Gateway Motorsports Park has been chosen as one of three facilities nationwide to host a new challenge for NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series drivers during the 2019 season.

The Triple Truck Challenge will feature races on three consecutive weekends, June 7 at Texas Motor Speedway, June 15 at Iowa Speedway and June 22 when the Gander Truck Series 200 takes place at Gateway.

The series is for NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series drivers. Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers cannot participate.

“We worked closely with series general manager Ben Kennedy and his team, bouncing ideas off each another, on how we can make our races even more exciting in the early development stages of the Triple Truck Challenge,” said Gateway Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair. “To see this program come together shows the willingness of NASCAR to work with the tracks for the benefit of both the teams and the fans.”
