SUPER STREET GAS 4×4 TRUCK CLASS
2019 Champion Mike Lockwood and “Back N Black”
The SUPER STREET GAS 4×4 TRUCK is a class built for hot running trucks with under 540 cubic inches under the hood. Super Street 4×4 GAS Trucks began pulling with USA-EAST for the first time in 2013. The class has developed into one of the most competitive USA-EAST divisions with Chevrolet and Ford and Dodge all represented in this high-powered class.
New rules developed a few years ago were designed to allow more trucks to compete with the SUPER STREET class in that season. The 454 Chevrolet and the 460 Ford engines along with the 440 Mopar are the dominators in this class that runs at 6300 pounds. Diesel trucks have been restricted from this class since 2007 and thus the class is strictly for gasoline 4x4s. Front end weights are permitted in this division but local trucks are still welcome.
Mike Lockwood from Hadley, Pennsylvania claimed the 2019 championship with the Super Street Gasoline division. His 540 cubic inch Chevrolet emerged as the top truck in a very close point race marred by a number of rain-outs including the ‘finals’ at Meadville in late August. Lockwood is a former champion drag racer who has brought his motor sport expertise over to the truck pulling sport and done very well.
Local owners of the gasoline-powered pickup trucks are welcome to enter the SUPER STREET GASOLINE class when it comes to their town, but they will have to face some hard-charging trucks that will be following the entire season of events. All trucks that are “running for the points” must be members of the USA-EAST sanctioning body in order to collect series’ points. See www.USA- EAST.com for membership information.
Cen.Pe.Co. Lubricants of Cleveland, Ohio and Wolcott, Iowa supplies their ‘bonus bucks’ to supplement the point fund for the Super Street Gas 4×4 division.
