Stadium SUPER Trucks UFD At The Glen

Stadium SUPER Trucks to visit Watkins Glen International for UFD at The Glen

WATKINS GLEN, New York (September 1, 2017) – SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks continue the 2017 World Championship this Labor Day weekend back in the United States with its first ever visit to the state of New York and the famed Watkins Glen International.

Stadium SUPER Trucks 1st Annual UFD at The Glen will feature Race 1 on Saturday, rounded out with Race 2 prior to the start of the Verizon IndyCar on Sunday.

Opened in 1956 the 11-turn purpose build road course has featured everything from the open wheeled cars of Formula 1 and IndyCar to the NASCAR Cup Series. Never in the 61-year history of Watkins Glen International have the racecars competing looked to take flight on purpose.

Times have now changed and ten 600-hp highflying Stadium SUPER Trucks will launch over four 36-inch tall aluminum ramps placed strategically throughout the racecourse.

Featuring two different race circuits this weekend the Stadium SUPER Trucks will race the 8-turn 2.454 mi (3.949 km) short-course that is often used by the stockcars of the NASCAR circuit. The much different open wheeled cars of the Verizon IndyCar Series will compete on the 11-turn original road course.

The starting lineup for Saturday’s race was determined from each driver’s fastest lap time in Friday morning’s qualifying session. Following the qualifying session, a full field inversion from fastest to slowest was put in place, meaning Shaun Richardson, from Scarborough, United Kingdom, will start from pole alongside Always Evolving driver Erik Davis of Burbank, California.

Row two will consist of United Fiber & Data driver Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania starting inside Aaron Bambach of Rochester Hills, Michigan making his second start of 2017 in the The Productivity Team Engineering Services/ LSG Insurance Partners entry.

Row three will find former Dirt Short Course driver Jeff Hoffman of Phoenix, Arizona, and Stadium SUPER Trucks points leader Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Australia driving the DEVILBISS truck. Brabham won the Stadium SUPER Trucks last event held in Beijing National Stadium in Beijing, China.

Gavin Harlien of Mesa, Arizona will start in the seventh position, along side veteran driver Robby Gordon of Orange, California. Gordon is the only driver in the field whom has won at Watkins Glen International claiming a NASCAR Cup victory in 2003.

Quick Qualifier Paul Morris of Norwell, Queensland, Australia will start in the ninth position driving the LIVE entry and Stadium SUPER Trucks rookie Steve Kendall of Santa Ana, California will make up the tenth starting position after encountering a broken rear-end housing during qualifying and not recording a time.

SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Race 1 will be contested Saturday afternoon at 12:30 P.M. local time. Tickets can still be purchased at http://www.theglen.com
