Sheldon Creed Takes Final 2014 SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS Race

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Nov. 6, 2014)- Sheldon Creed drove his TRAXXAS truck to victory over Robby Gordon in the season finale of the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race at the sold out MGM Resorts Village along the Las Vegas Strip.

The race, which was sponsored by Las Vegas Events, featured three segments of eight laps in the final race, with Gordon and Creed fighting nose to tail trading the lead regularly throughout the event. RPM Off Road driver and X Games Austin winner Apdaly Lopez drove a steady race and navigated through traffic on the tight circuit to finish third.

Keegan Kincaid, who drove a second TRAXXAS truck, finished fourth with 15-year-old Gavin Harlien rounding out the top five.

The Las Vegas victory was the 16-year-old Creed’s third of the season. Two roll-overs had the crowd gasping, the first of which involved Dave Royce whose Criterion Cars truck clipped the front stretch wall causing the veteran driver to roll onto his roof, and later, Royce again was involved in an incident, this time with Travis Pecoy who ended up on his roof after sliding off the side of the massive cross-over jump in the middle of course.

SST will begin its 2015 season at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, Australia Feb. 27-March 1 and follow that with a full slate of races with a schedule that will be announced in the coming weeks.

The SST race from MGM in Las Vegas can be seen on NBCSN Nov. 21 at 12:30 a.m. ET and 9:30 p.m.PT and (Nov. 20).

15 year-old Sheldon Creed Dominates Round No. 8 for First SST Victory

TORONTO (July 14, 2013) – Sheldon Creed, of Alpine, Calif., dominated the final six laps of the Honda Indy Toronto to capture his first ever SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks victory in convincing fashion.

As gorgeous weather conditions surrounded the Toronto area for the second day in a row, the encore presentation of SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks took to the temporary constructed street course of the Honda Indy Toronto for Round No. 8 of competition.

The starting line-up for the 8-lap SST Final would be determined by a complete invert of the fastest times from Saturday’s Round No. 7. After the inversion Toronto, native, Paul Tracy would find himself starting from the pole position to the inside of Scottsdale, Ariz., driver, P.J. Jones.

As the green flag flew, Tracy driving the No. 3 SportsNet truck would quickly jump out to the early lead but would relinquish it soon after to Jones in the American Racing Wheels truck. Third starting Creed would also move past Tracy and settle behind Jones setting up a fierce battle between the two.

Creed would maneuver past Jones on Lap-3 as the two navigated through the jump section of the 1.75-mile course. Falling in line behind Creed, Jones would constantly apply pressure bumping and banging into the back of the No. 74 Traxxas truck.

Heavy contact between the two trucks would send both drivers spinning out of control. With the tremendous lead on the field, both trucks would regain their position back in the running order. However, the No. 98 of Jones would acquire enough front-end damage in the contact resulting in fading back in the running order and eventually having to pit for repairs.

Justin Lofton of Brawley, Calif., would capitalize on the caution flag on Lap-4 as the Lofton Cattle No. 6 was on the move over taking the third spot from Tracy. Nothing could stop Creed, as he would pull back away from the field on cruise control.

Trouble would find the first place starter Tracy on Lap-6 as he made heavy contact with the wall, causing severe damage to the SportsNet truck ending his return to racing in front of the hometown fans.

Lap-7 trouble would strike third running Justin Lofton as he would encounter a loss of motor performance, resulting in the surrendering of multiple positions.

The No. 7 SPEED Energy truck driven by Robby Gordon would make his presence known on Lap-7 moving into the top-3, recovering from in an early race spin.

In convincing fashion Creed, would go on to secure his name in the record books as the youngest winner in SST history. Robby Gordon would cross the finish line a distant second while Davey Hamilton would grab his first podium finish rounding out the top-3.

After the race Creed commented on winning his first SST Victory:

“Getting my first SST win, I have been searching for this for awhile. Starting third I knew I needed to get away fast. It just wanted to run away from the pack, I did not want to get into the whole bumping and rubbing. I knew if I got in front of P.J. he was going to give it to me today, and he did. I looked in the mirror, and I was waiting for it, and he finally hit me we both ended up spinning out. P.J. and I were so checked out it ended up working out good. On the restart, he was right there again bumping me and pushing me all the way down the straightaway.”

“My strong part of the track was the jumps. It is where I could catch them every lap and just send those things. My weakest point was the back, so I knew if I was going to pass him it was going to have to be in front, and I made it happen!” Stated the young, Creed.

NBC Sports Network will broadcast SST Rounds No. 7 and 8 from the Honda Indy Toronto in the upcoming weeks. Exact date and time is yet to be determined.
