No Limits, Texas (June 9, 2019) – SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks continue the 2018 World Championship with its second appearance at the Texas Motor Speedway for the this weekend’s Off-Road Rumble with Race 1 scheduled before the Verizon IndyCar Series on Saturday afternoon, and Race 2 scheduled after the conclusion of the DXC Technology 600 Saturday night.

Last year’s race on the make shift dirt and asphalt circuit of the Texas Motor Speedway proved to be a huge hit with the use of a 70 foot dirt cross over jump and multiple 36 in. tall aluminum ramps on the front stretch. The thrilling obstacles the Stadium SUPER Trucks tackle throughout each corner provides a completely different form of racing compared to the 1.5 mile Texas Motor Speedway oval the much faster IndyCars will be competing on.

Last year’s Race 1 saw P.J. Jones withstand a high impact filled race to capture the win by a huge margin over Robby Gordon, while Race 2 saw 2015 & 2016 SST World Champion Sheldon Creed put on a driving clinic from the second row to capture the victory.

The thrilling racing left a memorable mark on the estimated 45,000 IndyCar fans in attendance ultimately urging the Texas Motor Speedway promoters to bring the high flying SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks back in 2018 for an encore performance.

The starting lineup for Saturday’s race one was determined from each driver’s fastest lap time in Friday night’s qualifying session. Following the qualifying session, a full field inversion from fastest to slowest was put in place, meaning Aaron Bambach, from Rochester Hills, Michigan, will start from pole alongside SST veteran Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Row two will consist of SST newcomer E.J. Chiba of Tokyo, Japan making his first ever SST start, while Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona will see his first ever appearance at the famed Texas Motor Speedway in race trim. The third row will find 2017 Stadium SUPER Trucks Champion Paul Morris of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia and Yucca Valley, California driver Blade Hildebrand.

Robby Gordon of Orange, California in the Toyo Tires truck will make up the fourth row just ahead of last years Texas Motor Speedway overall winner Gavin Harlien of Mesa, Arizona.

TEAM UFD teammates Arie Luyendyk Jr. of Scottsdale, Arizona and Jeff Hoffman of Phoenix, Arizona will make up the fifth row, while fast qualifier Matt Brabham of Gold Coast, Queensland, California will start at the tail of the field.

SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Race 1 will be contested Saturday afternoon at 5:15 P.M. CT local time while Race 2 will get the green flag 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Verizon IndyCar Series DXC Technology 600 at approximately 10:15 P.M. CT local time.

About SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks


Influenced by the former Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Racing Series, where drivers such as Gordon, Casey Mears and seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson got their start, Gordon created SST in response to the public’s overwhelming interest in trucks and off-road racing. His plan to re-launch the former stadium series has led to exciting racing on both asphalt and dirt, while producing one of the most extreme forms of action sports today.

Other than the trucks launching 20 feet in the air covering distances more than 150 feet, what sets the SST program apart from other series is the fact that all the SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition. Race winners are decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets. Drivers and their personal mechanics are assigned specific SST mechanics who together tune and make minor adjustments to the 600-horsepower trucks.
