Robby Gordon Wins At Coronado

CORONADO, California (Sept. 21, 2014) – Robby Gordon captured the Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race at the Coronado Speed Festival on the historic Naval Air Station North Island Sunday in front of a full house of military personnel and local San Diego area race enthusiasts. The crowd included thousands of new Stadium Super Truck (SST) series fans who witnessed one of the most amazing feats possible in a race car at the conclusion of the second race.

EJ Viso held off Sheldon Creed from nearby Alpine, Calif. in heat race competition, with Arizona’s Scotty Steele taking third. In the SST final, Creed again finished second with fellow-TRAXXAS driver Keegan Kincaid finishing third the night after winning his first SST race in Orange County.

The TRAXXAS SST race on the massive Navy Base across the Glorietta Bay from downtown San Diego, marked the third consecutive day the trucks raced in Southern California, with the first two races coming at Orange County’s Sand Sports Super Show Sept. 19-20.

Gordon and Kincaid shared top honors in Orange County. The overall weekend win went to Gordon, followed by Kincaid and Steele.
Following the second race at the Coronado Speed Festival, 16-year-old Creed, who’s Alpine home is only 30 miles from the Navy base, hoisted his TRAXXAS SST truck onto its right two tires and bicycled his truck around the 1.7-mile, 13-turn race course to the delight of the crowd. Never once did Creed let his left side tires down to the ground as fans clapped and yelled during the nearly five minute slow lap around the circuit.

Despite the great racing the trucks produced on the converted airport runway, Creed all but stole the show with his amazing effort. Almost unbelievably, his Toyo Tires kept their grip and maintained their integrity as Creed rode on the sidewalls of his Toyo’s.
