Sport Trucks

With the growing interest in truck racing, Seekonk Speedway decided to do something just a little different. In 1995, Seekonk Speedway introduced the Sport Truck division. The difference from what people were watching on TV was the downsized version of trucks being used. Using a stock frame and body, four-cylinder engines was the mandate. Minimal modifications were allowed, mostly for safety, to allow the fans to watch some great racing. Many of the competitors for the first few seasons were drivers that moved up from the defunct Formula Four division. They compete on Hoosier racing tires, which allows the 4 cylinder and V8 engines to run competitively on the speedway.

Many drivers have used this division as a stepping stone from the Seekonk Youth Racing Association, while others have settled into the division as a cost alternative to the higher priced Pro Stocks and Late Models. Ford Ranger, Chevrolet S-10, Nissan Frontier, and Toyota Tacoma trucks are the most popular choice for the competitors.
