CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (June 28, 2017) – CBS Sports Network will broadcast round’s eleven and twelve of the 2017 SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks World Championship from Detroit, Michigan on Wednesday evening, June 28 at 10 P.M. ET (7 P.M. PT).
Join the voice of Stadium SUPER Trucks Sean Sermini, and his Australian mate Matt Naulty as they call all the high-flying action that took place at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix back on June 2 & 3.
Both races contested at the picturesque Belle Isle, located on the Detroit River in between the mainland United States and Canada, will be shown in their complete entirety.
Will Sheldon Creed conquer the Belle Isle Street Circuit with only one previous appearance at the track or can Matt Brabham repeat 2016 and sweep the entire weekend?
Young Guns Gavin Harlien and Jeff Hoffman will be out gunning for the top spot, as well as TEAM UFD with a high-powered contingency lead by savvy SST veteran Bill Hynes and Australian Paul Morris.
Atila Abreu of Brazil looks to make his first SST start, while Michigan native Aaron Bambach joins series regulars Erik Davis, and Arie Luyendyk Jr. for a Battle in Motor City.
Look for SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks to make their China debut during the month of July. Additional details regarding venues and dates will be announced shortly.

About SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks
Influenced by the former Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Racing Series, where drivers such as Gordon, Casey Mears and seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson got their start, Gordon created SST in response to the public’s overwhelming interest in trucks and off-road racing. His plan to re-launch the former stadium series has led to exciting racing on both asphalt and dirt, while producing one of the most extreme forms of action sports today.
Other than the trucks launching 20 feet in the air covering distances more than 150 feet, what sets the SST program apart from other series is the fact that all the SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition. Race winners are decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets. Drivers and their personal mechanics are assigned specific SST mechanics who together tune and make minor adjustments to the 600-horsepower trucks.
