Robby Gordon captured the  win in Stadium Super Trucks on Saturday night. Competing at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego for the fifth stop of the SST schedule the California native drove his No. 7 SPEED Energy to his first win in series.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. led the field to the start but was quickly passed by Nick Baumgartner who led lap 1. By lap 2 Gordon had taken the lead. P.J. Jones driving the No. 98 American Racing Wheels truck found trouble on Lap-5 flipping over.

Lap-14 saw Baumgartner would lose the handle on the No. 12 making contact with the outside k-rail with the truck coming to a rest on top.

Sheldon Creed, 15,  would work to the inside of Gordon Lap-18, and the two would race side by side for much of the lap before the No. 7 would power back ahead. Creed would make one more run at Gordon on the final lap, but could not find the opening to get past.
