Bandit race trucks and drivers have a busy season ahead with 10 or more 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. The big-rigs circle the tracks with faster trucks lapping the slower ones, going two and three wide in the turns. 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 could greet their favorite drivers, have fan cards or apparel signed, and inspect the race trucks.

Generally each truck runs at least one Shootout race and then three full 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. This is exciting family fun! We hope you will be there!

If you didn't make it to the races, then watch the action from anywhere in the world on the live-stream video posted on each race page.
