Why Drive on the Road When You Can Drive Off It?
Robby Gordon Off Road Tickets 2013
For some of American’s most intense thrill seekers, driving at over 120 mph on a mile long track just isn’t enough. Former NASCAR driver Robby Gordon is one of those people, and that is why he has founded Stadium Super Trucks, a series of events in which drivers race around perilous dirt paths in the confines of various stadiums across the United States. The event is modeled after the now defunct Mickey Thompson Off-Road Race Series – a series of coliseum races that NASCAR Hall of Famer Mickey Thompson organized, which ran from 1983-1994. Robby Gordon himself was the 1989 series champion and this new event is an humage both to Mickey Thompson and the idea that stadium racing is an excellent way for promising young drivers to begin their careers.
Races begin April 6th in Glendale, AZ at the University of Phoenix Stadium. From there, races move to Los Angeles and San Diego, before continuing on a nearly weekly basis at various U.S. cities through-out the summer. There is a $60,000 purse for each race winner, with an additional $500,000 prize to the series champion. Stay tuned for tickets, updates, and news on what’s sure to be America’s next favorite past time.
