Two races scheduled for MGM Resorts Village.
SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS will make its return to Las Vegas Nov. 1 and 5 at the MGM Resorts Village under the famous lights of the Las Vegas strip.
The events will mark the culmination of the Stadium Super Trucks' (SST) second season and will take place while thousands of off-road automotive experts gather for the annual SEMA show – a premier automotive specialty products trade event. A full schedule of racing will take place both nights with other racing series joining the SSTs, including a full field of high-powered Legend Cars.
The series will race on a similar circuit as last month’s OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California, which featured dirt and asphalt, metal ramps, a crossover jump and a technical rhythm section.
Tickets are on sale via the MGM box office (877-274-6958 from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. PST) and Ticketmaster, and are priced at $25 for adults, and $15 for children (12 and under) and military personnel.
The SST series has raced in front of more than 600,000 spectators so far this year as well as national television audiences on NBCSN, ESPN and ABC. The series also made its first appearance at ESPN’s X Games Austin and the event was overwhelmingly voted fans’ “favorite moment” on an ESPN.com poll.
The series features identically prepared trucks, which are made to resemble their scaled-down TRAXXAS radio-control-car counterparts. Like their TRAXXAS namesake, the trucks are designed to take flight. However, unlike RC trucks, they generate speeds of more than 150 mph. The trucks race on DOT-approved Toyo Tires and put on breathtaking shows by flying more than 15 feet in the air and hundreds of feet down course, launching off of man-made ramps and jumps.
SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS will begin its 2015 season in Adelaide, Australia, and later return back to North America for a full season featuring several IndyCar companion races and a number of stand-alone stadium races the series is known for. A complete 2015 schedule will be announced following the Las Vegas events.
