Lake Elsinore, California (December 13, 2017) – Stadium SUPER Trucks Officials announced today that multi-time SX and MX Champion Ryan Villopoto will make his first ever start in an SST truck this weekend at the SST Race & Rock World Championship in Lake Elsinore, California.

“I’m excited to get behind the wheel of a off-road truck again, I haven’t had many chances to drive, but the few I have had it’s been an absolute blast. I’ve been following what Robby Gordon has been doing with Stadium SUPER Trucks for some time now, and to have an opportunity to drive one of those trucks with some of the best names in the sport is truly an honor.” Stated Villopoto.

Villopoto’s No. 2 truck is supported by Bristol; Tennessee based RPM Off-Road, an after-market truck and diesel specialty store offering sales and services in house and online.

Joining Villopoto on the RPM Off-Road team will be 2017 Baja 1000 Winner Apdaly Lopez, and the first female to compete in Stadium SUPER Trucks; Sara Price.

Robby Gordon and Toyo Tires Fastest in 50th Annual Baja 1000 Qualifying

rg4

LAS VEGAS (November 1, 2017) – For the fourth straight year Baja 1000 qualifying was held in Las Vegas, Nevada on Halloween in conjunction with the SCORE International off-road experience at the world renown SEMA show, the largest automobile aftermarket show in the world.

Displaying various Halloween silhouettes all over the familiar bright orange SPEED Energy/ Toyo Tires/ KMC Wheels/ Textron Off-Road Trophy Truck, Robby Gordon and son Max Gordon would look to record the best time of three laps on the short course track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Rolling out as the tenth driver to record time Gordon would navigate the tight and tricky course in a time of 2 minutes and 52 seconds to immediately jump to the top of the leader board. With some of the top competitors yet to take to the track Gordon, and the SPEED Energy crew would carefully watch on edge, as each competitor would register times.

After the final checkered flag flew on the qualifying session a very excited Robby Gordon remained at the top of the leader board, and had the following to say about his qualifying lap that literally dusted the entire facility.

“The SPEED Energy/ Toyo Tires team is very proud to be starting first in the crown jewel of all desert races the 50 Anniversary of the Baja 1000. The team has put a lot of effort into our qualifying and race set up over the course of the last few months with extra testing and time spent in the shop. I feel this is one of the best-prepared efforts we have ever had for the Baja 1000. The SPEED Energy/ Toyo Tires team is going to enjoy the security of starting first for the next 15 days, but will also continue to prepare, prepare, prepare as there is 20-25 of the best drivers in the world gunning for us on race day. In the Baja 1000 the smallest of mistakes could cost you the entire race and months of preparation. I’m confident with the plan we have in place the familiar Orange and Black SPEED Energy truck will be a serious threat for Victory.”

The 50th running of the SCORE Baja 1000 will take place November 14-18, 2017 starting in Enscenada, B.C., Mexico and will go 1,134.4 miles down the Baja Peninsula finishing in the Southern Baja California Sur city of La Paz.
