Stadium Super Trucks, which seems to be everybody’s favorite warm-up race series these days, basically features a bunch of pickup truck-looking vehicles bounding over huge jumps that are set up on a race course.

Kurt Bradley put it pretty succinctly when he wrote about the phenomenon earlier this year:

“[NASCAR and off-road legend] Robby Gordon made the old Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road Nintendo game a reality in 2012, banging 600-horsepower Chevrolet V8 engines hooked up to three-speed (you read that right) automatic transmissions inside 2,900-pound steel tube frame trucks.”

They soar, they fly, hilarity ensues.

I don’t have anything new to add about what the racing is like, besides sharing this trippy clip from the bottom of one of the vehicles:

Hang on!

Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road Nintendo game


Arcade was where it was at. Four wheels with infinite spinning and zero feedback. It was the only game where 25 cents ever got me over an hour of continuous play. Back when arcade games actually rewarded you (infinitely) for doing well instead of demanding another dollar every few minutes.
