The upcoming Stadium Super Trucks race weekend at Road America will boast more than the usual suspects. Although the official entry list has not been released, John Holtger announced over the weekend that he will return to the series at Elkhart Lake, while a Sunday night test at series headquarters revealed Zoey Edenholm will make her SST début.

Holtger began racing in SST with the 2019 Road America weekend, during which he finished eighth, seventh, and seventh in the three races. The 15-year-old from Abrams, Wisconsin currently competes in Championship Off-Road, where he sits second in the Pro Lite standings and twelfth in the Pro Stock SXS points after four rounds. He is a two-time Midwest Mod Kart champion.

Race Driven and Auto Haus, both of which sponsored his 2019 truck, will return to the #44 SST for 2020.

On social media, Holtger posted, “It’s official!! The 44 Race Driven truck is returning to Road America next weekend for the Stadium Super Trucks race! Huge thank you to all of our partners for helping make this happen!”

In 2019, Edenholm raced in the Formula 4 United States Championship, where she finished thirtieth in points with a best finish of ninth at Virginia International Raceway. The Scottsdale, Arizona native spent the previous four years competing in karting.

She drove the #21 truck during the late-night test in Charlotte, North Carolina. Assuming she retains the number for Road America, she will be the first American to use the number plate since Rob MacCachren in 2013. Edenholm will also join Sara Price as the only female drivers to have raced in SST. In an comment on the SST Instagram post announcing Edenholm’s entry, Price wrote she is “so excited for another female!”

Besides Edenholm and Holtger, other participants in the test included series regulars Robby Gordon and Bill Hynes. Gordon’s son Max was also present.

Two races are scheduled for Saturday, 8 August in support of the NASCAR Xfinity SeriesHenry 180. It will be the first American dates of the 2020 SST season and the trucks’ first action since February’s Adelaide 500.
