Presently, the Truck Series utilizes the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, and Toyota Tundra.

The vehicles are fueled by 6.0-liter, V8 engines, with carburetors. Engines are 650-700bhp powered and can reach speeds up to 180mph.

Points System

8 drivers qualify for the postseason races. Success in the initial 16 races is the pre-requisite for qualification to the postseason format. However, only full-time drivers are eligible for a playoff berth. After the sixteenth race of the season, the 8 driver field is set for the Playoffs, any and all remaining spots are filled by drivers with the highest number of points without a win.

Playoffs

The Playoffs consist of 7 races and are divided into 3 parts – Round of 8, Round of 6, and Championship 4. Round of 8 and Round of 6 are elimination rounds where 2 drivers are eliminated and 4 drivers fight for the championship in the final race.
