LONG BEACH, Calif.
– Sheldon Creed captured the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS race No. 2 at the Grand Prix of Long Beach Sunday in an amazing duel with Robby Gordon that had the thousands of fans that lined the 11 turn 1.968-mile street circuit on their feet the entire race in pure amazement how thrilling these SST races truly are.

Immediately from the start of the race this became a race for the ages, as Orange, Calif. driver Robby Gordon would jump out to an early lead on Lap-2 from his sixth starting position, as Alpine, Calif. driver Sheldon Creed would navigate through the traffic jam with perfection to place his TRAXXAS truck right on the rear bumper of Gordon from twelfth. The only two SST Champions in it’s four year history where prepared to put on a show for the capacity crowd that stuck around after the IndyCar event to witness the high-flying, tire squealing chaos we call Stadium SUPER Trucks.

Bob “The Weatherman” Steinberger will be Grand Marshal of the 2016 NORRA, Mexican 1000.

In each video he pilots a heavily-modified Polaris RZR XP 1000 through a different off-road playground of jumps, obstacles and custom-built ramps. But regardless of how cool the final version of the video looks, make no mistake that Anderson and the filming crew have their share of bloopers and funny outtakes – not every stunt goes according to plan.
