Robby-Gordon-SST-Sand-Sport-9-21-13Costa Mesa, Calif. – On a brisk Southern California day, SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks invaded the opening day of the 2013 Sand Sports Super Show in Costa Mesa, Calif., for a night of practice, qualifying, along with Trophy Kart, 1400 Truck and SST main events.

After multiple practice sessions, the Stadium SUPER Trucks took to the temporary track for the best of 2-lap qualifying session. Brawley, Calif., native, Justin Lofton, edged out Wisconsin native Keegan Kincaid by .005 to capture the quick time with a lap of 58.222.

Rob-MacCachren-Stadium-Super-Trucks-6-10-13St. Louis, Mo. – After the first five events primarily on the west coast, SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks brought the 600 hp high flying machines inside the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Mo., for a night of urban off-road action. Rob MacCachren, Aaron Basl, and Sheldon Creed were able to conquer the multiple challenges of the tacky Missouri clay to record wins in Round No. 6 of SST Competition.

Rob MacCachren, of Las Vegas, Nev., driving the No. 21 Traxxas truck made a late race pass to en route to capturing his third SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win of the season.
The 18-Lap SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks final began from a staggered start and saw first place starter Arie Luyendyk Jr. of Scottsdale, Ariz., jump out to the early lead ahead of SST newcomer Keegan Kincaid.

On Lap-2, the No. 25 Team Arie truck would find trouble completing just one of the corners and slipping back multiple positions. Kincaid would inherit the lead in front of Iron River, Mich., native Nick Baumgartner.

The Traxxas TORC Series returned to Crandon International Raceway for the Forest County Potawatomi, Chairman’s Cup race, Rounds 5 and 6 of the series. For the first time, Ultra4 racers got to race on the legendary track known as the “Big House.”

The Chairman’s Cup Race pits Pro-2 (two wheel drive) and Pro-4 (four wheel drive) racers against each other for a ten lap shoot-out. The Pro-2 drivers start ahead of the Pro-4′s to give them a better chance against the Pro-4′s superior traction in the dirt. At some point in the closing laps the charging Pro-4′s catch up to the Pro-2′s, if they’re lucky.

This year the King Shocks equipped Ram/Mopar number 21 Pro-2 was able to run away and take the victory. Second spot went to the King Shocks equipped, Real Tree Energy Pro-4 of Adrian Cenni who drove the last few laps with a flat rear tire. The battle for third and fourth was between Teammates and Brothers Mark and Mike Jenkins in their King Shocks equipped, Traxxas Pro-4′s. They both crossed the line at what looked like a tie but the win went to Mike by just a hair. King Shocks racers Mike Oberg, Scott Taylor and Jeff Kincaid finished 6th-8th.
