The Arctic Cat Stadium Side-by-Side (SXS) Racing Series was launched last year with overwhelming success, as the undercard, or lead-in race, to the main event at Robby Gordon’s wildly popular Stadium Super Truck (SST) Series events. The Arctic Cat Stadium SXS Series features 10 Arctic Cat Wildcat side-by-sides driven by Action Sport Athletes, fans, and dealers who will use the same track as the Stadium Super Trucks at various races.
About SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS
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. His plan to re-launch the former stadium series has led to exciting racing on both asphalt and dirt, while producing one of the most extreme forms of action sports today.
Other than the trucks launching 20 feet in the air covering distances more than 150 feet, 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. Race winners are decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets. Drivers and their personal mechanics are assigned specific SST mechanics who together tune and make minor adjustments to the 600-horsepower trucks.
