In June, the new SRX Series will make it’s debut in the racing world. The Superstar Racing Experience will highlight a wide range of drivers on dirt and asphalt short tracks.
Every race will be aired live via CBS Sports.
It’s a spec chassis series. All cars are the same and drivers are limited to a handful of adjustments.
A few weeks ago, the SRX car was unloaded for various test sessions. Watch the video below of the car at Eldora Speedway.
