The SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks are heading westward. On Wednesday, Grand Prix of Portland organisers announced the trucks will join the IndyCar Series weekend on 30 August to 1 September.
The date marks SST’s first trip to the Pacific Northwest.
“We have many fans in the northwest and they always ask when we’re coming,” Robby Gordon tweeted, “so hope to see you all there at the track!”
