NASCAR star Robby Gordon and his jaw-dropping Stadium SuperTrucks will wow the crowds at the Festival of Speed with a stunning display on (off, and above) the hillclimb.
A pair of the giant trucks, which race on and off road, flying through the air via dramatic ramps, will take part in demonstrations and competitive runs up the hill.
Now in its third season of competition, the SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS is a full series of races featuring identically prepared trucks resembling their smaller radio control TRAXXAS counterparts.
The trucks race at large IndyCar street circuit events, Australian V8 SuperCar races, in stadiums, on dirt and on paved surfaces. They provide an off-the-ground dimension to racing normally reserved for the off-road worlds of Baja and Dakar, which few American fans have an opportunity to witness in person.
The SST series has re-introduced fascinating elements of off-road racing to crowds regularly in excess of 100,000 fans at venues including the Long Beach Grand Prix, the Belle Isle Detroit Grand Prix, X Games Austin, the Clipsal 500 V8 SuperCar race in Adelaide, Australia and other high-profile events.
