Looking forward to the open wheel race also......

The crowd loved it. A large group of kids near us were going crazy! I noticed an old crew member from the Walker Racing days as part of the crew. I don't know his name,but he has been in Indycar for over 20 years. Racing must be in his blood too.

Sheldon Creed Wins Stadium SUPER Trucks

Round 6 at the Grand Prix of Long Beach

LONG BEACH, Calif. (April 16, 2016) – Sheldon Creed of Alpine, Calif. managed to avoid the carnage in the first half of the race, and work past early leader Matt Brabham on Lap-5 to his earn his fourth SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS victory of the 2016 World Championship.

Surfers Paradise, QLD, Australia driver Matt Brabham driving the United Fiber and Data No. 83 would start on the pole position and bolt out to a early lead putting distance on the 11 other TRAXXAS trucks by the second lap.

However, Creed was also on mission working his way through the field from his eleventh starting position all the way into the second spot behind Brabham by Lap-2.

While fellow Californian Tyler McQuarrie of Walnut Creek, Calif., driving his SafeCraft Saftey Equipment truck put on a show for the capacity crowd that lined the 11-turn 1.968 mi temporary street circuit as he would barrel roll his No. 6 off the front stretch ramp running in the third position.

In Stadium SUPER Trucks fashion, McQuarrie would proceed to land on his wheels, work his way to the pits to change a flat tire, and still mange to keep his truck in contention for the win.

The caution would fly over the track on Lap-3, McQuarrie would use that caution to his advantage as he rejoined the field and began his quest back to the front of the field.

As leader Brabham and Creed battled for the lead, McQuarrie would avoid multiple spun trucks as he worked his way back into the top-5 by Lap-6. Brabham would make a mistake bicycling his No. 83 around a corner giving Creed the opportunity to pass him. A spinning Paul Morris with two laps to go would put McQuarrie back into the third position

The battle for second was fierce, however no one was going to catch the 18-year old Alpine, Calif., native as he drifted corners smoking his Toyo Open Country A/T II tires the last few laps much to the delight of the roaring crowd en route to his 17 win of his SST career.

Brabham would hold off McQuarrie to finish in the second position. McQuarrie would claim his third consecutive third place finish in all three North American events in 2016.

Paul Morris of Norwell, QLD, Australia driving the United Fiber & Data/ LIVE truck No. 67 would finish his second consecutive race in the fourth position driving a smart race and keeping his truck clean the entire 12-laps.

Dustin Scott of Inver Grove Heights, Minn. would show strong signs of competing for a podium early in the event keeping up with the quick pace of Creed, Brabham, and McQuarrie, but would find trouble in the final corner of Lap-2 spinning his SPEED Energy/ Cobra Transportation backed entry ultimately loosing multiple positions and having to work his way back through field. Scott would go on to finish the event in the fifth position.

Making his return to Stadium SUPER Truck competition after a year hiatus Erik Davis of Burbank, Calif. driving the Always Evolving/ AERNow No. 75 would survive a near roll over to finish in the sixth spot ahead of Pleasant Hill, Calif. driver Pat O’Keefe in his SafeCraft Safety Equipment No. 14.

Davey Hamilton of Nampa, Idaho in his return to SST racing would struggle getting caught up in multiple altercations in the 12-lap event, but would survive the carnage to finish the race eighth.

United Fiber and Data/ LIVE driver Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Penn., would go on to finish the twelve-lap event in the ninth position ahead of SST newcomer Khaled Al Mudhaf of Kuwait City, Kuwait driving the G-Force Auto Worx/ Kuwait Combat Athletics No. 888 truck.

Robby Gordon of Orange, Calif., would experience a broken lower-left control arm after making contact with Creed on Lap-4 and collecting five competitors behind him. Gordon would retire his Arctic Cat Wildcat/ Toyo Tires/ TRAXXAS No. 7 early and would be credited with the eleventh position.

Crandon, Wisc., driver Keegan Kincaid would get the worst damage of the early Gordon spin severing a water line, and leaking out all of the water in the cooling system. Kincaid would get towed off the track and would be scored in the twelfth position.

The second and final round of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS at the 2016 Grand Prix of Long Beach will take place Sunday at 4:00 PM PT just after the completion of the IndyCar Series event.

Another AWESOME RACE !!!!!
Sheldon and Robby 1-2

The after indy car race crowd was HUGE For SST !!

I think more people stayed to watch SST than the Busch race at Bristol.

Bristol crowd %50. Lots of empty seats for a cup race. Still 70 to 80,000. But never would have expected that big a crowd after Indycars at Long Beach. Woo Hoo for Robby and SST.

Good show after Sunday's race. https://instagram.com/p/BEUiuuCPoPB/

Sheldon Creed Sweeps Stadium SUPER Trucks Weekend at the Grand Prix of Long Beach

LONG BEACH, Calif. (April 17, 2016) –Sheldon Creed captured the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS race No. 2 at the Grand Prix of Long Beach Sunday in an amazing duel with Robby Gordon that had the thousands of fans that lined the 11 turn 1.968-mile street circuit on their feet the entire race in pure amazement how thrilling these SST races truly are.

Immediately from the start of the race this became a race for the ages, as Orange, Calif. driver Robby Gordon would jump out to an early lead on Lap-2 from his sixth starting position, as Alpine, Calif. driver Sheldon Creed would navigate through the traffic jam with perfection to place his TRAXXAS truck right on the rear bumper of Gordon from twelfth. The only two SST Champions in it’s four year history where prepared to put on a show for the capacity crowd that stuck around after the IndyCar event to witness the high-flying, tire squealing chaos we call Stadium SUPER Trucks.

For ten consecutive laps the two drivers absolutely stunned the crowd with the most impressive display of clean SST racing you could ask for. Passing each other back and forth with side-by-side drag racing into corners, bumping each other’s rear bumper, as they would slide around the corners smoking their ultra though Toyo Open Country AT II tires.

The two drivers were checked out from the field having an absolute blast when USAC officials waved the red flag at the start of the eleventh lap for a big accident for Pleasant Hill, Calif., driver Pat O’Keefe who violently rolled his truck over the front stretch TRAXXAS ramp into the catch fence.

As safety crews checked on O’ Keefe, the race was deemed completed with Creed the victor over Gordon.

When it comes to a driver that has been at the front of the field in all Stadium SUPER Truck events in 2016, Surfers Paradise, QLD, Australia driver Matt Brabham is the guy. Brabham has positioned his bright blue United Fiber & Data No. 83 in position to win at all six previous rounds. Sunday was no different advancing to the front of the field from his eleventh starting position. Brabham would put pressure on the lead two of Creed and Gordon on Lap-3 briefly, but the pace of Gordon and Creed was too quick as the two worked out to a 4-truck lead over Brabham. Brabham would remain in third until Tyler McQuarrie would content for that position from him and make the a pass on Lap-6. However, Brabham would fight back making contact with McQuarrie sending both trucks spinning. Brabham would be able to work his way back into the third position where he would finish the exciting event.

Burbank, Calif. driver Erik Davis in just his fifth start in Stadium SUPER Trucks would put himself in the right positions at the right time on Sunday hitting his marks and driving a super clean race. Including avoiding a late race tangle with fellow Californian Tyler McQuarrie and Dustin Scott. Davis would drive his Always Evolving/AERNow/ Replay XD truck to a very respectable fourth place finish.

Mr. Excitement from Saturday’s Round No. 6 Tyler McQuarrie would once again have his Safecraft Saftey Equipment truck ultra fast. McQuarrie would quickly move from tenth starting position into a battle with the lead pack in four short laps. McQuarrie and Brabham would once again find themselves racing hard with each other on the racetrack. McQuarrie would work past Brabham on Lap-6, but Brabham would continue to apply pressure to McQuarrie the two drivers would make contact sending McQuarrie spinning. McQuarrie didn’t stop there as he worked on moving back through the pack but once again would encounter trouble with the Davis and Scott truck. McQuarrie would claim the fifth position.

In making just his fourth ever start on asphalt Dustin Scott of Inver Grove Heights, Minn., would recover the SPEED Energy/ Cobra Transportation Services No. 20 from a early race spin to battle his way back into the third position on Lap-8 until contact with Davis and McQuarrie would make him spin loosing multiple positions. Scott would be credited with the sixth position.

United Fiber and Data/ LIVE driver Bill Hynes of Nazareth, Penn. would be scored in the seventh position ahead of SST newcomer Khaled Al Mudhaf of Kuwait City, Kuwait in eighth.

O’Keefe in the SafeCraft Safety Equipment truck would go on to be credited with ninth in the finishing order after his jaw-dropping aerial acrobatics on the front stretch.

Norwell, QLD, Australia driver Paul Morris would run in the top-5 majority of the day before blowing a power steering line on Lap-6 causing him to pull into the pit lane under the competition caution. As the SST support crew went to work on the United Fiber & Data/LIVE No. 67, but Morris would loose 3 laps to the lead pack. Once rejoining the field Morris would go on to finish the race and be credited with a tenth place finish.

Davey Hamilton of Nampa, Idaho would encounter fuel pick up problems on Lap-6 and would pull the No. 30 Royal Purple Synthetic Oil entry onto pit road for service under the competition caution, but would not rejoin the field.

TRAXXAS driver Keegan Kincaid of Crandon, Wisc., would jump out to an early lead before a electrical issue would end his race early on Lap-2 scoring him in the twelfth spot.

The overall standings over the two races would see Sheldon Creed capture the overall victory with his win on Saturday and Sunday. Matt Brabham would claim second, and Tyler McQuarrie in the third spot.

The next event in the season-long SST World Championship will see the thrills and spills of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS head to the northern United States for the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix June 3-5 for rounds eight and nine.

If only the Northeast could get some wind about the series. But you go where the flow goes...the flow...you know the flow, and sadly upstate New York is not some off road racing hot bed.........The streets of New York City....
