Mack Trucks is the Official Hauler for Skip Barber Racing School


Greensboro, NC (March 6, 2023) – Mack Trucks announced today that it has signed a three-year partnership with Skip Barber Racing School (SBRS) to be its official hauler.

Mack will provide three Mack Anthem® models to Skip Barber Racing to support all divisions of the Skip Barber business, including the Race School, Race Series and Race Team. The Mack Anthem models will haul SBRS trailers containing up to eight vehicles, as well as racing support trailers that have a combination of office space, workspace, parts storage and additional space for cars.

“We are proud to support Skip Barber Racing, they are long standing leaders in high performance racing and driving education and the Mack Anthem will meet their long-haul needs.” said David Galbraith, vice president of global brand and marketing for Mack Trucks. “Our focus is building efficient, reliable high-performance trucks, in perfect alignment with the SBRS brand.”

All three Mack Anthem models are Viper Red 70-inch stand-up sleeper models with full aerodynamic fairings package including side, roof and chassis coverage for improved aerodynamics. They are powered by the efficient Mack® MP®8HE engine with 445 horsepower and 1,860 lb.-ft. of torque. Transferring that power to the wheels is a Mack mDRIVE™ 12-speed automated manual transmission.

“We look forward to seeing the Mack Anthems with the SBRS trailers on the road,” said Galbraith. “We are confident the SBRS team will appreciate the durability, comfort and innovation built into the Anthems.”

The SBRS fleet of Mack Anthem models is equipped with Mack Command Steer, a variable steering-assist system that uses multiple sensors to receive more than 2,000 inputs per second, and subtly adjusts steering for the driver by producing additional torque to the steering shaft. Command Steer suppresses steering feedback from uneven terrain such as dips, ruts and potholes. The system reacts to those inputs by smoothing the steering feedback and reducing steering wheel “kicks.” This results in a smoother experience and less fatigue for drivers.

The first Mack Anthem has been delivered to SBRS and can be seen hauling custom-wrapped SBRS trailers between tracks for the various racing events. The remaining two trucks will we delivered to SBRS in the second quarter of 2023.
