August 21, 2019 – CAMS and SST can confirm today it has executed a three-year commercial rights agreement with Robby Gordon and Stadium SUPER Trucks, paving the way for the high-flying trucks to return to Australia as early as October 2019.

“The leadership at CAMS has always wanted to see the Stadium SUPER Trucks in Australia, and we are pleased to say that all of our safety concerns and related issues have been fully addressed and resolved.”

Stated CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca.

“There’s never been any doubt about the truck’s popularity here in Australia, and after months of discussions we are pleased to say SST racing is able to resume under CAMS.”

Nathan Cayzer, whom was an instrumental piece in bringing the SST Series to Australia in 2015 will continue to head all discussions around events and commercial partnerships in Australia.

“It is super exciting to be able to have SST return back to racing in Australia under the CAMS banner, an enormous amount of work has gone on behind the scenes for both parties to get to this point. With this positive result it is an overall win for all the supporters and motorsport fans of Australia,” Said Cayzer.

Robby Gordon and Stadium SUPER Trucks would like to thank Mr. Arocca and CAMS for their efforts in making this agreement a possibility and welcoming SST back to Australia under their sanctioning.

About SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks

Influenced by the former Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Racing Series, where drivers such as Rick Mears, four time Indy 500 Winner, Casey Mears NASCAR race winner, Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and Robby Gordon got their start, Gordon created SST in response to the public’s overwhelming interest in trucks and off-road racing. His plan to re-launch the former stadium series has led to exciting racing on both asphalt and dirt, while producing one of the most extreme forms of action sports today.

SST trucks have now evolved to race most of there events on pavement and set up portable ramps on street and road courses that launch the SST racers distances more than 150 feet, what sets the SST program apart from other series is the fact that all the SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition. Race winners are decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets. Drivers and their personal mechanics are assigned specific SST mechanics who together tune and make minor adjustments to the 600-horsepower trucks.

Robby Gordon Wins Mid-Ohio Race 1

Robby Goordon Mid-Ohio

Lexington, Ohio (August 10, 2019) – Returning back to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the second time in three weeks Robby Gordon would withstand a contact filled Stadium SUPER Trucks Round No. 11 to capture his first SST win of 2019. First starter Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania would jump out to the early lead in his United Fiber & Data truck before Casey Mears of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the bright yellow SPEED Energy entry this weekend would quickly apply pressure and drive past into the lead.

As the field worked thru only two corners things quickly escalated as Scottsdale, Arizona driver Cole Potts would make contact with Inman Park, Georgia driver Ryan Eversley upon landing of the KMC Wheels jump. The contact would send Eversley and the Continental Tires truck sliding across the track into the Toyo Tires entry of Jeff Hoffman. The two trucks would slide off the track thru the grass into the sand pit where Eversley’s Continental Terrian Contact A/T tires would bite into the dirt causing the truck to roll over twice. Landing on the wheels in stuntman form Eversley would continue on with the race.

At the start of Lap-2 Mears would continue to increase a sizeable lead on the rest of the field as third starting Robby Gordon of Orange, California would move into the second position as fast qualifier and current Stadium SUPER Trucks points leader Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia was right there banging on the door of the leaders looking to challenge for the top positions. Seventh starting Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the Security State Bank truck was also on the move as he followed Brabham to the front of the field before moving past him and setting his sights on Gordon for the second spot.

A caution would wave over the track on Lap-4 bunching the field back up for a restart.
Mears would quickly jump back out to the lead, as Potts would battle hard with Gordon for the second spot. The two drivers would trade the position multiple times until Potts would drift high into the grass and loose two positions.
The start of Lap-6 would see Gordon look to apply pressure to Mears for the lead. Going side by side off the KMC Wheels ramp Gordon would use all of the racing surface and more completely the pass on Mears. However, at this point of the race you could not count out the ultra fast truck of Potts as he was back in striking distance of the leaders, and quickly setting his sights on Gordon for the lead.

Going side-by-side with one another Gordon would out brake Potts for the position, but the young Arizona driver would look to bang doors with the off-road veteran the next corner. The contact between the two drivers would send Potts in a spin cycle loosing multiple positions. This would open the door for Phoenix, Arizona driver Jeff Hoffman at the start of Lap-8, Hoffman would battle his way back into contention after the mishap with Eversley on the first lap. The driver of the Toyo Tires truck would pull up along side Gordon for the lead and out brake him into the corner to over take the top position from the bright orange SPEED Energy truck.

As caution would wave over the field, Hoffman would prepare himself for a good restart with only three laps remaining, but Gordon would quickly have something to say about that looking to challenge Hoffman for the lead right away. Hoffman would miss his braking mark and drift wide into the grass allowing Gordon to go back to the lead.
Hanging on in the top four Brabham was doing all he could do to remain there as he would begin to encounter brake issues bouncing off every truck he could to point his truck in the right direction. As the truck became an extreme handful Brabham would drop back in the field and out of contention.

The last lap would see Potts go side by side with Gordon for the lead in the same exact fashion he did with Greg Biffle just two weeks ago. Out jumping Gordon off the KMC Wheels ramp Potts would power to the outside of Gordon for the lead. Gordon would battle back and make contact with Potts sending him into the grass. Potts would then decide to take a short cut cutting significant distance of the racecourse.

Gordon would go on to win his first race of the 2019 Stadium SUPER Trucks Championship, while capturing his twentieth win of his career. Mears would capture his first ever SST podium position in the second position, while Potts would right his truck to round out the top three. After the completion of the event USAC Officials would apply a penalty of one position to the No. 60 truck of Cole Potts for not getting back on the racecourse in the closest point where he went off track.

From flipping over on the first lap and battling thru the entire field avoiding the chaos all around him the Continental Tires truck of Ryan Eversley would wind up with his first Stadium SUPER Trucks podium as in the final run down after the penalty was applied to Potts. Hoffman crucial mistakes the last two laps would eliminate him from podium contention and loose lots of ground to the leaders. At the finish of the scheduled laps Hoffman would be scored in the fifth position.

As Brabham went from challenging for the win to just hanging on to his truck to remain on course as he would loose his brakes, and begin to become a bowling ball banging into any truck he can to get his turned in the right direction. As the checkered flag would fly Brabham would be credited with the sixth spot.

Gavin Harlien driving the VP Fuels & Lubricants truck would start from the fifth position but would encounter unfortunate luck once again at Mid-Ohio landing awkwardly off the first jump trying to avoid the spinning trucks in front of him. In the process Harlien would knock a belt off the motor causing the truck to limp around back to the pit lane. SST technicians would be able to put the belt back on and Harlien would be able to return to the track for the last segment and finish the race but would be scored in the seventh spot.

First starting Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania would quickly relinquish the lead to Casey Mears and fall in line behind him on Lap-1. Hanging strong in the top five the next lap before dropping back in the pack after missing his braking mark and running wide. Hynes would keep the United Fiber & Data truck clean and go on to finish the race in the eighth position.

Current SST point leader Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia however was the man on the move quickly moving up into the fourth position for his eighth starting spot, and looking to be in the mix of the leaders early in the race.

The restart of the second segment allowed Brabham and Hoffman battle hard for the second position, as the two would begin to push it harder with one another. Going side by side multiple times Hoffman would hold off the hard charging Brabham.

Stalking the Toyo Tire tracks of Hoffman, Brabham would use the draft to his advantage slinging past Hoffman for the second position at the start of Lap-9.

Meanwhile, Hoffman and Brabham would battle hard with one another Harlien was on cruise control out front until Brabham would gain his opportunity at the restart the third segment as he would line up directly on Harlien’s rear bumper.

Brabham would make many attempts to move past Harlien the final two circuits looking to move to the inside and outside, but each attempt denied as Harlien would hold him off as thousands of fans cheered loudly.

As the checkered flag waved Harlien would go on to capture his first SST victory of the season ahead of Brabham, and Hoffman who would round out the podium.

Biffle would pull to the pit lane to have SST technicians look at the truck for damage. With only a bent rear bumper Biffle would continue the race. Running consistent laps without trouble Biffle would be able to make his plan to advance after the conclusion of the second segment. Biffle would hold a great side by side battle for Cole Potts for the fourth position as the two would go side by side for multiple corners. Coming to the finish line Biffle would sneak ahead of Potts in the finishing order.

Saturday’s race winner Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the Security State Bank truck would start Sunday’s race from the sixth position and quickly move forward by Lap-2. However, Potts would make contact with fellow Scottsdale native Arie Luyendyk Jr. Both trucks would slide into the grass losing multiple positions.

Remaining patient Potts would be able to work his way back into the fourth position by Lap-8 setting up a great battle for the third position after the second competition caution.

Cole Potts Wins Mid-Ohio Race 1

Cole Potts

Lexington, Ohio (July 27, 2019)- Cole Potts would out duel Greg Biffle with an incredible pass to the outside of the KMC Wheels ramp in the last segment to capture Stadium SUPER Trucks first ever event at the Mid-Ohio Sport Car Course.

Race pole sitter Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania would jump out to the early lead in his bright blue United Fiber & Data truck before Gavin Harlien of Mesa, Arizona driving the VP Racing Fuels & Lubricants entry would quickly apply pressure and drive past into the lead at the close of the first lap.

On the next lap Vancouver, Washington driver Greg Biffle making his third ever SST start would pull up along side Harlien, and battle him for the lead. As the two banged doors with one another Biffle would pull out front for a brief second but only for Harlien to battle back and regain the position. Biffle would slide wide into the grass and loose a position to Scottsdale, Arizona driver Arie Luyendyk Jr.

As Harlien would start to pull away from the field, the race for the second position started to heat up as Cole Potts would move the Security State Bank truck in the mix with Luyendyk and Biffle.

After the first competition caution on Biffle would work his way back close enough to battle Harlien for the lead. As the two once again would bang doors Harlien would develop a problem and drop back out of the mix. Biffle would inherit the lead for the next three laps as Potts would move past Luyendyk for the second position.

As the final competition caution would wave Potts would strike immediately working his way to the outside of the KMC Wheels ramp exiting the keyhole turn to catapult his truck into the lead past Biffle for the lead.

Potts would waste no time working his way out to the size able lead the final two circuits.

Friday’s fast qualifier and current Stadium SUPER Trucks points leader Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia would start the race with a conservative approach for the first portion of the race from his eighth starting spot as he normally does, but this race proved to be a bit different for Brabham as he found himself in the fourth position after just four laps. After working past Luyendyk Jr. for the third position the driver of the Carlisle/Headstrong entry would need to hold off challenges from Robby Gordon the next several laps to remain in the third position as Potts and Biffle just were too fast for Brabham to track down.

Potts would go on to win his second SST race of the year ahead of Biffle and third finishing Brabham.

Second fastest in Friday qualifying Robby Gordon of Orange, California driving his familiar bright Orange SPEED Energy truck would lurk mid-pack for majority of the race letting things sort themselves out. After the second competition caution Gordon would make his move battling hard with Brabham and Hoffman for third. As the checkered flag flew over the field Gordon would finish behind Brabham in fourth.

Toyo Tires driver Jeff Hoffman of Phoenix, Arizona would encounter problems from the start of the race falling back from his sixth starting position. The driver whom was third fastest in qualifying would go off the track and fade to the back for first eight laps. Hoffman would look to make his move after the second competition caution ultimately finishing in the fifth spot.

Scottsdale, Arizona driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. driving the bright yellow SPEED Energy entry this weekend would immediately move his truck to the front of the field from his fifth starting position, and remain in the second spot for the first four laps. But as is the case in SST racing maintaining your equipment throughout the race is half the challenge, Luyendyk would over heat his brakes and begin to fade to the back of the pack. Luyendyk Jr. would be scored in the sixth position in his first SST race of the 2019 season.

After leading the majority of the first lap before being passed by Harlien, Bill Hynes would hang strong in the top five the next lap before dropping back in the pack after missing his braking mark and running wide. Hynes would go on to finish the race in the seventh position.

After leading majority of the race Harlien would develop a fuel pressure issue on Lap-6 as his trucks engine would start stumbling. Harlien would pull into the pit lane to see if the SST technicians could diagnose the problem. After having a great beginning to the race Harlien would complete the required amount of laps off the pace in the eighth position.

SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Race 2 will be contested Sunday afternoon at 12:35 P.M. local time prior to the start of the NTT IndyCar Series Honda Indy 200.
