Burt Jenner, the son of high profile transgender figure Caitlyn Jenner, headlines the Stadium Super Truck field at this weekend’s Castrol Gold Coast 600.

Jenner is among the American contingent spearheaded by Super Trucks founder Robby Gordon, Sheldon Creed, Keegan Kincaid, Scotty Steele and Bill Hynes.

While Gordon, Creed and Kincaid were all in the field of Super Trucks that proved a smash hit at the Clipsal 500 earlier this year, Jenner will be making his Australian competition debut.

The 36-year-old Jenner, whose father Bruce won the decathlon gold medal at the 1976 Montreal Olympics and is currently a reality TV star as Caitlyn, has been successful in the US this year winning a race at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.
