Sheldon Creed Wins Race 2 at Toronto SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas

TORONTO, Ontario, Canada (July 20, 2014) – Sheldon Creed completed a weekend sweep in the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race at Toronto Sunday by edging Robby Gordon for the second day in a row winning both weekend races.

Unlike Saturday’s slippery track, warm and dry conditions produced a thrilling battle between Creed and Gordon. The two drivers battled relentlessly for virtually the entire 10-lap race, with nearly every fan in attendance at the 11-turn street circuit in Toronto standing to watch the spectacle, with thousands crowding the fence line with camera phones in hand.

Scotty Steele again finished third completing an identical podium lineup for both Toronto races.

“It’s obviously pretty cool to win two times in a row here at Toronto,” Creed, 16, said. “Today was a much better race given that it was dry. We could go hard and Robby and I had a great battle. We both got sideways in turn 3 there at the end and I was able to put some distance between us, but about three turns later he was back on my bumper.”

Canadian Native, Paul Tracy finished fourth in his TRAXXAS-sponsored truck, Mexico’s Apdaly Lopez finished fifth in the RPM Off-Road/ truck, Aaron Bambach in the truck finished sixth, with Nick Vanis in the Outlaw LED by Robby Gordon No. 10 and Bill Hynes in the Freaks for LIVE truck rounding out the field.

“I leaned on him a little bit there and he gave it back to me,” Gordon said. “Sheldon did a great job as did Scotty and both of these guys are going places with their careers. People will hear a lot about them for years to come. I could get to Sheldon’s bumper, but I had to check up going over the jumps to make sure that I didn’t land on him.”

NBCSN will broadcast the race at 10 p.m. PDT on July 31 (1 a.m. EDT Aug. 1). Following its trip to Toronto, the series will shift to the west coast for its final four races of the 2014 season at the Sand Sport Super Show in Orange County, Calif. Sept. 19-20; the Coronado Speed Festival Sept. 21 and Las Vegas in conjunction with the SEMA Show in early November.

Justin Lofton Wins Round No. 7 of SST Competition on the Streets of Toronto

TORONTO (July 13, 2013) – Justin Lofton withstood a mid-race battle with Robby Gordon on the way to capturing his second SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win of 2013 in the Honda Indy Toronto.

As near perfect weather conditions invaded Toronto, ON., the highly anticipated Round No. 7 of SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks took to the temporary constructed street course of the Honda Indy Toronto for race one of the doubleheader event weekend.

The starting line-up for the 8-lap SST Final would be determined by a complete invert of qualifying times from Saturday morning practice. At the conclusion of the 8-minute practice session, Sheldon Creed would navigate through the 11 turns and over the four metal jumps of the 1.75-mile course the quickest of the 8 competitors with a lap of 1:33:209, over a second faster than second place, P.J. Jones with a 1:34:658.

As the green flag flew in front of a jam-packed grandstand, Davey Hamilton subbing for the injured Jimmy Vasser and SST Championship Points Leader Rob MacCachren would pace the field from a standing start. Hamilton would jump out to the early lead ahead of MacCachren. However, the trucks of Townsend Bell, Justin Lofton and Robby Gordon wasted no time moving to the front passing truck after truck.

Trouble would find the first place starter Hamilton at the completion of Lap-1 as the motor would expire on the No. 12 Traxxas truck ending his race early. Third starting Bell would lead the first two laps before the hard charging Gordon in the SPEED Energy No. 7 would take command on Lap-3.

A restart on Lap-4 bunched the field back up, setting up a tremendous duel between Gordon and Lofton for the lead. Gordon and Lofton would alternate positions through multiple corners driving the tires off the SST trucks, literally as Gordon would make contact with the outside retaining wall puncturing a hole in one of his Toyo Tires.

Lofton, driving the Lofton Cattle No. 6 would go on to secure his name in the record books winning his second SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks race of the year. Lofton was followed to the finish line by second place finisher MacCachren, with Creed rounding out the podium.

After the race Lofton commented on winning SST Round No. 7:

“It’s awesome to be here in Toronto, I have always dreamed about racing on IndyCar tracks like this and I finally get to do it. I want to say thanks to all the fans for coming out and checking out these SST trucks.”

“Being able to race to race head-to-head with Robby (Gordon) has always been a dream of mine. I’ve been waiting for a battle like this to happen between Robby and I for quite sometime,” Stated Lofton “I’m so glad I came out on top.”

SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Round No. 8 will take place Sunday afternoon at 2:15 PM ET just prior to the green flag of the IZOD IndyCar Series Honda Indy Toronto Finale.

Round No. 8 will be aired live on SportsNet Ontario and SportsNet 360 at 2:15 PM ET. Please check your local listings for channel.
