Stadium Super Trucks: Organizers announces 2014 SST Race Schedule





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 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.

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.
