A NASCAR truck race is returning to South Africa on Saturday, when the NASCAR Truck series will field a field of more than 30 cars for a series that has been struggling to break into the U.S. for a few years now.
The series has struggled in its first season and is currently tied for second place in the championship standings, trailing only the Xfinity Series, which has a similar number of cars in the field.
This year, however, there is a chance that the series will make a push, and will play host to a first-ever NASCAR Truck race on Saturday.
The Truck series has been in South Africa since 2004, and in that time it has only hosted two events, the World Truck Series and the Superstock series.
South Africa is one of the few countries in the world where NASCAR is not a major part of the sport, but with the NASCAR season getting underway in the U, NASCAR hopes to get more exposure and fans to see the series for the first time.
NASCAR Truck drivers have been a staple of NASCAR events since the series started in 1992, and the series is known for its strong truck driver drivers.
In recent years, NASCAR has struggled to make an impact in the race car scene, with the series struggling to field a solid crew for the championship.
The season opener will be the first of two races this season, and fans of the series can look forward to the return of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2019.
