Back to Back Runner Up Finishes for Gordon at SST Toronto Grand Prix

 

TORONTO, Ontario, Canada (July 20, 2014) – Sheldon Creed completed a weekend sweep in the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race at Toronto Sunday by edging Robby Gordon for the second day in a row winning both weekend races.

Unlike Saturday’s slippery track, warm and dry conditions produced a thrilling battle between Creed and Gordon. The two drivers battled relentlessly for virtually the entire 10-lap race, with nearly every fan in attendance at the 11-turn street circuit in Toronto standing to watch the spectacle, with thousands crowding the fence line with camera phones in hand.

 

It’s obviously pretty cool to win two times in a row here at Toronto,” Creed, 16, said. “Today was a much better race given that it was dry. We could go hard and Robby and I had a great battle. We both got sideways in turn 3 there at the end and I was able to put some distance between us, but about three turns later he was back on my bumper.

 

I leaned on him a little bit there and he gave it back to me,” Gordon said. “Sheldon did a great job as did Scotty and both of these guys are going places with their careers. People will hear a lot about them for years to come. I could get to Sheldon’s bumper, but I had to check up going over the jumps to make sure that I didn’t land on him.

 

NBCSN will broadcast the race at 10 p.m. PDT on July 31 (1 a.m. EDT Aug. 1). Following its trip to Toronto, the series will shift to the west coast for its final four races of the 2014 season at the Sand Sport Super Show in Orange County, Calif. Sept. 19-20; the Coronado Speed Festival Sept. 21 and Las Vegas in conjunction with the SEMA Show in early November.
