Various posts from around the internet suggest that Robby Gordon’s newest racing venture, Stadium Super Trucks, is on pace for a strong debut season in 2013.

Tickets for the series’ first three events—held at University of Phoenix Stadium, the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum—are now on sale. Phoenix and Los Angeles tickets can be purchased online through Ticketmaster, while Long Beach tickets can be purchased at the GPLB website, or in person at each respective event’s box office. The competitions will be held on April 6, April 21, and April 27, respectively, and feature the marquee Stadium Super Trucks, ATVs, UTVs, and the famed Bigfoot monster truck.

Meanwhile, Gordon and his team have been developing the Stadium Super Truck model, testing it over the past few weeks on a metal ramp akin to the one used in this year’s Global Rallycross Championship. The metal jump is guaranteed to appear at the Long Beach round, although it’s likely that most of the stadium-based events will feature dirt jumps.

Though it’s early to speculate on a driver lineup, interactions with the brand within the past few weeks may provide insights on who will compete. Gordon seems like a no-brainer to race in his own series, while this year’s Baja 1000 winner, B.J. Baldwin, and freestyle motocross star Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg have posted photos of the SST in the past few weeks. Arie Luyendyk Jr., son of two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Arie Luyendyk and former “The Bachelor” contestant, has also changed his Twitter cover photo to one of him testing an SST.
