2014 Super Truck Champion

Background

"2017 marks the return and rookie season for Nelson Racing and driver Tim Nelson in the PRO 2WD class. After sitting out the past season the team is eager to get back on the track and behind the wheel.

From an early age racing off-road trucks was always a dream for Tim Nelson. ""I would buy any magazine related to truck racing and flip through the pages and day dream of flying through the desert at 100 miles per hour or racing short course at the Coliseum in Los Angeles,"" said Nelson. When an opportunity presented itself in the winter of 2012 that dream was about to come true for Nelson. He and his father purchased a rolling chassis and worked thru the winter and spring to have the truck ready for the upcoming season. Tim Nelson made his racing debut in 2013 in the TORC series competing in the sportsman super truck class and over the course of the next three years racked up 5 first place finishes, 17 podium finishes, was super truck world champion in 2014 and finished second in points for 2015. ""With hard work, dedication and a bit of patience comes great things,"" said Nelson ""I can't wait for the season to start, 2017 is going to be a great year of racing."
