Robby Gordon – “Last year we settled the SST World Championship over in Lake Elsinore with an incredible Stadium event where it came down to a single point to decide Paul Morris as the SST CHAMPION over Matt Brabham, but off-road racing is a lot more than just SST trucks and UTV’s. Back in the beginning of my career we use to race at Riverside Raceway with the Mickey Thompson Off Road Grand Prix, and I wanted to bring back something similar with 2 classes of Motocross, 2 classes of UTV’s, FMX and SST Trucks for a weekend long Off Road World Championship. The Glen Helen Raceway campus provides the perfect location for us to host large crowds for a weekend long event with EPIC racing, camping, music, and venders all close to the Los Angeles area.”
Set against a mountain side North of San Bernardino, California on 256 acres of shared county property the Glen Helen Raceway was built in 1985 to host several sand drag, off-road, and motocross events at various tracks constructed over the years. However, it was the annual stop for the Motocross National event that put Glen Helen on the map with its National MX track. Famous for its famous steep hills, jumps, and banking it offers the perfect combination of extreme obstacles for the various disciplines the Robby Gordon Off-Road World Championships will feature, as all classes will look to conquer the ever challenging outdoor motocross track.
