The World Is a Better Place Thanks to Stadium Super Trucks

Race cars are boring. Trucks with tons of horsepower, loads of suspension travel, and the ability to take on any surface with ease are the racing machines you didn’t know you needed in your life. Please get acquainted with Stadium Super Trucks.

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.

Over the weekend, Stadium Super Trucks was at Circuit of The Americas during the inaugural IndyCar Classic, and my life has improved because of this experience. Thankfully I brought my camera gear along, and am here to supply you with images of the best damn racing series in America—no, the world.

Please, Stadium Super Trucks, race everywhere and share your magical series. It will make the world a better place.

These are cool, but I feel like it will be even cooler if they are allowed to become completely their own thing.  Like, maybe shorter sidewalls will be a better setup for these pavement tracks.  And of course they could be slicks.  I feel like there are some interesting design questions here that no other form of racing has answered yet.
