Texas Motor Speedway’s (TMS) track president Eddie Gossage announced Wednesday that the Stadium Super Trucks would return to the Fort Worth, Texas speedway’s schedule. However, the trip’s date would change.

Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks Series (SST) will join the NASCAR tripleheader in March on the 1.5-miler that includes Monster Energy Cup, Xfinity and Gander Outdoors Truck races. The first SST race of the O’Reilly 500 is on Saturday, March 30th after the NASCAR Xfinity Series event. On Sunday, March 31st action will be packed for fans at the Great American Speedway, with a SST race before the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup O’Reilly Auto Parts 500, and a second race following the 500-miler.

The SST have visited the Speedway since 2017, but visited during the INDYCAR weekend in June, which also hosts a NASCAR Truck event. “The past two years we have been at the track with IndyCar and now to have the organizers believe that we can add real value to the NASCAR weekend I'm extremely excited about it. Most of all, I'm extremely confident that the NASCAR fans will love what we bring to motorsport.” said founder, owner and competitor, Robby Gordon about the exciting news

The course is run on the frontstretch of the 1.5-oval, and turns into the infield using the south infield road course which runs across the paddock and pit lane. The course features several jumps, some of which go over other parts of the circuit.
