Tickets Now On Sale For SST On The Strip At Caesars Palace

Charlotte, N.C. (November 1, 2013) – Not since 1984 has a major motorsports event taken place within steps of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, but that changes Friday, November 8 when Caesars Palace Las Vegas hosts SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks on a temporary circuit which sends the trucks flying literally through the Caesars Palace Marquee.

Tickets are now on sale at the Caesars Palace SST Ticket Page. With fewer than 4,000 tickets available, SST officials strongly encourage fans to reserve tickets in advance. SST on the Strip at Caesars Palace takes place as the SEMA Show – the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world – also held in Las Vegas concludes.

“This is an event that even by Las Vegas standards is beyond comparison,” SST founder and president Robby Gordon said. “Caesars Palace is known for first-class events and this may be the most amazing activity to take place in Caesars’ parking lot since Evel Knievel was jumping the fountains. We would like to again thank everyone at Caesars Palace and The Forum Shops at Caesars for giving us the opportunity to present a race like this.”

Practice and qualifying for Friday night’s race events will take place during the day on the temporary circuit that will be situated in front of Caesars Palace and adjacent to The Forum Shops. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the racing action, which will also include the USA Pro Supermoto and the Modified Trophy Karts, will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Only three points separate series leader Rob MacCachran and Gordon in the season-long points’ battle. MacCachran has won four of the 13 SST events while Gordon has taken three titles. Third-place driver Justin Lofton (three wins), Sheldon Creed (two wins) and Jarrett Brooks (one win) are the other drivers to have scored wins this season.

Throughout this inaugural season of the high horse-powered SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks, fans have watched door-to-door racing and incredible cornering as the trucks drifted around both asphalt and dirt racecourses flying over specially constructed metal ramps or huge dirt embankments.

An event at Caesars has long been a vision of Gordon’s. The unique form of racing that SST offers was immensely popular more than 20 years ago – known then as the Mickey Thompson Off-Road Championship – and fittingly Gordon, one of the world’s greatest off-road racers, has brought it back to life.
