SUPER Trucks Set For Detroit GP
DETROIT — The SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Series will compete as part of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix May 30-June 1.
In only its second season and coming off a wildly-popular debut in 2013, the SST Series will compete on the 2.3-mile Raceway at Belle Isle Park street circuit with two races run during Grand Prix weekend. The high-flying trucks will launch from a standing start for each race and they jump ramps that will be set up on the Grand Prix race circuit.
With trucks expected to reach speeds in excess of 120 mph, launching more than 15 feet in the air and covering distances more than 75 feet on Belle Isle, the SST Series is unique in the sense that all trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition.
“All the fans at the Grand Prix are going to love watching the SST Series trucks in action,” said Bud Denker, chairman of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. ”These trucks can just fly and it will be incredible to watch them battle wheel-to-wheel on the streets of Belle Isle.”
In addition to the SST Series, the IndyCar Series, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the Pirelli World Challenge Series will also compete at Belle Isle in 2014.
