SUPER Buggy Class added to Stadium SUPER Trucks Series

StadiumBuggy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (February 12, 2013) – Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD Stadium SUPER Trucks™ announced today the addition of the lightning-quick SUPER Buggy class to the Inaugural 2013 season. The SUPER Buggy is an off-road racing class similar to one of the popular Super 1600 Buggies that used to compete in Mickey Thompson’s Off-Road Racing Series more than 25 years ago.

The eagerly anticipated SUPER Buggy debuts April 6 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. and will also feature racing from BIGFOOT® Monster Trucks as well as the Stadium SUPER Trucks, the main feature of the series.

“The Super 1600 buggies is where a lot of successful racers started their careers,” said Series President, Robby Gordon. “It’s a really popular class, and I’m hoping our SUPER Buggies can launch some of these guys careers like it did for myself, Bob Gordon, Jerry Whelchel, Marty Coyne, Marty Hart, Marty Tripes, Bob Hannah, Frank Arciero Jr. and more. With our series showcased in the best venues across the country, there’s no other place where this class can race and get this type of exposure. Guys will race for $5,000 going to the winner with second place earning $2,500 and third getting $1,500, all while being televised on NBC. Adding another competitive class to SST will bring great drivers and teams that will make for exciting racing that fans will really enjoy.”

The new SUPER Buggy is an open-wheel buggy, very similar to the familiar Pro Buggy Unlimited class that features a motor with approximately 210 horsepower. With a maximum track width of 93” and only weighing a minimum of 1800lbs., this class is a stepping-stone for young guns and a playground for off-road veterans to showcase their skills in front of thousands of fans in first class stadiums.

Registration for the SUPER Buggy class will be available for participants to sign up for the 2013 Championship season soon at http://www.usacracing.org.

STADIUM SUPER TRUCKS CHASSIS #22 NEARS COMPLETION

chassisheader

Charlotte, N.C. (January 31) – Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD’s Stadium SUPER Trucks, which will begin its inaugural season of thrilling, stadium style off-road racing on April 6 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. announced this week that production of these one-of-a-kind race vehicles is ahead of schedule.

“We have been working long hours for months, and there will be 30 complete trucks ready to compete at Phoenix. The craftsmanship and build of the Stadium SUPER Truck is something we take enormous pride in at Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD,” said Shane Bourgeois, lead mechanic.

Bourgeois added that 22 chassis are through production at Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD’s state of the art, 100,000 square foot facility in Charlotte, NC. Each truck is being constructed to a design spec exclusive to Stadium SUPER Trucks.

“I’ve been thinking about Stadium SUPER Trucks for 20 years; it is a place where I started my career and I have always dreamed of bringing it back one day,” said Series President, Robby Gordon. “This is a platform for athletes from all types of sports that can come and be competitive. Being that all trucks are built the same, it comes down to the driver’s athletic ability to perform. We are confident in putting on a great race and quality entertainment for the fans. I cannot wait to start the season on April 6 at University of Phoenix Stadium.”

Designed to resemble a Traxxas remote control “Slash” truck, the Stadium SUPER Truck is the life size model of the popular RC version. Its unique specifications are something that has not been seen in off-road racing since the Mickey Thompson off-road era. Sitting on 35” DOT approved tires; the truck features a wheel-base of 104” with a stance only 71” wide. This two-wheel drive vehicle featuring a 2 or 3 speed transmission (pending track configuration) offers 18” of wheel travel in the front and 24” in the rear allowing the truck to soar over large jumps and land with authority. The 600 hp EFI V-8 powered trucks weigh 3000 lbs making the power to weight ratio of .20 compared to short-course’s Pro 2 that has 800 hp but weighs 4200 lbs with a power to weight ratio of .19. With the SST’s lower center of gravity, it’s an advantage over any Pro Lite, Pro 2, and Pro 4 in short course racing today.

He will have his fans help him, and, in return, they will have their photo, among possibly thousands of others, placed on his Stadium SUPER Truck. A website specifically dedicated to crowdfunding is in place and donations are currently streaming in on behalf of the driver; www.arietruck.com

He was voted Indy Lights “Most Popular Driver” four years in a row from 2003-06.

More recently, Luyendyk Jr. might even be more widely noted for placing second on the eighth season of the reality show The Bachelorette, in which he was attempting to win the heart of bachelorette Emily Maynard.

“Doing what you love is most important and racing is my life, my passion,” said Luyendyk. “The thrill I get when I’m racing is indescribable. I’ve always wanted to be able to better share that experience with the fans.

“I think with this (fan) initiative, a part of everyone will be right there racing for the win with me,” he said. “We’ll be in it together as a team. Thank you in advance and I’ll see you at a Stadium Super Truck race this season!”
