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.

Robby Gordon Claims Victory in Sunday’s SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS 

CORONADO, California (Sept. 21, 2014) – Robby Gordon captured the Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race at the Coronado Speed Festival on the historic Naval Air Station North Island Sunday in front of a full house of military personnel and local San Diego area race enthusiasts.  The crowd included thousands of new Stadium Super Truck (SST) series fans who witnessed one of the most amazing feats possible in a race car at the conclusion of the second race.

The TRAXXAS SST race on the massive Navy Base across the Glorietta Bay from downtown San Diego, marked the third consecutive day the trucks raced in Southern California, with the first two races coming at Orange County’s Sand Sports Super Show Sept. 19-20.

Gordon and Kincaid shared top honors in Orange County.  The overall weekend win went to Gordon, followed by Kincaid and Steele.

Kincaid Holds of Gordon for Victory in a Saturday Night Duel at Sand Sports Super Show

COSTA MESA, California (Sept. 20, 2014) – Keegan Kincaid started on pole for Saturday’s SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS race, but his path to victory lane in Orange County was anything but smooth sailing for the Crandon, Wisc., off-road driver.

The competition caution at the 20-lap halfway point of the race found Kincaid behind Friday night’s winner and off-road racing legend Robby Gordon.  From the start of the race, it was again apparent it would be Gordon’s night as he took the lead from Kincaid within the first 100 feet of the standing start.  Kincaid stayed with the veteran Gordon and followed him to the line at the half-way point.  Knowing that he would have to drive the best 10-laps of his short SST career, the 24-year-old second-generation driver did just that, and capitalized on an issue Gordon had with his truck to overtake and pass the series founder.

“I was having so much fun out there racing Robby,” Kincaid said to the massive standing-room only crowd at the OC Fair & Event Center.  “It was a battle out there and I took the Joker Lane early and it paid off for me and when Robby had an issue with his truck I was able to capitalize on it.  All these fans, look at them all, they’re awesome and it’s great to get my first SST win for TRAXXAS.

The short course at the OC Fair & Event Center was by all accounts one of the best layouts in the history of the SST series which produced amazing racing and constant action for the capacity crowd. 

“These trucks and the solid crop of drivers we have here put on a great show,” series promoter and founder Gordon said.  “I think these Southern California fans here tonight saw the type of show these drivers and trucks put on we look forward to building this series and continuing to bring it to people all over the country.”
