Robby Gordon Claims Silver Medal at X Games Austin

Austin, Texas ( June 7, 2015) - Sheldon Creed won his first X Games gold medal in Off-Road Truck Racing, besting his 2014 silver medal at last year’s inaugural event. The 17-year-old driver got the lead early and held it throughout the competition. Kyle Leduc and Robby Gordon battled for second with Gordon passing Leduc on lap eight and Leduc receiving a black penalty flag.

Leduc ignored the call, resulting in a disqualification. Approaching lap 12, Keegan Kincaid, in seventh position, lost control on a landing, rolling his truck and leading to a red flag to halt the race. The race was called and the podium held with Creed taking gold, followed by Gordon with silver and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. with the bronze.
