Stadium Super Trucks officials announced earlier this week that Winter X Games Gold Medalist Nick Baumgartner will be competing in the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas event at the X Games Austin.
“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.”
Baumgartner made a SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road start last year, finishing third behind veterans Robby Gordon and Rob MacCachren.
“I am stoked to represent the Winter X Games athletes in Austin,” Baumgartner continued.
Baumgartner will drive the No. 12 Loctite® SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas SST in the event on June 8th.
“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, General Industrial Marketing Director for Henkel Corporation, North America. “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.”
As part of continuing to grow the series, Robby Gordon brings his stadium super trucks to this year’s X Games event, therefore debuting off road truck racing as an event as part of the games.
