LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Super truck racing, well established in Europe, is coming to North America.
The newly-fledged Super Truck Racing Association of North America (STRANA) announced its intention to start staging races within a year or so. The product on the track will include professional teams and drivers.
STRANA, similar to CART or NASCAR, is a governing body for super truck racing in North America under the leadership of executive director Brian Till, a former PPG IndyCar and Toyota Atlantic Series driver.
Till said he would like to see super truck racing become a continental sport with venues in Canada and Mexico but there were no firm plans at this point.
STRANA also announced ZF Group NAO as the title sponsor of the ZF Super Truck Championship Racing Series. ZF is hoping to use the sport to advance its product designs by subjecting them to extreme conditions posed by racing.
