– Following its hugely successful debut at X Games Austin, the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS series returns to competition at the Honda Indy Toronto this weekend.

The TRAXXAS trucks will be making their way to the popular Toronto IndyCar circuit for the second consecutive year after debuting in great style in 2013. The trucks will race twice in Toronto – at 2:20 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday – just as they did last season when Justin Lofton and Sheldon Creed won races on the 1.755-mile (2.84 km) circuit.

Las Vegas, NV
– If you go up against BJ Baldwin you better have both barrels loaded. Preparation, race strategy and mad skills behind the wheel are needed; three things BJ excels at. When an opportunity to run both the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 in his Monster Energy Trophy Truck and Formula Off Road in the #97 Toyo Tires truck the next day at the X Games in Austin, Texas BJ jumped at the chance.

First on the agenda was to prerun the Baja 500 course. SCORE International mixed things up this year; running the course in the opposite direction than usual. The drivers would head south from the start in Ensenada along the coast, climb over the mountains to the gulf side of the peninsula and then race north before turning back towards Ensenada for the finish. Prerunning is critical to a good race but it also allows BJ a chance to check out the incredible scenery, hand out Monster Energy stickers to the kids and eat some tacos.

Toyo Open Country tires are known for their traction, durability, and uniformity.  These qualities provide racers with sure footing for maximum performance, while the introduction of a spec tire further evens the competitive field.

The series was founded by former NASCAR® and IndyCar® driver Robby Gordon, who is also an off-road champion and long-time Team Toyo® driver.  The 600-plus horsepower SST trucks tackle a serpentine race course with ramp jumps that can launch them 20 feet in the air.  Speeds can reach as high as 130-mph, making for a true spectacle to excite the fans.

Stadium-Super-Trucks-Crandon-8-31-12DETROIT, Mich. – Adding even more excitement and bringing an extreme element to the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, it was confirmed today that the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks (SST) Series will compete at next summer’s event, May 30-June 1, 2014.

In only its second season and coming off a wildly-popular debut in 2013, the SST Series will compete on the 2.3-mile Raceway at Belle Isle Park street circuit with two races run during Grand Prix weekend. The high-flying trucks will launch from a standing start for each race and they jump ramps that will be set up on the Grand Prix race circuit.

With trucks expected to reach speeds in excess of 120 mph, launching more than 15 feet in the air and covering distances more than 75 feet on Belle Isle, the SST Series is unique in the sense that all trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition. Drivers do not have an advantage over others because they have a bigger budget or greater technology. Drivers are assigned SST crew members who make minor adjustments at a driver’s request. The rules are specific as to what changes are permitted on the trucks so that the technology in the trucks remains equal.

Among the cities SST will visit include Las Vegas, Toronto, San Diego, Los Angeles, Detroit, Indianapolis and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla. One additional city will be announced, which SST founder and president Robby Gordon, believes will be the headline event of the 2014 season. Specific dates will be announced in conjunction with promoters and other local partners. However, it can be stated the season will start in Las Vegas on March 7 and end at the same venue on Nov. 7.

As somewhat of a preview to the Stadium Super Trucks race Friday evening after the 2013 SEMA Show concludes, Team Toyo Off-Road brought out some of its notable off-road racers to host a demo this week called the Team Toyo Truck-Off. Slated as an event with “no money, no champagne, no trophy,” the racers hopped behind their Stadium Super Trucks and still drove like they were in a real competition, giving the SEMA crowd, some of whom had never seen off-road race trucks in action, a demonstration of just what they could do on the Ford Out Front track in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
