Rights Deal Signed For Stadium Super Trucks In Australia

Boost Mobile boss Peter Adderton has signed a three-year rights deal for Stadium Super Trucks in Australia and is in discussion with Supercars management to make them a regular support act at major events in 2019 and beyond.

The Boost Mobile Group, which is a major sponsor of Walkinshaw Andretti United, has penned the deal with SST creator Robby Gordon with the idea of giving the category stability and a bigger presence in Australia.

It is believed that Adderton met with Supercars boss Sean Seamer at the Australian Grand Prix in March and the basis of those conversations encouraged him to further negotiations with Gordon.

A dynamic marketer, Adderton has already started building a management team and wants to meet with Supercars bosses as soon as possible in an effort to get a 2019 calendar confirmed.

Adderton has employed former Adelaide 500 General Manager Nathan Cayzer to head-up the new championship, while the logistics will be handled by Paul Morris Motorsport at this Norwell Motorplex on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Cayzer and former Adelaide 500 co-worker Craig Dontas brought Stadium Super Trucks series to Australia back 2015 after meeting with Robby Gordon at the 2014 Long Beach Indycar event.

The Supercars event wish list includes the Australian Grand Prix, Perth, Darwin, Townsville, Gold Coast and Newcastle.

There has also been discussions of a dirt/tarmac event under lights at the new Tailem Bend circuit in South Australia and a possible link with the XGames, which will be held in Australia for the next three years.

“I can confirm that we have the SST rights in Australia for the next three years,” said Adderton.

“What we do with them and what the final championship looks like is in the hands of third parties, including Supercars, who we are looking forward to sitting down with again.

“So many people have identified the potential of the Stadium Super Trucks, but we have done something about it.

“Whether Supercars want to play ball with us or not, we will be taking Stadium Super Trucks to a whole new level in this country and building on what is already a large, young and engaged audience.

“Watching these SST trucks for the first time, the crowd reaction was a real eye opener for me and I believe the motorsport fans deserved more than just three events .”

It is believed that a couple of stadium events are also planned as part of the Australian championship, but there will be a series of standalone events if an agreement cannot be reached for an extension of the current Supercars program.

While a non-traditional form of motorsport, the SST races have been a massive hit with fans on both sides of the Pacific.

The popularity has not only been through fans on track, but through a massive social media following which is one of the largest in world motorsports.

Adderton used motocross and off-road events in the US to build his Boost Mobile brand and has relationships with high-profile competitors like Chad Reed, Toby Price, and Robby Maddison, who could all possibly make appearances in the Australian championship.

Matt Brabham and DeVilbiss Grab Victory at the Grand Prix of Long Beach Finale

Matt Brabham captured victory in the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks race No. 2 at the Grand Prix of Long Beach Sunday in convincing fashion. Leaving the thousands of fans whom lined the 11 turn 1.968-mile street circuit on their feet the entire race in pure amazement how thrilling Stadium SUPER Truck races truly are.

SST Rookie Cole Pott’s of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the HallmarkTrust.com entry would work his way past truck after truck from his eighth starting position into the fourth position by Lap-4.

Following Potts to the front of the field was the twelfth starting Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia driving the DeVilbiss/Headstrong entry. Brabham put on an amazing display of driving making his way from the rear of the field all the way to the sixth position by Lap-2.

Right before the competition caution would wave over the field on Lap-4 Brabham would sneak around the Potts truck for the fourth position.

However, Brabham did not stop as he would move past Aaron Bambach for the third position a lap later, and then set his sights on the LIVE teammates of Paul Morris and Jeff Hoffman to grab the lead on Lap-7.

As the second competition caution would wave over the field Brabham would use that as his opportunity to separate himself from the rest of the field, and 2017 SST World Championship Runner-Up did just that pulling away to a sizeable distance away from second and third place.

On the re-start Potts would look to work his way around Yucca Valley, California’s Blade Hildebrand whom was running a career best in the second position. Hildebrand would slip up the track in the corner allowing Potts to move by into the second spot setting his sights on the lead position.

Thirteenth starting Gavin Harlien of Mesa, Arizona driving the United Fiber & Data entry would patiently wait for the openings created by Brabham as the two picked off truck after truck moving through the field towards the front.

Saturday’s race winner has raced very well at Long Beach over the course of five previously contested events, and today would prove to be no different as Harlien would place himself in all the right places at the right time avoiding contact, and making good clean passes to move himself into the third position on the final lap. Brabham and Potts however were just too far ahead for Harlien to catch them.

Brabham would capture his second SST victory at Long Beach ahead of Potts, and Harlien who would round out the podium.

Orange, California driver Robby Gordon sporting the Toyo Tires/ KMC Wheels livery this weekend would hang back in the pack waiting for things to sort out avoiding all of the carnage the first half of the race. After the competition caution Gordon would continue to pick off truck after truck thru the field to ultimately finish in the fourth position after contesting Harlien multiple times for the third spot.

Paul Morris of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia would move into the second position early in the event from his fourth starting position, but the savy Australian motorsports legend would fade back a few positions at the end of the race getting credited with the fifth position at the finish.

Today’s pole sitter Aaron Bambach of Rochester Hills, Michigan driving the Strategic Staffing Solutions truck would lead the first three laps of the race before Jeff Hoffman and Paul Morris would slip by sending Bambach back to the third position. Hanging around the top-five majority of the race Bambach would loose the fifth spot to Paul Morris on the last lap. Bambach would go on to get credited with the sixth spot.

Davey Hamilton Jr. of Indianapolis, Indiana driving the VP Racing Fuel and Lubricants/ Always Evolving truck would run a smart race battling mid-pack admits the chaos for majority of the race. Keeping his truck pointed in the right direction for all eleven laps Hamilton would go on to finish respectively in the seventh position.

Burbank, Calif. driver Erik Davis in just his second start in Stadium SUPER Trucks of 2018 would put himself in the right positions at the right time on Sunday hitting his marks and driving a super clean race avoiding all the carnage around him. Davis would drive his Always Evolving/Assault Industries truck to a very respectable eighth place finish.

After becoming the highlight of Saturday’s first race after rolling his SPEED Energy/ RPM Off-Road truck down the front stretch multiple times Apdaly Lopez would look to gain redemption from his second starting position on Sunday. Things did not go much better as Lopez would fade to the back of the pack after a few laps and make contact with Troy Diede. Lopez would go on to be credited with the ninth position.

Third Starting Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania driving the United Fiber and Data/ Think Loud Development entry would drive a clean race and stay out of trouble bringing the No. 57 across the finish line in the tenth place.

Blade Hildebrand of Yucca Valley, California driving the Empire Destructive/ HeatWave truck would run a great race batting Jeff Hoffman hard for the third position mid race before the two would become locked together on Lap-8. Both drivers would need to come to a complete stop to become untangled loosing multiple positions in the process. Hildebrand would go on to be credited with thirteenth place.

Phoenix, Arizona driver Jeff Hoffman driving the LIVE truck would show strong signs of competing for a podium early in the event running in the top three, and at one point was even scored as the leader at the first competition caution. But in Stadium SUPER Trucks racing things happen unexpectedly and as Hoffman and Blade Hildebrand were battling hard for position Hoffman would get the bad end of the deal loosing multiple positions after getting spun out by Hildebrand.

Lodi, California driver Troy Diede would encounter all kinds of issues in today’s event. First he would make contact with Apdaly Lopez going flipping over and landing back on his wheels. Next he would loose the handle on his Diede Construction truck on Lap-7 backing it hard into the tire barrier causing extensive damage to the fuel cell. Going over the jumps the fuel cell became more and more loose to continue safely ultimately having USAC officials to make the call to have Diede pull to the side of the track, and be scored in the twelfth position.

Eleventh starting Arie Luyendyk Jr. of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the United Fiber & Data/ Think Loud Development truck would loose a drive shaft on Lap-5 ending his day early, crediting him with the fourteenth position.

The overall standings for the two races of the Grand Prix of Long Beach would see Matt Brabham and Robby Gordon tie for the overall weekend points championship. With Brabham’s fourth place finish on Saturday, and victory on Sunday he would win the tiebreaker for a better finish in Sunday’s event. Saturday’s race winner Gavin Harlien would round on the third position.

The next event in the season-long SST World Championship will see the thrills and spills of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks return to Barbagallo Raceway in Perth, Western Australia; May 4-6 for rounds seven and eight.

Gavin Harlien and United Fiber & Data Grab Victory at the Grand Prix of Long Beach

LONG BEACH, Calif. (April 13, 2018) – Gavin Harlien of Mesa, Arizona managed to avoid the carnage in the first half of the race to work his way past competitor after competitor and hold off a late charge by Robby Gordon to earn his first SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks victory.

Pole sitter Arie Luyendyk Jr. who would encounter mechanical issues during qualifying would start from the first position, and immediately jump out to a sizable lead in front of third starting Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania driving the United Fiber and Data entry.

As Luyendyk would pull away, the man on the move was United Fiber & Data teammate Gavin Harlien who would move past truck after truck from his eleventh starting position to move into contention with the lead pack. Harlien whom has shown strong signs of competing for a win at Long Beach in the past was on top of his game today quickly moving into the second position by Lap-4.

Friday’s fast qualifier Robby Gordon of Orange, California driving the Toyo Tires/ KMC Wheels truck wasted no time finding his way to the front following the Toyo tire tracks of Harlien advancing though the field quickly from the fourteenth starting spot.

As Lap-6 approached Luyendyk would start to see the handling of his truck start to go away, and Harlien was right there to capitalize taking over the lead. Gordon would follow Harlien past Luyendyk into the second position.

However, the red flag would fly over the track at the start of Lap-8, as Tecate, B.C., Mexico driver Apdaly Lopez would catapult the SPEED Energy/ RPM Off-Road entry off the side of the Toyo Tires front stretch ramp barrel rolling down the front straight away. The young desert Trophy Truck champion would climb out of the truck un-injured with a wave to the crowd. The race however was deemed official, as the clean up crew would need extensive time to clean up the racetrack.

Harlien would go on to capture his first Stadium SUPER Trucks victory, while Gordon would be credited with the second position and Luyendyk would round out the top three.

Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia driver Matt Brabham sporting new DeVilbiss/Headstrong/Bullet Liner livery this weekend would hang back in the pack waiting for things to sort out avoiding all of the carnage the first half of the race. After the competition caution Brabham would continue to pick off truck after truck through the field to ultimately finish in the fourth position after contesting Luyendyk Jr. multiple times for the third spot.

Davey Hamilton Jr. of Indianapolis, Indiana in his return to racing after a scary sprint car accident last November put him out of the drivers seat for nearly five months. Keeping pass running in the top three the first four laps the younger Hamilton showed signs of feeling right back at home in the seat of his VP Racing Fuels and Lubricants/ Always Evolving Truck. Not loosing any ground to the lead pack Hamilton would go on to score his best career Stadium SUPER Trucks finish with a fifth place effort.

Blade Hildebrand of Yucca Valley, California making his first start at the Grand Prix of Long Beach would keep his truck in one piece learning more and more each lap from his tenth starting position. The Empire Destructive driver would record a respectable finish earning the sixth spot.

Also making his first ever start at the Grand Prix of Long Beach Scottsdale, Arizona driver Cole Potts driving the HallmarkTrust.com truck would follow SST rookie Hidebrand to earn a seventh place finish.

Making his return to Stadium SUPER Truck competition after a year hiatus Erik Davis of Burbank, Calif. driving the Always Evolving/ Assault Industries No. 75 would bounce around the front of the field from his second starting position before falling back into the mix of things. Davis would be placed in the eighth position at the conclusion.

Lodi, California driver Troy Diede making his return to Stadium SUPER Trucks racing in the Diede Construction entry would run a smart cautious race holding his ground. Diede would be scored with ninth position.

2017 Stadium SUPER Trucks World Champion Paul Morris of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia would be stuck in the middle of chaos from his eight starting position. Beating and banging into each other trying to break free into open track Morris would spin around the LIVE/Think Loud Development entry on Lap-6, and be stuck against the tire barrier loosing multiple positions on track. When the checkered flag waved Morris was sitting in the tenth spot.

United Fiber and Data/ LIVE driver Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Penn., would run an amazing first three lap’s keeping pace with the leader Luyendyk Jr. at the front of the pack. However, in Stadium SUPER Truck racing nothing is ever certain lap after lap. Attempting to make a daring pass after the mandatory competition caution Hynes would not brake early enough, and need to use the escape road to slow down for the corner. One little mistake would take “The Thrill” out of a great finish with being credited with eleventh.

Phoenix, Arizona driver Jeff Hoffman driving the LIVE/ Think Loud Development truck struggle to gain positions after being collected in a Lap-2 scramble with Aaron Bambach where the two drivers would become stopped on track facing each other. That wasn’t the only trouble for Hoffman would encounter, as he would have nowhere to go after teammate Paul Morris would block the entire track on Lap-6. Hoffman would be scored with the twelfth position.

After his wild ride down the front straight away on Lap-7, Apdaly Lopez would go on to be credited with the thirteenth position after his beaten and broken the race would need to get towed back to the SST paddock with extensive left front suspension damage.

Rochester Hills, Michigan driver Aaron Bambach making his first SST start of 2018 would lose the handle on his Strategic Staffing Solutions truck on Lap-2 after making heavy contact with Jeff Hoffman. Bambach would pull his truck into the pit lane to see if SST technicians could diagnose a problem. Bambach would be credited with the fourteenth position.

The second and final round of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks at the 2018 Grand Prix of Long Beach will take place Sunday at 4:05 PM PT just after the completion of the IndyCar Series event.
