STADIUM SUPER TRUCKS ADDED TO 2019 O’REILLY AUTO PARTS 500 NASCAR TRIPLEHEADER SPRING WEEKEND

FORT WORTH, Texas (December 5, 2018) – The 2019 O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 NASCAR tripleheader spring weekend at Texas Motor Speedway will be further bolstered by the addition of Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks Series, speedway president Eddie Gossage announced today.

The Stadium Super Trucks Series will showcase its action-packed, high-flying show by having three points-paying races over the course of the March 28-31 weekend featuring the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

The first SST race is scheduled for Saturday, March 30, following the conclusion of the My Bariatric Solutions 300 Xfinity Series race. The Stadium Super Trucks will follow with a doubleheader on Sunday, March 31, with a race prior to the marquee O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event and another 30 minutes following the checkered flag for that event.

The Stadium Super Trucks will be returning to Texas Motor Speedway for a third consecutive year, but first during an all-NASCAR weekend. The previous two visits have been paired with the speedway’s annual June race weekend with the Verizon IndyCar Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

“To be back racing at Texas for our third straight year is wonderful and I would really like to thank the entire team at Texas Motor Speedway for the ongoing belief in Stadium Super Trucks as a series,” said Gordon, the series founder and owner. “The past two years we have been at the track with INDYCAR and now to have the organizers believe that we can add real value to the NASCAR weekend I’m extremely excited about it. Most of all, I’m extremely confident that the NASCAR fans will love what we bring to motorsport. Who knows? We might even bring some of my old fans from Texas back to the track that I haven’t seen since my Cup days.”

The Stadium Super Trucks use just a short portion of the frontstretch of the 1.5-mile oval, with the majority taking place in the South infield paddock and along pit road. The course features multiple jumps, including the massive, signature dirt one in the paddock that is the centerpiece of the layout.

The Stadium Super Trucks feature such drivers as reigning series champion Matt Brabham, Paul Morris, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Gavin Harlien, among others.

In addition to the MENCS O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 and NXS My Bariatric Solutions 300, the weekend also will be highlighted by the Vankor 350 NASCAR Gander OutdoorsTruck Series race on Friday, March 28.

​Very popular with Grand Prix fans, the Stadium SUPER Trucks series features high-horsepower trucks that not only race around the world-famous 1.97-mile, 11-turn Grand Prix racetrack but also jump high in the air utilizing a series of temporary ramps placed throughout the circuit.

“To be able to come back and continue our great relationship with the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach for the seventh consecutive year is something awesome,” said Gordon. “The venue location, the atmosphere, the excitement, and fun make the Grand Prix of Long Beach one of the premier events in the world, and Stadium SUPER Trucks is excited to have it on the schedule for 2019 with a new multi-year deal.”

“I know our fans will be delighted to have the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks back at Long Beach this year,” said Jim Michaelian, president and CEO of the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach. “For many years, they have proved to be a thrilling attraction and a highlight of the race weekend.”

SST TO RACE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA OCTOBER 26-28

The Boost Mobile Stadium Super Trucks series will compete at Sydney Motorsport Park as part of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) program next week.

To be held over the October 26-28 weekend, it will come a week after the series was scheduled to compete as part of the supporting cast to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship at the Vodafone Gold Coast 600.

SST was replaced on the bill by the Kumho Tyres Touring Car Series after CAMS suspended its Australian competition licence.

The AMRS is unaffiliated with CAMS, as it is run by the Benalla Auto Club-owned (BAC) Australian Auto Sport Alliance, and therefore can allow the category to compete.

“We are super excited to be able to give Australia what they want and that is for us to race,” said SST owner and competitor Robby Gordon.

“I want to thank Chris (Lewis-Williams, BAC CEO), Wayne (Williams, AMRS manager) and the team for asking us to come on board as part of the program, all of our sponsors and drivers are excited and looking forward to doing battle at the exciting Sydney Motorsport Park track.”

Williams hailed the addition of SST, which has not held an Australian round away from the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship since 2015, to the AMRS program.

“Everywhere they go, the Stadium Super Trucks pull a massive crowd, and we can’t wait to have them at Sydney Motorsport Park,” said Williams.

“They will put on a spectacular show for everyone watching, whether they’re at the track or viewing the live stream.

“Over the last couple of weeks, it’s no secret that Stadium Super Trucks has had to make some last-minute changes to their 2018 schedule, so we’re thrilled to have offered SST a place to compete and add them to our event program.”

Lewis-Williams is confident that the trucks are safe to race at a permanent circuit such as Sydney Motorsport Park after modifications which organisers made in light of the CAMS suspension.

“Sydney Motorsport Park is a very different venue to a street circuit, and the AASA and our insurers are comfortable with the work Stadium Super Trucks have done on addressing any safety concerns, such as improving the strength of the wheels and incorporating a new locking section for the body work,” he said.

“The Stadium Super Trucks are closely aligned to another series that the AASA sanctions, the ARB Australian Off Road Racing Championship, so we’re aware of the strength of the vehicles and similarity of those vehicles to the Stadium Super Trucks.

“Our job at the AASA is to assist categories to go racing and that’s the opportunity we’ve been able to create for Stadium Super Trucks who want to keep racing in Australia.

“Although one avenue (Gold Coast) was shut down, that’s the beauty of having choice in the market, there is an alternate sanctioning body to give categories an opportunity to make a choice about how they want their motor racing to be run.

“The AASA and AMRS are completely aware of the popularity of Stadium Super Trucks and are pleased we’re able to give them an opportunity to continue racing here.”

Defending champion Paul Morris also welcomed the news.

“It’s awesome to be able to race in Australia in the Stadium Super Trucks at Sydney Motorsport Park next weekend,” said Morris.

“It’s extremely obvious from the public backlash that motorsport fans want to see us race and see the series continue to compete in Australia.”

The occasion will be the first time that Stadium Super Trucks has raced at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Its previous appearances in the Harbour City both came in 2015, at Sydney Speedway near Parramatta and at the Sydney 500 at Olympic Park.

By joining the AMRS bill, SST will share the weekend with 10 other categories, which include the GT-1 Australia, Australian Formula Ford, and Performax TA2 Muscle Car Series, with Sunday’s racing to be live streamed.

The news comes after Peter Adderton, founder of the series new Australian naming rights sponsor, criticised CAMS for what he claimed is an ongoing failure to disclose to SST exactly how the series can comply with the governing body’s safety requirements.

CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca claims that SST has in fact been informed and that he would not discuss the matter with a sponsor.

Matt Brabham leads the series with one more event set to come, at Glen Helen Raceway in California, after Sydney.
