Big Rigs have been racing around Alberta, BC, and Washington since 1989. I remember one of my favorite oval events at Race City Motorsport Park, was the Big Rigs in June at the same time as the Oil show. There was always lots of exciting action & great racing when the Big Rigs was the show. If you get a chance to see them race, you will not be disappointed.

Interview with Isaac Harder the President of North American Big Rig Racing Truck # 36.

Velocity: “How many trucks are in the series this year?”

Isaac Harder: “11 in total this year”

Velocity asked: “So how many races do you have this year?”

Isaac Harder: “We have 7 races.

Velocity: “Last year was the 1st year for the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, you were looking forward to that race, how did it go?

Isaac Harder: “It was a phenomenal race, 1 of the few races where we got to run from green to checker, it was a full hard fought, long race.”

Velocity: “For Calgary fans making a trip to see you race is there a track close to Spokane Washington?

Isaac Harder: “Yes is Stateline in Washington would be 15 minutes out of Spokane Washington.”

Velocity: “So Calgary fans who miss seeing you guys race can go down there or go to Western Speedway Victoria, BC. So is Big Rig Racing packing in the crowds like it did at Race City?”

Isaac Harder: “Right now we are still growing it down here, South Sound Speedway which is just south of Seattle. 1 Year we just blew out their 4th of July attendance, we are always their top 3 of attendance for events of the year. Stateline Speedway we are also 1 of the Top 3 events of the year for the last 6 years, yeah we bring in the crowds, the longer we are there the bigger the crowds.”

Velocity: “So the Bullring at Las Vegas should be great, any other track you can think of you are looking forward to?”

Isaac Harder: “Salt Lake City is almost exactly what Race City was, just newer bigger facility.”

Velocity: “Anything big or particular about last year?”

lsaac Harder: “Last year was probably our worst for rain outs & having to reschedule stuff, that is weather there is nothing you can do about that.”

Velocity: “Anything new this year?”

lsaac Harder: “There is 1 new truck on the circuit this year, truck # 11, they completely rebuilt it & revamped it.”
