SST SERIES TO RACE AT 2014 CHEVROLET DETROIT BELLE ISLE GRAND PRIX

SPEED ENERGY STADIUM SUPER TRUCKS SERIES TO RACE AT
2014 CHEVROLET DETROIT BELLE ISLE GRAND PRIX

DETROIT, Mich. (December 13, 2013) – Adding even more excitement and bringing an extreme element to the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, it was confirmed today that the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks (SST) Series will compete at next summer’s event, May 30-June 1, 2014.

In only its second season and coming off a wildly-popular debut in 2013, the SST Series will compete on the 2.3-mile Raceway at Belle Isle Park street circuit with two races run during Grand Prix weekend. The high-flying trucks will launch from a standing start for each race and they jump ramps that will be set up on the Grand Prix race circuit.

With trucks expected to reach speeds in excess of 120 mph, launching more than 15 feet in the air and covering distances more than 75 feet on Belle Isle, the SST Series is unique in the sense that all trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition. Drivers do not have an advantage over others because they have a bigger budget or greater technology.  Drivers are assigned SST crew members who make minor adjustments at a driver’s request.  The rules are specific as to what changes are permitted on the trucks so that the technology in the trucks remains equal.

“All the fans at the Grand Prix are going to love watching the SST Series trucks in action,” said Bud Denker, Chairman of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. ”These trucks can just fly and it will be incredible to watch them battle wheel-to-wheel on the streets of Belle Isle.”

In addition to the SST Series, the IndyCar Series, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the Pirelli World Challenge Series will also compete at Belle Isle in 2014. With two races run in SST, IndyCar and World Challenge competition, fans will have the opportunity to enjoy seven great races over the course of three days at Belle Isle.

“With the addition of the SST Series to an already action-packed racing lineup, next summer’s Grand Prix is going to provide the most exciting on-track competition that we’ve ever had on the island,” added Denker.

Founded by former IndyCar and NASCAR driver Robby Gordon, the 1995 Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix polesitter and race winner, the SST Series raced at the Long Beach and Toronto street circuits with the IndyCar Series this past season. In 2014, the series will feature 15 rounds of competition among 10 race venues, including the ESPN X Games in Austin, Tex.

“It’s an awesome opportunity to bring the SST Trucks to Detroit and race next season at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix,” said Gordon, who is also a driver in the series. “We believe SST is the most extreme and exciting form of motorsports on four wheels in the world and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it to the fans in the Motor City.”

In addition to Gordon an off-road racer Rob McCachren, who finished second in the SST Series season championship, other popular drivers that raced in the series this year included Paul Tracy, Davey Hamilton, Justin Lofton, Kyle LeDuc, Arie Luyendyk Jr., P.J. Jones, Mike Jenkins and Ricky Johnson.

SST TO JOIN X GAMES AUSTIN IN 2014

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (December 11, 2013) – Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks (SST) series has been selected by ESPN to join the complement of sports at the upcoming X Games Austin event, taking place in Texas on June 8, 2014 at Circuit of the Americas.

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

“We’re thrilled to have Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Truck Series join the complement of sports at X Games Austin,” said Tim Reed, senior director of content strategy. “We look forward to working with the Stadium Super Truck team, and showcasing to ESPN X Games audiences around the world a very entertaining form of truck racing.”

Other than the trucks launching more than 20 feet in the air covering distances more than 150 feet under race conditions, 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. Races are decided by driver skill alone rather than individual team engineering and budgets. Drivers and their personal mechanics are assigned specific SST technicians who together tune and make minor adjustments to the 600-HP trucks.

“It is a great honor to have been chosen by ESPN to bring Stadium Super Trucks to the X Games,” Gordon said. “The X Games are the premier action-sport property in the world, and this is a testament to the fact that SST is the most extreme four-wheel motorsport on earth. Circuit of the Americas in Texas will be a great venue to showcase SST to the X Games audiences.”

The X Games will be one of 15 rounds currently scheduled for the 2014 SST season. Following the successful inaugural season of the Stadium Super Trucks, the 2014 SST schedule features 10 race venues, all within North America’s top-50 markets, including six venues within the top-15.

In 2013, the season championship came down to the last race, ending with a points difference from first to second of only seven points (a total of three points paying positions on track for the season). This is a testament to how competitive and equal the trucks really are. P.J. Jones won his first SST race at the season-ending event at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip. Other race winners in the first SST season included McCachren (4 wins), Gordon (3), Lofton (3), Sheldon Creed (2) and Jerrett Brooks (1). In 14 rounds of competition, 27 world-class drivers took part in the series, including popular drivers Paul Tracy, Davey Hamilton, Kyle LeDuc, Arie Luyendyk Jr., Jeff Ward, Mike Jenkins and Ricky Johnson.

2014 SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks Schedule

Charlotte, N.C. (November 27, 2013) – Following the successful inaugural season
of the SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks (SST), the 2014 SST schedule features
10 race venues, all within North America’s top-50 markets, including six venues
within the top-15.

Several of the events will feature two rounds of competition, bringing the total
number of rounds to 15 for the second season of the highly competitive and
high-flying Super Trucks.

Among the cities SST will visit include Las Vegas, Toronto, San Diego, Los
Angeles, Detroit, Indianapolis and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla. One additional
city will be announced, which SST founder and president Robby Gordon, believes
will be the headline event of the 2014 season. Specific dates will be announced
in conjunction with promoters and other local partners. However, it can be
stated the season will start in Las Vegas on March 7 and end at the same venue
on Nov. 7.

For its second season, Gordon has focused the schedule around further-enhancing
sponsor value by racing in front of large crowds and establishing an enhanced
national television platform. The inaugural season’s schedule, which was
highlighted by the amazing trucks and drivers racing in conjunction with several
IndyCar Series races on iconic circuits, proved to be well-received by fans and
competitors alike.

“Having an opportunity to showcase these trucks last season at places like the
Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach and the Honda Indy Toronto was tremendously
successful,” Gordon said. “Since then the outreach from promoters asking us to
bring the SST series to their venues has given us all a great sense of pride and
proves to us that we have a series that is exactly what it was designed to be –
the most unbelievable, jaw-dropping form of auto racing in the world.”

Other than the trucks launching more than 20 feet in the air covering distances
more than 150 feet, what makes the SST program such a success is the fact that
all the SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in
race-ready condition. Drivers do not have an advantage over others because they
have a bigger budget or greater technology. Drivers are assigned SST crewmembers
who make minor adjustments at a driver’s request. The rules are specific as to
what changes are permitted on the trucks so that the technology in the trucks
remains equal.

In 2013, Gordon came from behind to edge world-class off-road racer Rob
McCachren by seven points to capture the season championship. NASCAR Truck
Series race-winner Justin Lofton finished third. P.J. Jones won his first SST
race at the season-ending event at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip, and
finished fourth in season-ending points. Other race winners in the first SST
season included Gordon (3 wins), McCachren (4), Lofton (3), Sheldon Creed (2)
and Jerrett Brooks (1).

Over 14 rounds of competition, 27 world-class drivers took part in the series,
including popular drivers Paul Tracy, Davey Hamilton, Kyle LeDuc, Arie Luyendyk
Jr., Mike Jenkins and Ricky Johnson.

Influenced by the former Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Racing Series, where
driver’s such as Gordon, Casey Mears and six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson
got their start, Gordon created SST to capitalize on the public’s overwhelming
interest in trucks and SUVs as well as the fact that the majority of automotive
aftermarket parts are marketed for trucks.

PJ Jones Rolls To Victory In Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nev. (November 8, 2013) – The final race of the 2013 Inaugural Season of SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks would see the high-powered formula off-road vehicles tackle the temporary constructed asphalt course at Caesars Palace under the lights of Las Vegas, just steps away from the famous Las Vegas strip.

The day would begin with SST’s taking to the track for morning and afternoon practice sessions, before clocking a best of 2-laps qualifying run. Keegan Kincaid of Crandon, Wisc., driving the Traxxas sponsored No. 47 for Mike Jenkins laid down the quickest lap with a 23.436. Robby Gordon would qualify in the second position with a 23.558, and Jerrett Brooks qualifying third with a 24.043.

Friday night’s SST final would see P.J. Jones and Rob MacCachren pace the 30-lap SST final to green. The races original start would be called back as Arie Luyendyk Jr. would charge into Scotty Steele’s truck in turn 2, as the trucks became lodged together the red flag came out. After a complete restart Jones would lead lap-1 followed by MacCachren and Brooks.

The next 5 laps the top three would remain the same as Jones extented his lead to nearly four truck lengths ahead of MacCachren. On Lap-8, Brooks would miss his mark in turn 2 allowing Gordon to slip by into the third position.

On Lap-15 mechanical failure would strike multiple trucks, including championship points leader MacCachren would slow on the front stretch ending his run in the second position. At nearly the same time, Gordon and Sheldon Creed would also encounter mechanical woes.

Creed would retire the No. 74 Magnaflow entry early while MacCachren and Gordon would return to the race for valuable championship points.

Restarting in the fifth position Gordon did not waste any time moving back into the top 3. The front runners would consist of Jones, Brooks, and Gordon for the next 7 laps until Brooks would encounter a mechanical issue allowing Gordon to overtake the second position. Brooks would lose several positions before eventually dropping out of competition, allowing youngster Scotty Steele to move into the podium contention.

In hot pursuit of Jones for the remaining circuits Gordon’s quest for his fourth win of 2013 would evaporate as Jones, would go on to capture his first ever SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win. Gordon would cross the finish line in second while Steele would earn his first SST podium finish.

With MacCachren encountering mechanical issues late in the SST final, Gordon would go on to clinch the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks inaugural season points championship by just 7 points.

Watch for the 2014 SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks season schedule to be released in the upcoming weeks.

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.

On the day of the event, access to the valet at The Forum Shops will be limited.

Rob MacCachren & Jerrett Brooks Win At Crandon

Crandon, Wisc. (September 1, 2013) – Making the highly anticipated return to the World Championships, the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks invaded the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Crandon, Wis., for rounds No. 9 and 10 of SST competition. 10 SST drivers would take to the track including the new drivers of Craig Potts, Brock Heger and Scotty Steele.

 On Friday evenings Round No. 9, Rob MacCachren, of Las Vegas, Nev., driving the No. 21 Traxxas truck, would make a late race pass en route to capturing his fourth SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win of the season.

 The 12-Lap SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks final began from a land rush start and saw Robby Gordon of Orange, Calif., grab the holeshot ahead of Scottsdale, Ariz., native P.J. Jones.

 The Red flag was quickly displayed as Scotty Steele of Peoria, Ariz, lost the handle on his truck and made hard contact with a concrete retaining block causing extensive damage to his truck and ending his SST debut early. On the restart MacCachren would be the truck on the move as he moved past Justin Lofton into the second position setting his sights on the leader Gordon.

 The battle for the lead would heat up in the laps following as Gordon did all he could to hold off the hard charging MacCachren. Following Gordon for multiple laps, MacCachren made his move on Gordon going up the hill and never looked back as he went on to take the Traxxas sponsored entry to the Round No. 9 victory ahead of Gordon and Jerrett Brooks.

 After the race, an excited MacCachren commented on winning Stadium SUPER Trucks Round No.9;

 “Crandon SST Round No.9, driving the No. 21 Traxxas truck. I had a lot of fun out there. Practice did not go very well for us as we ended up seizing up a power steering pulley and I only was able to make 2 laps of practice. I did not know what to expect, and I needed to get out there and learn the track. Fortunately I was able to follow, watch, learn and finally set sail there and get by Robby (Gordon) with the momentum going over the big jump. After that, I just needed to settle in and make no mistakes. These trucks are fun to drive, as they are very difficult to drive. Going out there and being successful is a huge accomplishment to me. The SST series is good we are leading the points, and we need to keep having consistent good finishes.”

 Sunday afternoon’s Round No. 10 SST finale of the 2013 World Championships would become a history-making event for the ages.

 As the 10 SST trucks would begin from the Crandon famous land rush start, youngster Jerrett Brooks would capture the holeshot ahead of P.J. Jones. Point contender Robby Gordon would find trouble on the opening lap spinning around the SPEED Energy / Toyo Tires entry. Brooks would go on to lead the next four laps with close friend and classmate Sheldon Creed directly behind him. Creed would use the knowledge of following Brooks to his advantage at the conclusion of Lap-6.

 Caution would fly at the halfway point and something new to SST would be performed. The trucks would race on the course in reverse the last 6-Laps. The epic battle between Creed and Brooks continued right where it left off before the caution flag, as Creed would jump out to the early lead with Brooks directly in tow. Creed would make a costly mistake on Lap-8 and Brooks capitalize racing by him back into the lead.

 The man on the move, however, was Gordon, racing past points leader Rob MacCachren and P.J. Jones to overtake the third position. P.J. Jones great run would come to an end, after making hard contact with the inside concrete barrier causing extensive front end damage to his American Racing Wheels truck. Jones continued to drive his beaten and battered truck around the track, collecting as many valuable points as possible. The battered Jones truck eventually would stall at the exit of the track, where a few moments later Justin Lofton driving the J6 Ink entry would meet him for a brief discussion.

 Brooks would go to lead the remaining 4-Laps to take the No. 77 Synergy Electric truck to the Round No.10 victory over of Creed and Gordon. Brooks would be marked down in history as the second victory for a teenager in SST competition.

 After the race an extremely excited Jerrett Brooks commented on his first ever SST win;

 “I came out and got my first holeshot in my only my second time racing this track, Sheldon gave me a tremendous battle the first half of the race, and we came to the second half where we ran the track backwards. I got a good pass on Sheldon right away, and just started hitting my lines lap after lap trying to stay on the cushion as much as possible, extending my lead on Sheldon little by little. He gained a little on me on the last lap, but the No. 77 Synergy Electric Truck came out with the win.”

SST Returns to Crandon for Rounds 9 & 10

CHARLOTTE (August 5, 2013) – Since 1970, off-road enthusiasts have gathered over the Labor Day weekend at the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Wisconsin for the World Championship® of Off-Road racing, a closed-course event where top short-course competitors battle side-by-side in hopes to be crowned the 2013 World Champion.

“Having Rounds No. 9 and 10 at Crandon is a natural fit. It’s the first place we introduced the SST trucks and after the great response in 2012 it is only fitting to showcase 2 rounds of racing,” stated Robby Gordon.

Since debuting April 6th at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ, SST has run eight points races in two countries (USA and Canada). Five of the rounds were held in stadiums like the famed Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego and the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on courses built specifically for the SST’s performance on asphalt and dirt. SST made their Indy Car debut at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in April and most recently held two events at the Honda Indy Toronto.

Eight rounds of competition have produced four different main event winners. Points leader, Rob MacCachren leads the way with three wins, followed by Justin Lofton and Robby Gordon tied with two each and rookie driver Sheldon Creed capturing one win.
