Robby Gordon has been winning races in a wide variety of racing cars and trucks for decades. These days, you’ll still find him racing in his Speed Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks Series. These high-flying trucks put on an exciting show wherever they compete around the world and they are truly a fan favorite on the streets of Long Beach during the grand prix weekend. We talked to Robby at the media luncheon and he fills us in on the history of these super cool trucks as well as their specifications – including “reverse aerodynamics!” The series has been a springboard for other drivers in different series and he gives us the scoop on that as well. Enjoy!

NOTE: Robby would go on to finish second in Race #1 and win Race #2 at Long Beach in 2022. This is the first of a two-part interview. Next week we chat with Robby’s son Max.
