CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks series has been selected by ESPN to participate the upcoming X Games Austin event, taking place June 8 at Circuit of The Americas.

Influenced by the former Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Racing Series, where drivers such as Gordon, Casey Mears and six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson got their start, Gordon created SST in response to the public’s overwhelming interest in trucks and off-road racing.

“We’re thrilled to have Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Truck Series join the complement of sports at X Games Austin,” said Tim Reed, senior director of content strategy. “We look forward to working with the Stadium Super Truck team, and showcasing to ESPN X Games audiences around the world a very entertaining form of truck racing.”

Other than the trucks launching more than 20 feet in the air covering distances more than 150 feet under race conditions, what sets the SST program apart from other series is the fact that all the SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition.

“It is a great honor to have been chosen by ESPN to bring Stadium Super Trucks to the X Games,” Gordon said. “The X Games are the premier action-sport property in the world, and this is a testament to the fact that SST is the most extreme four-wheel motorsport on earth. Circuit of the Americas in Texas will be a great venue to showcase SST to the X Games audiences.”

The X Games will be one of 15 rounds currently scheduled for the 2014 SST season.
