BIG Trucks... REAL Racing!

2018 Bandit Big Rig Race Series

Time to make your plans to watch the last big rig race event of the season. Watch Mike Morgan in #88 take Mackvader around the high banked turns at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee along with the other Bandits on Saturday, October 27th in an exhibition race. Monster trucks will also race and perform stunts at the Halloween Monster Truck Mash. We'll see you there!

The races at Anderson Speedway on September 15th and Myrtle Beach on September 29th have been cancelled due to Hurricane Florence and the continued flooding it has produced. An additional race has been added at Elko Speedway in Elko, Minnesota on Saturday, October 13th. The Drivers Award Party will be held afterwards. Come join us!

2018 race schedule

Bandit race trucks and drivers have a busy season ahead with 12 events on oval tracks. With $50,000 in prize money up for grabs at each event ($10,000 for the first place winner) there will be a lot of "bumpin and rubbin" and some outright crashes. As the big-rigs circle the tracks with faster trucks lapping the slower ones, going two and three wide in the turns you will experience racing unlike anything you have experienced before. This is racing like it used to be, with lots of excitement for the fans. Before racing begins all race trucks and drivers line up in front of the stands and the gates are thrown open so fans can greet their favorite drivers, have fan cards or apparel signed, and inspect the race trucks.

Generally each truck runs three races: one Heat Race of 10 laps; one Challenge Race lasting 15 laps, and the Main Race with ALL the trucks on the track for a 30-lap race. If you didn't join us for the 2017 inaugural race season, then plan on coming to one of this years events. This is exciting family fun! We hope to see you there!
