Big rig racing returns; offers $50,000 at each race

The Bandit Big Rig Series of truck racing starts its season next month.

The series, which gets under way March 25 at Hickory Motor Speedway in Newton, North Carolina, offers competitors the chance to win $50,000 in prize money at each race.

The series will also pay $10,000 for feature event race winners. Cash prizes will be paid from first to 25th place.

Minimizer is one of the event’s sponsor, and company CEO and Chief Visionary Officer Craig Kruckeberg said they were attracted to the series because it’s an opportunity to reward truck drivers.

“This is the grassroots of the trucking industry — it’s intense, fun and a chance to get in front of the next generation of our industry,” Kruckeberg said.
