Stadium SUPER Trucks and CAMS Reach Partnership

August 21, 2019 – CAMS and SST can confirm today it has executed a three-year commercial rights agreement with Robby Gordon and Stadium SUPER Trucks, paving the way for the high-flying trucks to return to Australia as early as October 2019.

“The leadership at CAMS has always wanted to see the Stadium SUPER Trucks in Australia, and we are pleased to say that all of our safety concerns and related issues have been fully addressed and resolved.”

Stated CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca.

“There’s never been any doubt about the truck’s popularity here in Australia, and after months of discussions we are pleased to say SST racing is able to resume under CAMS.”

Nathan Cayzer, whom was an instrumental piece in bringing the SST Series to Australia in 2015 will continue to head all discussions around events and commercial partnerships in Australia.

“It is super exciting to be able to have SST return back to racing in Australia under the CAMS banner, an enormous amount of work has gone on behind the scenes for both parties to get to this point. With this positive result it is an overall win for all the supporters and motorsport fans of Australia,” Said Cayzer.

Robby Gordon and Stadium SUPER Trucks would like to thank Mr. Arocca and CAMS for their efforts in making this agreement a possibility and welcoming SST back to Australia under their sanctioning.

About SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks

Influenced by the former Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Racing Series, where drivers such as Rick Mears, four time Indy 500 Winner, Casey Mears NASCAR race winner, Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and Robby Gordon got their start, Gordon created SST in response to the public’s overwhelming interest in trucks and off-road racing. His plan to re-launch the former stadium series has led to exciting racing on both asphalt and dirt, while producing one of the most extreme forms of action sports today.

SST trucks have now evolved to race most of there events on pavement and set up portable ramps on street and road courses that launch the SST racers distances more than 150 feet, what sets the SST program apart from other series is the fact that all the SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition. Race winners are decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets. Drivers and their personal mechanics are assigned specific SST mechanics who together tune and make minor adjustments to the 600-horsepower trucks.

Robby Gordon Wins Mid-Ohio Race 1

Lexington, Ohio (August 10, 2019) – Returning back to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the second time in three weeks Robby Gordon would withstand a contact filled Stadium SUPER Trucks Round No. 11 to capture his first SST win of 2019. First starter Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania would jump out to the early lead in his United Fiber & Data truck before Casey Mears of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the bright yellow SPEED Energy entry this weekend would quickly apply pressure and drive past into the lead.

As the field worked thru only two corners things quickly escalated as Scottsdale, Arizona driver Cole Potts would make contact with Inman Park, Georgia driver Ryan Eversley upon landing of the KMC Wheels jump. The contact would send Eversley and the Continental Tires truck sliding across the track into the Toyo Tires entry of Jeff Hoffman. The two trucks would slide off the track thru the grass into the sand pit where Eversley’s Continental Terrian Contact A/T tires would bite into the dirt causing the truck to roll over twice. Landing on the wheels in stuntman form Eversley would continue on with the race.

At the start of Lap-2 Mears would continue to increase a sizeable lead on the rest of the field as third starting Robby Gordon of Orange, California would move into the second position as fast qualifier and current Stadium SUPER Trucks points leader Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia was right there banging on the door of the leaders looking to challenge for the top positions. Seventh starting Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the Security State Bank truck was also on the move as he followed Brabham to the front of the field before moving past him and setting his sights on Gordon for the second spot.

A caution would wave over the track on Lap-4 bunching the field back up for a restart.
Mears would quickly jump back out to the lead, as Potts would battle hard with Gordon for the second spot. The two drivers would trade the position multiple times until Potts would drift high into the grass and loose two positions.
The start of Lap-6 would see Gordon look to apply pressure to Mears for the lead. Going side by side off the KMC Wheels ramp Gordon would use all of the racing surface and more completely the pass on Mears. However, at this point of the race you could not count out the ultra fast truck of Potts as he was back in striking distance of the leaders, and quickly setting his sights on Gordon for the lead.

Going side-by-side with one another Gordon would out brake Potts for the position, but the young Arizona driver would look to bang doors with the off-road veteran the next corner. The contact between the two drivers would send Potts in a spin cycle loosing multiple positions. This would open the door for Phoenix, Arizona driver Jeff Hoffman at the start of Lap-8, Hoffman would battle his way back into contention after the mishap with Eversley on the first lap. The driver of the Toyo Tires truck would pull up along side Gordon for the lead and out brake him into the corner to over take the top position from the bright orange SPEED Energy truck.

As caution would wave over the field, Hoffman would prepare himself for a good restart with only three laps remaining, but Gordon would quickly have something to say about that looking to challenge Hoffman for the lead right away. Hoffman would miss his braking mark and drift wide into the grass allowing Gordon to go back to the lead.
Hanging on in the top four Brabham was doing all he could do to remain there as he would begin to encounter brake issues bouncing off every truck he could to point his truck in the right direction. As the truck became an extreme handful Brabham would drop back in the field and out of contention.

The last lap would see Potts go side by side with Gordon for the lead in the same exact fashion he did with Greg Biffle just two weeks ago. Out jumping Gordon off the KMC Wheels ramp Potts would power to the outside of Gordon for the lead. Gordon would battle back and make contact with Potts sending him into the grass. Potts would then decide to take a short cut cutting significant distance of the racecourse.

Gordon would go on to win his first race of the 2019 Stadium SUPER Trucks Championship, while capturing his twentieth win of his career. Mears would capture his first ever SST podium position in the second position, while Potts would right his truck to round out the top three. After the completion of the event USAC Officials would apply a penalty of one position to the No. 60 truck of Cole Potts for not getting back on the racecourse in the closest point where he went off track.

From flipping over on the first lap and battling thru the entire field avoiding the chaos all around him the Continental Tires truck of Ryan Eversley would wind up with his first Stadium SUPER Trucks podium as in the final run down after the penalty was applied to Potts. Hoffman crucial mistakes the last two laps would eliminate him from podium contention and loose lots of ground to the leaders. At the finish of the scheduled laps Hoffman would be scored in the fifth position.

As Brabham went from challenging for the win to just hanging on to his truck to remain on course as he would loose his brakes, and begin to become a bowling ball banging into any truck he can to get his turned in the right direction. As the checkered flag would fly Brabham would be credited with the sixth spot.

Gavin Harlien driving the VP Fuels & Lubricants truck would start from the fifth position but would encounter unfortunate luck once again at Mid-Ohio landing awkwardly off the first jump trying to avoid the spinning trucks in front of him. In the process Harlien would knock a belt off the motor causing the truck to limp around back to the pit lane. SST technicians would be able to put the belt back on and Harlien would be able to return to the track for the last segment and finish the race but would be scored in the seventh spot.

First starting Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania would quickly relinquish the lead to Casey Mears and fall in line behind him on Lap-1. Hanging strong in the top five the next lap before dropping back in the pack after missing his braking mark and running wide. Hynes would keep the United Fiber & Data truck clean and go on to finish the race in the eighth position.

Gavin Harlien Mid Ohio

Lexington, Ohio (July 28, 2019) – Gavin Harlien raced to victory in SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Round No. 10 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course Sunday after encountering a heart-breaking defeat Saturday as his truck would develop an issue while dominating the race at the midway point.

Pole Sitter Gavin Harlien of Mesa, Arizona driving the VP Racing Fuel/Lubricants truck would jump out to the early lead immediately from the drop of the green flag.

Fourth starting Jeff Hoffman of Phoenix, Arizona would drive past second starting Bill Hynes to slide into the second position at the start of Lap-2.

Current SST point leader Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia however was the man on the move quickly moving up into the fourth position for his eighth starting spot, and looking to be in the mix of the leaders early in the race.

The restart of the second segment allowed Brabham and Hoffman battle hard for the second position, as the two would begin to push it harder with one another. Going side by side multiple times Hoffman would hold off the hard charging Brabham.

Stalking the Toyo Tire tracks of Hoffman, Brabham would use the draft to his advantage slinging past Hoffman for the second position at the start of Lap-9.

Meanwhile, Hoffman and Brabham would battle hard with one another Harlien was on cruise control out front until Brabham would gain his opportunity at the restart the third segment as he would line up directly on Harlien’s rear bumper.

Brabham would make many attempts to move past Harlien the final two circuits looking to move to the inside and outside, but each attempt denied as Harlien would hold him off as thousands of fans cheered loudly.

As the checkered flag waved Harlien would go on to capture his first SST victory of the season ahead of Brabham, and Hoffman who would round out the podium.

Runner-Up finisher in Saturday’s race Greg Biffle of Vancouver, Washington would start his fourth SST race from the fifth spot. Quickly moving forward Biffle would add extreme pressure for the second position by Lap-2. Driving the Continental Tire truck super aggressive Biffle would launch off the Continental Tire ramp and land sideways spinning the truck into the infield grass and backing the truck into the retaining wall.

Biffle would pull to the pit lane to have SST technicians look at the truck for damage. With only a bent rear bumper Biffle would continue the race. Running consistent laps without trouble Biffle would be able to make his plan to advance after the conclusion of the second segment. Biffle would hold a great side by side battle for Cole Potts for the fourth position as the two would go side by side for multiple corners. Coming to the finish line Biffle would sneak ahead of Potts in the finishing order.

Saturday’s race winner Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona driving the Security State Bank truck would start Sunday’s race from the sixth position and quickly move forward by Lap-2. However, Potts would make contact with fellow Scottsdale native Arie Luyendyk Jr. Both trucks would slide into the grass losing multiple positions.

Remaining patient Potts would be able to work his way back into the fourth position by Lap-8 setting up a great battle for the third position after the second competition caution. Pott’s would look to duck to the inside of Hoffman multiple times for third, but Hoffman would slam the door closed sending Potts into the grass again as Biffle would look to challenge him for fourth. As the checked flag flew Biffle would over take Potts for the fourth position resulting in a fifth.

Coming to the starting grid Orange, California driver Robby Gordon sporting his familiar bright orange SPEED Energy livery this weekend would encounter truck issues on the sight in lap. After a few minutes adjustments on pit lane from the SST technicians Gordon would make the call to the grid at the last moment. Struggling the handling of the truck the entire race Gordon would only advance one positions from his seventh starting spot to finish sixth.

– The 2019 Dakar Rally will mark Robby Gordon of Orange, California’s 13th start in the prestigious Off-Road Rally race.
– Gordon and veteran navigator Kellon Walch started 16th off the line for Stage 1 of the 2019 Dakar Rally.
– Thru way point 1 Gordon in the Toyo Tires SPEED Edition Textron XX was on pace with the lead cars. However, would miss the waypoint and need to turn around to clear it loosing a few valuable minutes in the process.
– Running a lower air pressure than normal to gain traction in the sand, Gordon would need to pace himself through the fast and rocky portions of the three wash sections to be careful to not puncture one of his 33” Toyo Tires Open Country M/T Tires.
– Similar to the first way point, remaining focused on passing the cars in front of him Gordon would miss the way point, and veteran navigator Walch would instruct him to turn around to clear. Resulting in finishing 8 minutes and 28 second behind leader Nasser Al-Attiyah with a total time of 1 hour 10 minutes and 9 seconds.


“All three cars finish today, and really did not have any problems, a few small things that were self induced. I tried cutting the course a couple times, and Kellon made me loop back around to get the waypoints. I most likely lost around 3 minutes by missing way points, and having to turn around and go back to clear it. When you start so back in the field like sixteenth where we did, as a driver your not focused on the way points, your focused on the cars, and try to get to the car in front of you.”

“We are running a OEM production tire on the SPEED Edition Textron XXR this year, a 33” Toyo Tires Open Country M/T. With the Sand I felt the way the M/T is with the sidewall, I had to drop my tire pressures down to ten pounds, but I didn’t realize we were going to have three wash sections about 15 miles of rocky washes but I had to be very careful and slow down the pace to not get a rock thru the tire with low pressure. My strategy was great in the sand, but was defiantly a disadvantage with the high speed in the rocks.”

“Myself and Team SPEED made a lot of changes to these cars after the Baja 1000. Back in that race we lost a head gasket, so really focused on the cooling and oil cooling leading up to the Dakar. The water temp I never saw over 200 degrees, the oil temp the highest I saw was 220 degrees. It looks like we have our cooling temperatures stabilized. The most important thing was to survive this special. We did a 160 miles transfer liaison on the way here that was perfect for breaking the engines in, and getting everything bedded in properly. Having all three cars finish on day one is a good sign. We did enter a UTV against the Cars, we would of won the UTV class pretty easy but that wasn’t the name of the game here. We came to race the cars and to be honest when I saw the eight minutes down I saw a bit of sticker shock, but when I went back and evaluated all of the things we did wrong or we could of done better. I found that we could most likely find five of the eight minutes back. That would put us pretty much on pace with everyone. Biggest thing in Stage 2 I cannot over drive the car and be smart consistently having good runs. Stage 2 will give us dune, gravel roads and rocks at the end of the day we will see where we stack up against the competition.

-Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona made his first Dakar Rally start today in Stage 1 from Lima, Peru to Pisco, Peru.
-The short 84 km special offered Potts and navigator Max Eddy an opportunity to become familiar with the SPEED Edition Textron XXR racecar.
-Not pushing the Innovative Computer Professional/ Security State Bank/ Lakes Region Casino car too hard Potts cleared checkpoint one 5 minutes and 26 seconds behind the leader Nasser Al-Attiyah. The second half of the Stage was a little more difficult, and Potts lost time on the leader trying to navigate the dunes.
-Finishing the stage with a total time of 1 hour and 22 minutes and 3 seconds, Potts received a good learning experience of what to expect the rest of the rally.


“Good Stage today for my first experience at a Rally. My main objective was to get a feel for the car, and its limitations with out pushing it too hard and breaking anything. The Dunes are similar to what I have been training on in the US. On behalf of Blade and Robby. I think we are all very comfortable out here in the sand, and the other terrain that’s going to get thrown at us so that’s a real bonus. Today was just a day to really figure out the car, and get it up to our liking for the remaining stages. We will make a few adjustments, and be back to give it a go tomorrow for Stage 2.”

-Blade Hildebrand of Yucca Valley, California made his first Dakar Rally start today in Stage 1 from Lima, Peru to Pisco, Peru.

-The short distance of the special would give Hildebrand and navigator Bill Conger an opportunity to become acquainted with the King Shocks/Toyo Tires SPEED Edition Textron XXR during race conditions.

-Hildebrand made it thru check point one with a time 3:32 behind the leader Nasser. The second half of the stage was consistent for the King Shocks/Toyo Tires SPEED Edition Textron XXR but was more challenging.

-Hildebrand and Conger would finish 6 minutes and 56 seconds behind the leader with a total time of 1 hour 16 minutes and 11 seconds.


“Today was Stage 1 of the Dakar Rally, and I was able to move the King Shocks/ Toyo Tires SPEED Edition Textron XXR pass some cars through the stage, but I really tried to take it easy feeling out the car and working with Bill (Conger) to make each waypoint consistently without getting lost. The car had no problems as it ran flawlessly the entire stage. We are going to do a little bit of shock tuning over night to prepare for Stage 2. As they were a little soft today for the dunes, other than that the car ran great, and I am looking forward to Stage 2.
