The ASA Speed Truck Challenge Series
Any one who loves their vehicles big and fast will love the ASA Speed Truck Challenge Series. Set to take place this Saturday night on 5 April 2008, the racing series will highlight an impressive five divisions of truck racing. This is the ASA Speed Truck Challenge Series’ 12th season of racing and it certainly looks as if it will be one of the best racing seasons ever.
The ASA Speed Truck Challenge Series is a regional racing series that caters for mid-sized racing trucks. The series caters to a wide range of driving talent, and drivers may range between 14 and 60 years of age. The next races will be held at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale. So far this year the ASA-STC has already seen some crazy action. Not only have two first-time winners emerged, but 15 year old Chris Buescher from Texas has set the fastest qualifying lap time, won the trophy dash and taken the 100 lap feature during the last fifty feet of the last lap. This was Chris Buescher’s first time inside a speed truck, which makes this remarkable feat even more astounding. If the rest of the ASA-STC Series continues at the same pace, this weekend’s racing is bound to be phenomenal. What’s more, the Toyota Speedway is a team favorite with a fast track and multi grooves which give drivers plenty of elbow room.
Added to all this excitement is the West Coast Pro Truck Series, which will also be taking place this Saturday night at the Toyota Speedway. Previously this leg of the series featured a 30 lap race that was won by Ricky James. On the one third mile paved oval inside the half mile track the Legend Cars will be running a 25-lap race. After this feature, the same track will host the speedway’s Bandolero division. These cars may be small, but they are quick and five youngsters have the opportunity to fine-tune their talent from a very young age.
