SPEED Energy Formula Off Road Announces 2015 Schedule

Stadium Super Trucks Schedule to Feature Events in Eight U.S. Markets, Australia and Canada

SPEED Off Road EnergyCHARLOTTE, N.C. (December 8, 2014)SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS announced today its 2015 schedule, which will feature a diverse and exciting mix of venues and track layouts including popular stadium venues, several prominent Verizon IndyCar Series races and prestigious international events.

“Developing such a strong schedule for next year allows us to continue to provide a platform for Stadium Super Trucks presented by TRAXXAS in major markets,” said Robby Gordon, owner. “Next season our trucks will race in front of enthusiastic crowds across the country, as well as in international markets. That will allow the series and our competitors to gain world-wide exposure.

“We’ve been invited to race at some of the most popular venues on the IndyCar circuit and we’re super pumped to be going back to stadiums where we will build the most amazing track configurations that will blow fans away.”

SPEED The season kicks off with a full field of SSTs on Feb. 27-March 1 in Adelaide, Australia, where the series will race with the V8 Supercars at the Clipsal 500 in front of an anticipated crowd of more than 250,000.

The TRAXXAS sponsored and inspired SST trucks will then travel to Florida to race during the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (March 27-29), one of four IndyCar companion events in 2015. In addition, the series will be a part of the following IndyCar event weekends: the Grand Prix of Long Beach, California (April 17-19), the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit presented by Quicken Loans (May 29-31) and the Honda Indy Toronto (June 12-14).

The series’ 2015 schedule will also feature wildly popular stadium racing, which takes place in both Phoenix (May 8-9) and San Diego (May 15-16). Stand-alone urban off-road events will take place in Los Angeles (September/October) and Las Vegas (Nov. 4-5).

SPEED Details related to an event held in Texas on the weekend of June 5-7 will be announced separately.

All 10 races will again be broadcast on a major sports network in 2015, with the broadcast partner and specific air times and dates to be announced later.

“This schedule allows us to continue to bring off-road racing to the masses,” Gordon said. “We have built SST races to be great family events and these venues also allow our teams, drivers and sponsors to connect directly with some of the most enthusiastic sports fans in the world.”

Before the 2015 season kicks off in Adelaide, Australia, several of the SSTs will close out 2014 in Barbados as featured vehicles for 13 of the world’s top drivers in the annual end-of-season Race of Champions. The Dec. 13-14 event at Bushy Park will include drivers from Formula 1, IndyCar, MotoGP, Le Mans, NASCAR, World RallyCross and Touring Cars. SST founder and owner Robby Gordon will compete in the event for the second time – his first coming in 2001.

About Stadium Super Trucks

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 re-launch the former stadium series has led to exciting racing on both asphalt and dirt, while producing one of the most extreme forms of action sports today.

Other than the trucks launching 20 feet in the air covering distances more than 150 feet, 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. Race winners are decided by driver skill 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-horsepower trucks.
