SST Returns To Long Beach In 2019

Long Beach 2019

LONG BEACH, Calif. (Dec. 3, 2018) – The Grand Prix Association of Long Beach announced today that Robby Gordon’s SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks series has signed a multi-year agreement to return and race at the Grand Prix of Long Beach starting in 2019.

​Very popular with Grand Prix fans, the Stadium SUPER Trucks series features high-horsepower trucks that not only race around the world-famous 1.97-mile, 11-turn Grand Prix racetrack but also jump high in the air utilizing a series of temporary ramps placed throughout the circuit.

​The SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks will run practice and qualifying on Friday with races on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Last year, Gavin Harlien (Sat.) and Matt Brabham (Sun.) earned Long Beach wins.

“To be able to come back and continue our great relationship with the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach for the seventh consecutive year is something awesome,” said Gordon. “The venue location, the atmosphere, the excitement, and fun make the Grand Prix of Long Beach one of the premier events in the world, and Stadium SUPER Trucks is excited to have it on the schedule for 2019 with a new multi-year deal.”

“I know our fans will be delighted to have the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks back at Long Beach this year,” said Jim Michaelian, president and CEO of the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach. “For many years, they have proved to be a thrilling attraction and a highlight of the race weekend.”

​Featuring a wide variety of on- and off-track activities for the entire family, the Grand Prix will be headlined by the IndyCar Series, as well as the BUBBA burger Sports Car Grand Prix, featuring the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. In addition to the Stadium SUPER Trucks, the weekend will include the Motegi Racing Super Drift Challenge under the lights on Friday and Saturday nights, the powerful sports cars of the Pirelli World Challenge and the Historic IMSA GTO Challenge.

Ticket prices for the three-day event, which have not increased from 2018, range from $33 for a Friday General Admission ticket to $147 for a three-day ticket that includes Saturday and Sunday reserved seating in grandstand upper levels. Pre-paid parking packages are also available, along with handicapped seating, IndyCar Series Paddock access passes, Super Photo tickets and an array of VIP Club packages.

Fans can select and pay for their Grand Prix of Long Beach seats, parking and paddock passes online at gplb.com. Ticket orders can also be placed by calling the toll-free ticket hotline, (888) 827-7333. A printed ticket brochure that includes a circuit map, ticket prices, order form and other information is also available.

Fans can also follow the Grand Prix of Long Beach on Facebook at GrandPrixLB, Twitter @GPLongBeach and Instagram at GPLongBeach.

SST TO RACE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA OCTOBER 26-28

SMP Logo

The Boost Mobile Stadium Super Trucks series will compete at Sydney Motorsport Park as part of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) program next week.

To be held over the October 26-28 weekend, it will come a week after the series was scheduled to compete as part of the supporting cast to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship at the Vodafone Gold Coast 600.

SST was replaced on the bill by the Kumho Tyres Touring Car Series after CAMS suspended its Australian competition licence.

The AMRS is unaffiliated with CAMS, as it is run by the Benalla Auto Club-owned (BAC) Australian Auto Sport Alliance, and therefore can allow the category to compete.

“We are super excited to be able to give Australia what they want and that is for us to race,” said SST owner and competitor Robby Gordon.

“I want to thank Chris (Lewis-Williams, BAC CEO), Wayne (Williams, AMRS manager) and the team for asking us to come on board as part of the program, all of our sponsors and drivers are excited and looking forward to doing battle at the exciting Sydney Motorsport Park track.”

Williams hailed the addition of SST, which has not held an Australian round away from the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship since 2015, to the AMRS program.

“Everywhere they go, the Stadium Super Trucks pull a massive crowd, and we can’t wait to have them at Sydney Motorsport Park,” said Williams.

“They will put on a spectacular show for everyone watching, whether they’re at the track or viewing the live stream.

“Over the last couple of weeks, it’s no secret that Stadium Super Trucks has had to make some last-minute changes to their 2018 schedule, so we’re thrilled to have offered SST a place to compete and add them to our event program.”

Lewis-Williams is confident that the trucks are safe to race at a permanent circuit such as Sydney Motorsport Park after modifications which organisers made in light of the CAMS suspension.

“Sydney Motorsport Park is a very different venue to a street circuit, and the AASA and our insurers are comfortable with the work Stadium Super Trucks have done on addressing any safety concerns, such as improving the strength of the wheels and incorporating a new locking section for the body work,” he said.

“The Stadium Super Trucks are closely aligned to another series that the AASA sanctions, the ARB Australian Off Road Racing Championship, so we’re aware of the strength of the vehicles and similarity of those vehicles to the Stadium Super Trucks.

“Our job at the AASA is to assist categories to go racing and that’s the opportunity we’ve been able to create for Stadium Super Trucks who want to keep racing in Australia.

“Although one avenue (Gold Coast) was shut down, that’s the beauty of having choice in the market, there is an alternate sanctioning body to give categories an opportunity to make a choice about how they want their motor racing to be run.

“The AASA and AMRS are completely aware of the popularity of Stadium Super Trucks and are pleased we’re able to give them an opportunity to continue racing here.”

Defending champion Paul Morris also welcomed the news.

“It’s awesome to be able to race in Australia in the Stadium Super Trucks at Sydney Motorsport Park next weekend,” said Morris.

“It’s extremely obvious from the public backlash that motorsport fans want to see us race and see the series continue to compete in Australia.”

The occasion will be the first time that Stadium Super Trucks has raced at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Its previous appearances in the Harbour City both came in 2015, at Sydney Speedway near Parramatta and at the Sydney 500 at Olympic Park.

By joining the AMRS bill, SST will share the weekend with 10 other categories, which include the GT-1 Australia, Australian Formula Ford, and Performax TA2 Muscle Car Series, with Sunday’s racing to be live streamed.

The news comes after Peter Adderton, founder of the series new Australian naming rights sponsor, criticised CAMS for what he claimed is an ongoing failure to disclose to SST exactly how the series can comply with the governing body’s safety requirements.

CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca claims that SST has in fact been informed and that he would not discuss the matter with a sponsor.

Matt Brabham leads the series with one more event set to come, at Glen Helen Raceway in California, after Sydney.
