Rob MacCachren & Jerrett Brooks Win At Crandon

Crandon, Wisc. (September 1, 2013) – Making the highly anticipated return to the World Championships, the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks invaded the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Crandon, Wis., for rounds No. 9 and 10 of SST competition. 10 SST drivers would take to the track including the new drivers of Craig Potts, Brock Heger and Scotty Steele.

 On Friday evenings Round No. 9, Rob MacCachren, of Las Vegas, Nev., driving the No. 21 Traxxas truck, would make a late race pass en route to capturing his fourth SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win of the season.

 The 12-Lap SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks final began from a land rush start and saw Robby Gordon of Orange, Calif., grab the holeshot ahead of Scottsdale, Ariz., native P.J. Jones.

 The Red flag was quickly displayed as Scotty Steele of Peoria, Ariz, lost the handle on his truck and made hard contact with a concrete retaining block causing extensive damage to his truck and ending his SST debut early. On the restart MacCachren would be the truck on the move as he moved past Justin Lofton into the second position setting his sights on the leader Gordon.

 The battle for the lead would heat up in the laps following as Gordon did all he could to hold off the hard charging MacCachren. Following Gordon for multiple laps, MacCachren made his move on Gordon going up the hill and never looked back as he went on to take the Traxxas sponsored entry to the Round No. 9 victory ahead of Gordon and Jerrett Brooks.

 After the race, an excited MacCachren commented on winning Stadium SUPER Trucks Round No.9;

 “Crandon SST Round No.9, driving the No. 21 Traxxas truck. I had a lot of fun out there. Practice did not go very well for us as we ended up seizing up a power steering pulley and I only was able to make 2 laps of practice. I did not know what to expect, and I needed to get out there and learn the track. Fortunately I was able to follow, watch, learn and finally set sail there and get by Robby (Gordon) with the momentum going over the big jump. After that, I just needed to settle in and make no mistakes. These trucks are fun to drive, as they are very difficult to drive. Going out there and being successful is a huge accomplishment to me. The SST series is good we are leading the points, and we need to keep having consistent good finishes.”

 Sunday afternoon’s Round No. 10 SST finale of the 2013 World Championships would become a history-making event for the ages.

 As the 10 SST trucks would begin from the Crandon famous land rush start, youngster Jerrett Brooks would capture the holeshot ahead of P.J. Jones. Point contender Robby Gordon would find trouble on the opening lap spinning around the SPEED Energy / Toyo Tires entry. Brooks would go on to lead the next four laps with close friend and classmate Sheldon Creed directly behind him. Creed would use the knowledge of following Brooks to his advantage at the conclusion of Lap-6.

 Caution would fly at the halfway point and something new to SST would be performed. The trucks would race on the course in reverse the last 6-Laps. The epic battle between Creed and Brooks continued right where it left off before the caution flag, as Creed would jump out to the early lead with Brooks directly in tow. Creed would make a costly mistake on Lap-8 and Brooks capitalize racing by him back into the lead.

 The man on the move, however, was Gordon, racing past points leader Rob MacCachren and P.J. Jones to overtake the third position. P.J. Jones great run would come to an end, after making hard contact with the inside concrete barrier causing extensive front end damage to his American Racing Wheels truck. Jones continued to drive his beaten and battered truck around the track, collecting as many valuable points as possible. The battered Jones truck eventually would stall at the exit of the track, where a few moments later Justin Lofton driving the J6 Ink entry would meet him for a brief discussion.

 Brooks would go to lead the remaining 4-Laps to take the No. 77 Synergy Electric truck to the Round No.10 victory over of Creed and Gordon. Brooks would be marked down in history as the second victory for a teenager in SST competition.

 After the race an extremely excited Jerrett Brooks commented on his first ever SST win;

 “I came out and got my first holeshot in my only my second time racing this track, Sheldon gave me a tremendous battle the first half of the race, and we came to the second half where we ran the track backwards. I got a good pass on Sheldon right away, and just started hitting my lines lap after lap trying to stay on the cushion as much as possible, extending my lead on Sheldon little by little. He gained a little on me on the last lap, but the No. 77 Synergy Electric Truck came out with the win.”

MacCachren Sets His First Stadium SUPER Trucks Quick Time

St. Louis, Mo. (June 7, 2013) – Making the return indoors the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks invaded the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Mo., for a day of practice and qualifying. 12 SST drivers would take to the track for qualifying including the new drivers in Apdaly Lopez and Keegan Kincaid.

The newly added Dash for Cash would put extra pressure on the driver’s as they laid down their qualifying laps with only the top four drivers in qualifying getting invited to participate in a 4-lap 4-truck shootout for $5,000 Saturday night.

After a series of brief practice sessions, SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks took to the track for the best of 3-laps qualifying session. Justin Matney of Bristol, Va., was the first driver out of the tunnel laying down a lap of 40.070. That time would not stay at the top for long as Apdaly Lopez making his first start in a Stadium SUPER Truck would drive a great second lap of 37.870 jumping the No. 5 to the top of the charts.

Lopez’s time would remain the quickest throughout much of the qualifying session until Brawley, Calif., driver Justin Lofton would take a different approach in his racing line clocking a time of 37.537 jumping to the top. Lofton’s time was quickly out matched by the next competitor Orange, Calif., driver Robby Gordon with a time of 37.354.

Making his third start in a Stadium SUPER Truck 15-year old Sheldon Creed would go back to where he left off in San Diego knocking Gordon off the top spot with a lap of 36.811.

Only Las Vegas, Nev., native Rob MacCachren driving the Traxxas No. 21 could attempt to knock the kid off from grabbing his second consecutive SST quick time. Putting together three quick laps MacCachren would blaze a time of 36.761.

MacCachren would go on to capture his first SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks fast qualifier award of the season; he was followed on the charts by second place Sheldon Creed and third finishing Robby Gordon.

MacCachren, Creed, Gordon, and Lofton will be the four trucks invited to participate in the 4-lap Dash for Cash Saturday night gunning for the $5,000 top prize.

Glendale, Ariz. (April 5, 2013) – SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks made history, taking their first laps of qualifying on the specifically built course inside the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. began the qualifying session, running 3 smooth laps. Next was Robby Gordon as he blazed a quick lap of 46.976. Gordon remained the quick qualifier throughout much of the event even after successful laps by off-road veterans Jeff Ward driving the No.4 JEGS.com truck and Rob MacCachren in the No.21 Traxxas entry.

“I’m stoked to be named the first quick time in Stadium SUPER Trucks competition and to have Imperial Valley FULL PLATE on board. It’s feels great knowing I’m going up against some of the best in the business when it comes to off-road racing. I just knew as soon as I got in a truck that I’d be fast,” said Lofton.

Mexican Driver Lalo Laguna To Compete in Stadium SUPER Trucks

Charlotte, N.C. (April 3, 2013) – Mexican Off-Road young gun, Lalo Laguna will compete in the 2013 Inaugural Stadium SUPER Trucks season driving the No.17 Visit Mexico truck.

Stadium SUPER Truck Series is modeled after the late Mickey Thompson Off-Road Championship and will take off-road racing to 12 state of the art stadiums across the country and abroad offering the champion a year-end prize of $500,000. The first race for SST and Laguna will take place April 6 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

“I am very excited to be part of Stadium SUPER Trucks and to have the opportunity to represent Mexico and it’s entire racing heritage. I would like to thank Robby Gordon and all of the people who have helped putting this awesome series together. I can’t wait for all of the fans to come and experience what has been Robby’s dream for many years.” Stated Laguna.

A native of Mexicali Baja California, the 22-year old Laguna has made a name for himself in just a few short years of off-road racing with multiple SCORE and BITD wins. Laguna will look to continue his winning ways in one of Gordon’s specially engineered 600-horsepower Stadium SUPER Trucks.

SST President Robby Gordon commented on Laguna as an addition to the Stadium SUPER Trucks for 2013.

“To have such a young international talent to be a part of Stadium SUPER Trucks is just another piece of the puzzle complete. To have veteran off-road legends to young guns apart of the series makes for tremendous competition on and off the track.”
