Robby Gordon Wins Stadium SUPER Trucks Night 1 in Costa Mesa, California

Robby Gordon Wins Stadium SUPER Trucks Night 1 in Costa Mesa, California

Costa Mesa, California (September 16, 2016) – On a night where 11 Stadium SUPER Truck (SST) drivers returned to the series’ roots in Southern California, it was Robby Gordon who came out on top besting P.J. Jones at the OC Fair and Event Center Friday night.

The temporary race track the SST staff built adjacent to the world renown Sand Sports Super Show features various aspects of the 2016 SST World Championship season including sweeping high-speed turns, a difficult sand pit section, multiple tight corners, and a massive cross-over jump that sends competitors flying over another section of the race track with trucks passing directly underneath.

After a series of single truck qualifying runs and heat races, Friday’s 20-lap main event– which featured the entire field of SST’s on DOT approved Toyo Open Country A/T II tires saw TRAXXAS driver Matt Brabham from Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia jump out to the early lead after the land rush standing start. Brabham would remain in that position until getting pressure from Orange, California’s Robby Gordon whom muscled his way past truck after truck to the front of the field. Brabham would hold off the hard charging Gordon for multiple laps until Gordon would opt to take the joker lane late in the event and slip past Brabham by a near bumper.

The last lap would see Brabham trying hard to get back past Gordon, but would come up short as P.J. Jones substitute driving for Pat O’Keefe in the SafeCraft Safety Systems truck would quietly work his way into contention and make contact with Brabham moving him out of the way.
Gordon would go on to win the event ahead of Jones, and the third finishing Brabham.

Sara Price of Canyon Lake, Calif. racing in front of many hometown friends and family in the her United Fiber and Data/BitTorrent truck would remain patient throughout the event running her own race. A late race mishap by Arie Luyendyk Jr. would allow her to capitalize on the position. Price would go on to claim her best SST finish to date in the fourth position.

Back in the Royal Purple Synthetic Oil colors this weekend Arie Luyendyk Jr. of Scottsdale, Ariz. would run with the top four competitors majority of the race until contact with the retaining wall with four laps to go would allow Price to slip by. Luyenkdyk would be credited with the fifth position.

Norwell, Queensland, Australia driver Paul Morris would find trouble with six laps remaining putting his United Fiber & Data No. 67 truck on its roof thru the treacherous sand pit. In typical SST fashion track officials rolled the truck back over and Morris was able to continue the 20-lap event finishing in the sixth spot.

Short course ace Kyle LeDuc of Beaumont, Calif. driving the Toyo Tires/ 4 Wheel Parts truck would battle power steering issues all night. As the SST technicians would thrash to get it fixed for the final, Leduc would run Robby Gordon’s Arctic Cat/ Toyo Tires truck in the qualifying heat. Adapting quickly to the challenging course configuration of the Costa Mesa track in his own truck for the final Leduc would race to finish respectfully in the seventh position.

2016 SST World Championship points’ leader Sheldon Creed of Alpine, Calif. would quickly race out to the front of the pack and challenge for the lead but a broken axle would damper that effort suddenly. Looking to gain as many points as he possibly could Creed would limp his battered and bruised TRAXXAS truck to a eighth place finish.

Returning to the facility where he made his first SST start in 2014, Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Penn. would drive a consistent and smart race to finish the United Fiber & Data truck in the ninth position.

SuperKart driver Troy Diede of Lodi, Calif. making his first ever SST start held his ground early in the main event as he quickly raced out to the early lead from his first starting position. Laying down consistent laps Diede would find himself running in the top five for majority of the event until contact with P.J. Jones would spin him around losing valuable track time to the leaders. Staying out of trouble for the entire race Diede successfully finished his first SST race in the tenth position.

After having various scheduling conflicts the last few months Tyler McQuarrie of Walnut Creek, Calif. left off right where he did the last time he sat in his SafeCraft Saftey Systems Stadium SUPER Truck. The tight and narrow corners of the temporary Costa Mesa track suited the driving style of the professional drifter as he ran in the top three majority of the main event before mechanical failure forced the ultra quick driver out of competition. McQuarrie would be credited with the eleventh position.

The second and final race during the Sand Sports Super Show weekend for the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS will take place Saturday night at the OC Fair and Event Center. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. PST with racing starting at 7 p.m. PST.

While at the Sand Sports Super Show and SST race make sure to stop by and visit both Arctic Cat displays for new 2017 models and products. The main display will be located in the Sand Sports Super Show, while a smaller version will be located in the Stadium SUPER Trucks pit area.

These desert racers turned short course machines have been apart of the Stadium SUPER Trucks Sand Sports Super Show program since the inception back in 2013, and when they are on track you never know what to expect. In 2014 Michael Cox stole the show launching his modified Ford Bronco sky high much to the delight of the roaring crowd, last year it was Buddy Baker and Ryan Kibbe with the TrophyLTD car whom stunned the crowd and other competitors competing with the trucks. Who will be the highlight of the 1400 class in 2016?

Single- day tickets are $30 for adults, $15 for kids under 12, Police, Fire and active or retired military with a valid ID. All tickets will be sold at the gate on race day. Friday’s event will feature Kids free for kids under 12.

Texas Motor Speedway Adds Stadium SUPER Trucks to 2017 Race Schedule


Fort Worth, Texas (August 27, 2016)-
Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage announced today the addition of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS to the speedway’s racing lineup in 2017.

The addition of Stadium SUPER Trucks will create a diverse tripleheader weekend in June as the racing series will be paired with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Verizon IndyCar Series. The Stadium SUPER trucks feature event will take place in advance of the Firestone 600 on Saturday, June 10.

The widely popular SST Series features 12 identically prepared 650-horsepower trucks that are built to take flight much like their scaled down TRAXXAS radio-control-car counterparts. Able to race on virtually any surface, the SST trucks will race along the speedway’s pit road, frontstretch and portion of the infield. A detailed layout of the course will be announced at a later date.

Compared to the oval racing of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Verizon IndyCar Series, the SST races will feature 36-inch tall aluminum ramps placed in strategic locations throughout the course, allowing the trucks to fly 20 feet off the ground and hundreds of feet down the course, all while hitting speeds upwards of 140 miles per hour.

The announcement was made by Gossage and former INDYCAR and NASCAR driver Robby Gordon, who created the series in 2013, at Texas Motor Speedway prior to Saturday night’s resumption of the Firestone 600 that was suspended from its June date due to weather-related issues.

“For Stadium SUPER Trucks to return back to the state of Texas, after competing at X Games Austin for two successful years, I cannot be more excited,” Stadium SUPER Trucks President Robby Gordon said. “When you think of Texas two things come to mind; trucks and things that are big. Stadium SUPER Trucks gives you both, with the excitement of competitive door-to-door racing with big air.”

Stadium SUPER Trucks feature an 11-event schedule in 2016 spanning five different countries, touring as co-events with INDYCAR and V8 Supercar in Australia and New Zealand.

With a wide variety of drivers from all forms of motorsports, competitors such as 2015 series champion Sheldon Creed, Arie Luyendyk Jr., Tyler McQuarrie, as well as Australian’s Matt Brabham and Paul Morris all have an equal opportunity at winning.

Sheldon Creed Outduels TRAXXAS Teammate Matt Brabham for Honda Indy Toronto Victory

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (July 17, 2016) – In a complete role reversal of Saturday afternoons race, Sheldon Creed captured Sunday’s exciting SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS (SST) closing event of the Honda Indy Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada by besting his TRAXXAS teammate, and Saturday’s winner; Gold Coast, QLD, Australia driver Matt Brabham by a margin of .004 seconds.

Tenth Starting Robby Gordon of Orange, Calif. would waste no time getting to the front of the field tracking down SST’s first female competitor and early race leader Sara Price of Canyon Lake, Calif. on Lap-4. Following the tracks of the Gordon in the Arctic Cat/ Toyo Tires/ SPEED Energy No. 7 to the front from their eleventh and twelfth starting positions, TRAXXAS teammates Sheldon Creed of Alpine, Calif. and Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia would waste no time looking for the lead.

Right before the competition caution would fly Creed would nab the lead from Gordon, followed by Brabham in third. The restart would see Creed try to block Gordon for the lead, but Gordon would be too much for Creed to handle. Setting back into the second position Creed and Brabham would tandem draft down the back straight as the two TRAXXAS trucks would blow past the Gordon’s machine into the first and second positions.

The final four laps would see Brabham pull his No. 83 truck along side the 2015 SST Champion in a challenge for the lead. Racing side-by-side much of the race circuit Brabham and Creed would alternate the lead six different times three-wheeling through the corners and putting on an absolute display of driving talent.

Just like the day before the final lap would see the two TRAXXAS drivers continue to go side-by-side all around the Honda Indy Toronto street circuit with the capacity Canadian crowd on their feet with ecstatic cheers. Coming off the final corner Creed and Brabham would race neck and neck to the checkered flag. Creed would make contact with the side of Brabham causing him to fall off the side of the second jump coming to the checkered flag. The contact was enough to allow Creed to grab the victory by a mirror .004 seconds.

Sunday’s victory would be Creed’s seventh victory of the 2016 season.

Much like the position Paul Morris was in one day prior Gordon held the best seat in the house to view the multi-lap duel of the TRAXXAS drivers out in front of the field. Gordon waiting for both drivers to take each other out and capture the win would have to settle for finishing in the third position.

Looking to improve on his fifth place finish from Saturday; Singleton, New South Wales, Australia driver Toby Price would keep his SafeCraft Safety Equipment No. 87 clean sticking with the leaders and would capitalize on a late race spin by Norwell, Queensland, Australia driver Paul Morris. Price would cross the line in a respectable fourth position while Morris would be credited with the fifth spot.

Inver Grove Heights, Minn. driver Dustin Scott would advance one position from his seventh starting spot to claim the sixth position for the second straight day driving his SPEED Energy/ Cobra Transportation No. 20 truck.

Making his second start in a SST race, veteran CART/Champ Car and NASCAR driver Max Papis of Como, Italy would study extensive in-car video over the evening, and the results would show holding with the lead pack most of race. Papis whom was upset with his showing on Saturday, finished in a respectable seventh position and can’t wait to get back behind the wheel again to improve even more.

Scottsdale, Ariz. driver P.J. Jones was credited with the eighth position in the United Fiber & Data No. 98 after making slight contact with various trucks and falling back in the field.

Sara Price in just her second SST start would use all the knowledge she learned in Saturday’s first event to turn heads and capitalize on a mistake by Paul Tracy to drive her BitTorrent No. 78 truck to the lead on Lap-1. Price was able to lead her first three-laps before Gordon and Creed would work there by on the inside to the front of the field. Holding her ground Price would run with the lead pack for most of the event until the brakes would fade considerably forcing her to miss the braking zone on multiple corners ultimately finishing in a very respectable ninth place finish.

Third starting Russell Boyle of Toronto, Ontario, Canada driving the KMC Wheels/ NGStone/ Morgan No. 93 entered Sunday’s event looking to improve on yesterday’s skirmish with Toronto rival Paul Tracy. Boyle would loose the handle on his truck multiple times in the 11-lap event to finish in the tenth position in the final run down.

Bill Hynes from Nazareth, Penn. driving the United Fiber & Data truck was credited with the eleventh position after spinning and stalling his truck on Lap-8 and was unable to finish the scheduled amount of laps.

Fourth starting Paul Tracy of Scarborough, Ont., Canada would quickly jump out to an early lead as the Canadian fans went ecstatic. However, much like Saturday afternoon Tracy would encounter problems leading the race. Missing a breaking zone Tracy would stuff his Royal Purple Synthetic Oil truck into the tire barrier causing extensive damage to his No. 30 machine.

Matt Brabham would capture the overall win for the weekend with the lowest average of both races with his win on Saturday, and his second place finish Sunday, Second was claimed by Sheldon Creed, while the overall podium was completed by Robby Gordon in third.

The next event in the season-long SST World Championship will see the excitement of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS return to the dirt and sand of Southern California with the Sand Sports Super Show event September 16-17.

With a small redesign of the fast and technical temporary street circuit that makes up the 11-turn 1.755-mile (2.824 km) street course, many drivers would struggle to hit their marks throughout Friday’s practice session getting into the outside tire barriers.

However, two drivers that would have no issues hitting all their marks and making there way through the field in Saturday’s race would be fast qualifier Matt Brabham of Gold, Queensland, Australia and Alpine, Calif. driver Sheldon Creed the two TRAXXAS drivers aggressively charged past truck after truck from their eleventh and twelfth starting positions to the withstand a plethora of contact and spinning trucks to place themselves in a shootout for the win the final four laps.

After the competition caution waved on Lap-4, Creed and Brabham would make their ultimate move to the front of the field as early race leader Paul Tracy from Scarborough, Ontario, Canada would spin his Royal Purple Synthetic Oil SST in an attempt to avoid the out of control skidding SafeCraft Safety Equipment truck of Singleton, New South Wales, Australia driver Toby Price. Both drivers would spin, allowing the third and fourth running Creed and Brabham to capitalize and claim the top two positions.

The next lap would see Brabham pull his No. 83 truck along side the 2015 SST Champion in a challenge for the lead. Racing side-by-side much of the race circuit Brabham and Creed would alternate the lead five different times three-wheeling through the corners and putting on an absolute display of driving talent setting up a last lap shootout.

The final lap would see the two TRAXXAS drivers go side-by-side all around the Honda Indy Toronto street circuit as the Canadian fans erupted with amazement. Coming to the final corners Brabham pulling ahead of Creed going on to capture his third Stadium SUPER Trucks win of the 2016 season.

Lurking in the distance United Fiber & Data racer Paul Morris of Norwell, Queensland, Australia held the best seat in the house to view the multi-lap duel of TRAXXAS drivers out in front of the field. Morris would not have enough time to catch the leaders, as he would go on to cross the finish line behind Creed in the third position.

Robby Gordon from Orange, Calif. debuting a new racecar this weekend would finish fourth in the Arctic Cat/Toyo Tires/ SPEED Energy backed entry, while Singleton, New South Wales, Australia MotoRally superstar Toby Price rounded out the top five in his SafeCraft Safety Equipment No. 87 truck after recovering from a mid-race spin.

After making contact early in the event with Scottsdale, Ariz. driver P.J. Jones, Dustin Scott from Inver Grove Heights, Minn. would recover from spinning, and restarting at the back of the field to place his SPEED Energy/Cobra Transportation No. 20 truck in the sixth position. Jones would follow Scott to cross the finish line the seventh spot.

Making Stadium SUPER Trucks history as the first woman to ever start an SST event, Champion Motocross and UTV racer Sara Price of Canyon Lake, Calif., would drive a consistent and smart race to finish the BitTorrent No. 78 truck in the eighth position.

Early race leader Paul Tracy would encounter more trouble in his quest to get back to the front. Tracy would make contact with 16-year old Toronto native Russell Boyle making whom his third ever SST start driving the KMC Wheels/ NGStone/ Toronto Motorsports No. 93. Boyle would make heavy contact with the Royal Purple Synthetic Oil truck sending it spinning. Tracy would retaliate and spin out Boyle back.
