This is the Grand National Sport Trucks main event from the 1988 Mickey Thompson Off Road GP at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego, CA.   I remember watching these Mickey Thompson races when I was a kid and Ivan “Ironman” Stewart helped start my addiction to off road racing and Toyota trucks.

This year Robby Gordon is resurrecting what Mickey Thompson started by bringing off road racing back to the stadiums.  The first Stadium Super Trucks event was held in Phoenix Arizona, followed by an exhibition race at the Long Beach Grand Prix and last weekends event at the LA Coliseum.  So far fans love the racing and we hope to see it grow.  Check out the SST schedule here and see if there is an event near you. SST is also aired on NBC Sports.  Here is the Youtube video of the Phoenix SST event.
