SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks™ to Run Rounds No. 7 & 8 at Honda Indy Toronto

 

Speed EnergyCHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 25, 2013) – Since 1986, the streets of Toronto have hosted some of the greatest moments in motorsports, with legendary drivers from CART/Champ Car and IndyCar, including Andretti, Rahal, Unser, Fittipaldi and Canadians Tracy, Villeneuve and Moore.

On July 13 and 14, history will once again look to be written with two unprecedented street course races by the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks™.

Round No. 7 of SST competition will take to the temporary street course at the conclusion of Saturday’s IZOD IndyCar Series main event while Round No. 8 will roll off Sunday just prior to the green flag of the IZOD IndyCar Series® finale.

It has been a long-time vision of series President, Robby Gordon to redevelop and continue this unique form of off-road racing that was immensely popular more than 20 years ago – known then as the Mickey Thompson Off-Road Championship.

“Toronto is going to be something insane,” said Gordon. “Imagine these 600 HP machines drifting around corners and hitting metal jumps, flying over 50 feet through the air on the famous street course that has seen legendary names such as Andretti and Unser compete on it. To run our Stadium SUPER Trucks Series here is a great thing for us, as we get to bring even more fun and excitement to the IndyCar event of Toronto, showing race fans what off-road trucks can really do on asphalt.”

Speed Energy1Gordon, whom himself made seven starts on the streets of Toronto in the early and mid-1990s with CART / Champ Car scored a track best fifth in 1995, will be gunning to capture his first win on the legendary street course.

Race fans will surely get an eyeful as the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks go to battle, going door-to-door and airborne (over specially constructed metal ramps) on the 11-turn, 1.75-mile street course circuit for the pair of unique races.

“The addition of the Stadium SUPER Trucks will round out a full complement of spectacular on track action, and I’m sure our race fans and event goers alike will be thoroughly entertained by this truly unique show.” said Charlie Johnstone, President, Honda Indy Toronto.

Ticket prices for the Honda Indy Toronto range from $35 for a Saturday general admission ticket to $50 for a two-day general admission ticket. For tickets and a full festival schedule visit hondaindy.com or call (877) 503-6869.
