Robby-Gordon-Stadium-Super-Trucks-4-27-13Los Angeles, Calif. (April 27, 2013) – SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks made the return to the birthplace of Stadium truck racing on a specifically designed dirt and asphalt course inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, Calif.

Mike Jenkins began the qualifying session, running 3 smooth laps. Next was Lalo Laguna as he blistered a quick lap of 42.123 jumping to top of the charts. Laguna remained the quick qualifier throughout much of the event even after successful laps by off-road new comers Arie Luyendyk and Nick Baumgartner. P.J. Jones found trouble on his third qualifying lap turning the American Racing Wheels No. 98 over on its side.

Charlotte, N.C. – SPEED Energy Drink is proud to join the festivities at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach as the Official Energy Drink Sponsor with a display in the Lifestyle Expo and will be sampled and sold throughout the facility during the April 19-21 event.

SPEED Energy’s Street Team will be on-hand to sample product and sell merchandise to the thousands of fans that will be a part of the weekend event.

“To have SPEED Energy the Official Energy Drink of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach makes great sense for both the race and us as a company,” said Robby Gordon, CEO of SPEED Energy Drink. “It’s a marketplace that is very exciting, up-scale event that is in our backyard. The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach is a SPEED weekend. Full of high octane racing machines, including our very own Stadium SUPER Trucks that will provide a great show for the race fans. To have our product showcased at this event is an honor and we’re excited about the opportunity. We look forward to race fans being able to touch, feel, taste and purchase SPEED Energy at the track. I think the Long Beach weekend is going to be a marquee weekend for us and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about it.”

The NASCAR world got the first glimpse of Robby Gordon’s newest venture last weekend at the Talladega Speedway, but the off-road world may just be learning of his exciting new news.

Last weekend at Talladega, Gordon announced that he and longtime friend and attorney Steven Nichols have formed a partnership to manufacture, distribute and retail a new energy drink called Speed Energy. Gordon’s announcement came at a press conference before the NASCAR race, and he sported the new logo on the side of his #7 Toyota for the first time last weekend. He noted at the press conference that Speed Energy will come in three different flavors that include Unleaded, Fuel and Octane.
