Creed Rolls To Stadium SUPER Truck Glory
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Sheldon Creed took top honors in Sunday’s Stadium SUPER Trucks event at the Sands Sport Super Show.
Just as the two days previous, Stadium Super Trucks, would take to the track for two practice sessions, before the best of two laps qualifying session. Justin Lofton continued where he left off the night before laying down the quickest lap of the weekend.
Sunday afternoon’s final would see a six-car invert with Apdaly Lopez pacing the 18-lap SST final to green. Lopez would lead lap-1 followed by Sheldon Creed and Keegan Kincaid.
Making his third start in SST, Scotty Steele would make contact with the wall coming to the start/finish line ending his return to SST early.
Sheldon Creed of Alpine, Calif., would waste no time moving the No. 74 to the front taking the lead away from Lopez with style grabbing huge air over the West Coast Sand and Gravel Sand pit.
Saturday night’s winner Justin Lofton would encounter problems on Lap-5 taking the No. 6 J6Ink truck to the pit area to repair a flat tire.
After a lap-six restart, Robby Gordon would have a hard landing in the sand causing him to roll over and acquire heavy body damage. Cosmetic damage would not hinder Gordon’s race to the front as he would continue to the midst of large cheers from the crowd.
Second-running Keegan Kincaid subbing for Championship Points leader Rob MacCachren would make contact with the No. 5 of SST newcomer B.J Baldwin on lap 14. Both trucks would receive damage from the incident. Baldwin a flat tire while Kincaid’s hood restricted his vision forward.
After receiving a flat tire early in the race, Lofton put on a driving clinic charging through the field on his way to moving into the second position on Lap-16.
Lofton’s quest for a second straight win would run out of time as Creed, would roll to his second SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win of the season; he was followed to the line by Lofton and third finishing P.J. Jones.
