IRVINGTON, Alabama (March 21, 2019) -- The return of the Bandit Big Rig Series to Mobile International Speedway in Irvington, Alabama is set for March 23, 2019. The biggest, baddest, semi trucks in the nation will do battle around the famed high banks of the Alabama half-mile.

Jason Johnson of the Bandit Series said, “We raced this southern favorite for the first
Time last year and didn’t know what to expect. The Mobile fans were awesome! The
racing was great, our truck show made its debut and we had a great turnout. Allen
Boles became the first ever semi truck feature winner at Mobile in the #3 Peterbilt.”

“We can’t wait to get back - it’s been a long Minnesota winter and we need to get out
and race.”

The Bandit Big Rig Series returns big rig tractor truck racing to the short track in the
United States. The series was designed to be affordable and accessible for anyone
Wishing to put together a race team.

Here is all the vital info you need if you plan on making the trip to see this exciting event.


Mobile International Speedway is a high-banked, half-mile asphalt oval located in Irvington, Alabama, just outside of the Mobile, Alabama city limits.

The turns are banked at 12 degrees, but for the Bandit Series, the biggest feature of the track will be the lack of an outside wall around the speedway (excluding the frontstretch in front of the grandstands).

Trucks will use all of the space available to race, and then some.
