MADISON, Ill. (KSDK) – There are fewer than 40 places in North America with a NASCAR event, and Gateway Motorsports Park is one of them.

The Truck Series comes here on June 14. The official title of the race is "Drivin' For Lineman 200."

The NASCAR contingent came to St. Louis this week for a sight visit – about 20 of them were on hand.

They checked out every area of the place, including the garages.

The series is a big deal, and in June, it could have a $10 million economic impact. The trucks are also driven by some pretty skilled drivers.

NewsChannel 5's Frank Cusumano has a look in the video above.
