Robby Gordon’s new Stadium Super Trucks series just got a voicemail from the 1990s: They called and want their IndyCar superstars back.
Three of the biggest names during one of open-wheel racing’s most memorable decades – Gordon, Paul Tracy and Jimmy Vasser – will take to the streets of Toronto this weekend in a completely different form of machinery: the Stadium Super Trucks.
A late add to what was already a jam-packed schedule, SST will run a doubleheader for Rounds 7 and 8 of its season. Round 7 will occur Saturday evening after the IZOD IndyCar Series concludes its first race of the weekend, will Round 8 will occur just before IndyCar’s second race.
These three bring huge star power and impressive resumes to SST from their time in Toronto. Tracy, the local son from Scarborough, Ontario, who last raced an IndyCar in Toronto in 2011, has two prior wins (2003 and 1993) at Exhibition Place.
Vasser, the 1996 IndyCar champion, has a best result of second (2004) in Toronto. The KV Racing Technology co-owner (pictured, right) will be pulling double duty as he’ll also perform his usual role on Tony Kanaan’s radio.
Gordon last raced in Toronto in 1999, with a best result of fifth place in 1995 driving for Derrick Walker. Walker is now IndyCar’s new president of competition and operations.
