Sara Price, a successful multi-championship professional motocross and UTV racer from Canyon Lake, will be the first woman to compete in the SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks, presented by TRAXXAS Series. She was scheduled to make her debut during the Honda Indy Toronto July 15 to 17 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Sara says, “I’m extremely excited to be transitioning into the SST Series. When Robby Gordon called me two years ago saying I need to get into one of his Stadium Super Trucks, I just put my head down and started getting to work. SST is where I want to be, and I’m very pumped to be competing in the same exact truck as the other competitors, it’s truly a dream come true.”
Robby Gordon, former NASCAR and IndyCar Winner and Off-Road Champion, is the Series president. When asked about Sara’s involvement in Stadium Super Trucks, he says, “Sure there have been other women whom have competed in motorsports history, but it is not too often you are able find the complete package. Sara has the talent, beauty and sense of drive to continue writing Stadium Super Trucks history well into the future, including becoming the first female SST winner and push to become a champion.”
Other than the Stadium Super 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 650-horsepower trucks.
Sara is supported by BitTorrent Inc., a media company dedicated to empowering radical voices in sports, music, film and more. Its global consumer media platform gives athletes and brands outside the mainstream exposure to over 200 million fans.
Jeremy Johnson, co-CEO of BitTorrent, says: “BitTorrent is incredibly excited to be supporting Sara. We’re dedicated to supporting the individuals in action sports who break the traditional mold and bringing their stories to the world.”
As longtime The Friday Flyer readers know, Sara has continuously broken down barriers in motorsports. She won over 17 national championships in motocross and medaled in the X-Games before making the switch to four wheels, winning several Off-Road and Time Attack racing championships.
She says she is determined not only to be the first woman to start in Stadium Super Trucks, but to contend for a spot on the podium.
