Grammer Truck CupEdit

From 2017, the series began running the Grammer Truck Cup within the regular drivers' championship. The competition is reserved for drivers given a "Chrome" rating by the sanctioning body; drivers are considered "Chrome" unless their past performance merits the rank of "Titan".1
