It’s been a dream of mine for a long time to be able to put this package together, to take off-road racing to the next level. Trucks have been running and testing all year long, the videos on are awesome and we are building a lot of buzz for the series. It’s exciting to announce that tickets for the first three events will be on sale this weekend just in time for holidays” explained Stadium SUPER Trucks Founder and President Robby Gordon.

Tickets for adults start at just $20* while kids receive $10 off admission.** Drivers from all forms of motorsport will hop in the specialty built Stadium Trucks, BIGFOOT® Monster Trucks, Quads and Side-by-Side UTV’s to take on a challenging course full of cross-over jumps with tight and technically turns making it an exciting event that you won’t want to miss.

GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH - The second event of 2013 will take place prior to the start of the IZOD Indy Car Series Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday April 21.

LA MEMORIAL COLISEUM - Entering the 90 year of operations the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has hosted many exciting events over the years, but on Saturday April 27 following the steps of the late Mickey Thompson, Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD will bring back the return of Stadium off-road racing at the location of its birth. This night surely looks to be one of most memorable events of the 2013 season.

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum’s Sr. Director of Operations Joe Furin had this to say about the upcoming Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD Stadium SUPER Trucks event.

“Having hosted two Olympiad, a World Series, two Super Bowls, a Papal Mass and some of the largest names in rock n' roll, no other stadium can match the history of the Coliseum. To play the Coliseum, you had to be the biggest and the brightest - the best of the best! Mickey Thompson knew that if he was going to bring the biggest and best of desert racing into a stadium, he had to do it in the Coliseum...and stadium off-road racing was born! The Coliseum is absolutely thrilled to be part of the Robby Gordon’s 2013 Stadium SUPER Truck Series and once again experience the death-defying truck leaps from the Peristyle to the floor of the Coliseum 180' below. The roar of tens of thousands of fans will welcome Robby and wake the ghost of Mickey Thompson, and the many others that came before!”
