Baumgartner Joins X Games Formula Off-Road Roster

1 Mins read

Winter X Games star Nick Baumgartner will be joining the line-up for the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas SST round taking part at the X Games in Austin.

Baumgartner will become a dual sport X Games athlete when he sets his sight on a X Games Austin Gold medal in #12 SST. “I have worked so hard for these opportunities and having my dream of racing the Summer X Games come true is so awesome,” Baumgartner said.

“I am so thankful that Henkel and the Loctite® products team believes in me and what I am doing. Without their support I would not be living my dreams and competing to be the best on the snow and in the truck.”

“Nick’s enthusiasm and commitment to success is very inspiring to so many people, making him a great ambassador for Henkel and our Loctite brand of adhesives and sealants,” said Mike Shannahan, Marketing Director for Henkel.

“We are proud to support Nick in his latest challenge of competing in the Stadium Super Truck race in this year’s Summer X Games. With the aggressive style demonstrated by Nick in both Snowboard X and off road truck racing, combined with the high performance and reliability of the Loctite products used on his race truck, we are confident Nick will be a dominant force in the upcoming Summer X event.”

Baumgartner has already experienced SST and on his last time out finished third just ahead of veterans Robby Gordon and Rob MacCachren at the finish line. Gordon and Baumgartner would jump the final ramp side by side for an enthralling finish.
