Pickup Trucks Can Claim a Storied History!



By Kevin Schwarze

The ARCA Truck Series, presented by the Phoenix Management Group, will begin its 13th season of competition, as well as staging its 150th race! There have been many exciting moments in what started out in 1999 as the ARCA Pro-4 Series and then evolved into the current form we know today.

As well, pickup trucks, which the ARCA Truck Series currently campaigns, can claim a storied history! No one can honestly claim the invention of the first wagon, but one of the most successful companies to produce an open box cargo hauler was founded by the Studebaker Brothers in 1852 and whose father grew up in Ohio. By 1902, Studebaker was building electric cars and in two years was putting out gasoline models of their wagons.
