Robby Gordon has resurrected his Stadium Super Truck series for 2013. The racer describes the spectacle as Baja meets Bigfoot, wherein 600-horsepower beasts with 20 inches of suspension travel race side-by-side in stadiums around the country for a shot at a $60,000 nightly purse. The driver who manages to take home the championship win will walk away with $500,000. The series is patterned after the Mickey Thompson Off-Road Race Series, which gave drivers like Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Casey Mears their start in racing some 25 years ago.

Each event will feature two days of festivities, including a fan expo, tailgating and side-by-side ATV races. Each truck will have at least some resemblance to production models outside and will run DOT-approved street tires. Check out a very unique season preview as well as a quick clip of one truck in action by scrolling down. We have to say watching a single Stadium Super Truck play in the dirt is about as thrilling as watching paint dry, but the real deal should feature side-by-side competition, and we look forward to the return of stadium truck racing at the Los Angeles Coliseum on May 29, 2013.
