Gordon Tops Qualifying in Round #4 of Stadium SUPER Trucks

San Diego, Calif. (May 5, 2013) – SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks made the two-hour drive down Interstate-5, bringing the 600 hp off-road road show inside Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif. for a night of practice and qualifying.

After a very brief practice, the Stadium SUPER Trucks took to the very unique and challenging course for a best of 3-laps qualifying session. The first group contained the top three in the SST championship point tandings Orange, Calif., native Robby Gordon, Justin Lofton of Brawley Calif., and current point leader Rob MacCachren of Las Vegas, Nev.

Gordon began the session laying down the quickest time of the evening with a 36.828, a time that would end up remaining on top of the leader board the rest of the night. MacCachren would find trouble on lap-2 lightly flipping over in the sand pit. On the restart Lofton found trouble as well spinning out and pulling off the track on the final circuit.

Sheldon Creed, of Alpine, Calif., making his first appearance in a SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Truck would turn everyone’s head laying down a remarkable lap 37.433 good for second place behind leader Gordon.

However, that did not last long as Lalo Laguna of Mexi Cali Baja, Mexico would record a lap time of 37.385 over taking Creed for the second position.

The remaining competitors were unable to match the first lap recorded by Gordon as he went on to win his second straight SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks fast qualifier award and the one point bonus towards the 2013 SST Championship.
