Creed Dominates For First Super Truck Victory
TORONTO – Sheldon Creed dominated the final six laps of the second SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks event held this weekend at Exhibition Place on Sunday to claims his first victory.
As gorgeous weather conditions surrounded the Toronto area for the second day in a row, the encore presentation of SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks took to the temporary constructed street course of the Honda Indy Toronto for round number eight of competition.
The starting line-up for the eight-lap SST Final would be determined by a complete invert of the fastest times from Saturday’s Round No. 7. After the inversion Toronto, native, Paul Tracy would find himself starting from the pole position to the inside of Scottsdale, Ariz., driver, P.J. Jones.
As the green flag flew Tracy, driving the No. 3 SportsNet truck would quickly jump out to the early lead but would relinquish it soon after to Jones in the American Racing Wheels truck. Third starting Creed would also move past Tracy and settle behind Jones setting up a fierce battle between the two.
Creed would maneuver past Jones on Lap-3 as the two navigated through the jump section of the 1.75-mile course. Falling in line behind Creed, Jones would constantly apply pressure bumping and banging into the back of the No. 74 Traxxas truck.
