Formula Off-Road Set For Indianapolis 500 Bow

Formula Off-Road is gearing up for a return to action following the excitement of the two opening race weekends.

This Fridays will see the Menards at the Brickyard Formula Off-Road by TRAXXAS race take place as part of the Indianapolis 500 race weekend at the worlds most famous speedway.

The Stadium Super Trucks will do battle on the front stretch of the hallowed oval along with part of the infield road course.

“The Stadium Super Trucks race often with the Verizon IndyCar Series and produce an incredibly exciting style of racing everywhere they run and we look forward to seeing them put on a show at IMS.” said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president.

Series founder Robby Gordon knows the Brickyard well having participated in 10 Indy 500 races and 12 Brickyard 400 races in NASCAR.

“My first trip to Indy as a competitor was in 1993 driving for A.J. Foyt,” said Gordon

“I grew up watching Rick Mears, A.J. and others race at the Speedway and dreamed of driving there, but I never imagined we would race off-road trucks at Indy. I have a lot of great memories from Indianapolis and this will be another one added to the list.”
