(March 18, 2021) In an effort to lay the foundation for tomorrow’s professional short course drivers to showcase their skills to fans and sponsors from around the globe, the Great American Shortcourse series (GAS) is excited to announce a partnership with Robby Gordon and his Stadium Super Truck (SST) series and Ultra4’s King of the Hammers (KOH).
Dave Cole (GAS co-founder) and Robby Gordon have agreed to combine forces to hold a single event in Southern California for both series’ year end finales on the weekend of November 13-14, 2021 where competitors will share the same facility, track staff, and additional operational and promotional resources. “Robby and I believe that by working together as a team we can create better opportunities for our racers, fans and sponsors and we look forward to a future of continued collaboration as the GAS series matures”, said Cole.
The second phase of this partnership will put GAS class champions from ModKart, Production UTV, Production Turbo UTV, Pro Buggy, Pro Lite and Pro 2 behind the wheel of a Stadium Super Truck competing head-to-head against a slew of heavyweights from several off-road disciplines at a new event called the Off Road Race of Champions (ORROC) held in early February during the 2022 King of The Hammers in Johnson Valley, CA.
With almost two decades of experience in short course race promotion, Lee Perfect, GAS co-founder and series Director stated, “I believe maintaining a connection with the grass roots racer while still providing opportunities for professional growth is crucial and I am glad Robby and Dave share that vision.”
