Robby Gordon Wins First of Two Races At MGM Resorts Village in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Nov. 1, 2014) – Robby Gordon capitalized on an uncharacteristic mistake by IndyCar veteran E.J. Viso and won Saturday’s SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race at the MGM Resorts Village. 

Gordon held off an aggressive run by TRAXXAS driver Keegan Kincaid who took a spot on an SST podium for the third consecutive race.  Burt Jenner in the Gladiator/House Beer truck came home third marking the first podium finish in his SST career.

“I had my sights set on E.J. Viso and Keegan who were running great races right in front of me,” said SPEED Energy driver Gordon when asked if he saw the great racing in his rear view mirror.  “E.J. was running a great race and he clipped the K-Rail there a little bit – actually he clobbered it – and we capitalized.  Viso’s contact forced the LIVE driver behind the wall.

Allowing Gordon to go on to win the 24-lap final event ahead of Crandon, Wisconsin's Keegan Kincaid, and Los Angeles, California's Burt Jenner.
