as the “Stadium Super Trucks” brings off-road racing to any surface. Powered by a 600-hp Chevrolet LS V8 engine, the trucks weigh 2,900 pounds (1,300 kg) and are built with a steel-tube frame and fiberglass body. The trucks are 13’5″ long and 5’2″ high, feature a three-speed transmission and can reach speeds as high as 140 mph (230 km/h). A portion of the frame protects the driver from rolls. The truck’s high center of mass and soft suspension makes the vehicle prone to rolling. Next to the driver is a 5-US-gallon (19 l) jug that catches fluids which may have spilled from damage that the truck sustains.
