Robby Gordon is one of the most talented drivers actively racing today. He’s made a mark in NASCAR, IndyCar, Baja, and lately, his own Stadium Super Trucks series. Whatever he’s driving, Gordon is known for his aggressive style and showmanship. Which an Australian judge, apparently, had no sense of humor about at all.
8-year-old Max Gordon plays with trucks just like we did as kids. Except his are life-sized racing vehicles and he can actually drive them like a boss. Being raised by one of the greatest racers of all time has its advantages.
Thousands of rich rednecks, uh, I mean, “off-road enthusiasts” are descending on Mexico’s Baja peninsula this week for the 49th annual Baja 1000– a race of epic proportions in a beautiful setting featuring readily available tacos. Here’s how to check it out, and who to pay attention to if you’re a new spectator.
NASCAR and Baja racing legend Robby Gordon spoke to the press today about the tragic and sudden deaths of his father Robert “Baja Bob” Gordon and stepmother Sharon. The story surrounding the incident is still incomplete, but Gordon is maintaining “the truth will come out.”

Dakar Rally’s television coverage alluded to a wreck that forced American racing legend Robby Gordon to withdraw from the race, but offered few details.

The high-flying two-wheeling Stadium Super Trucks are racing all weekend in Gold Coast, Australia and there have already been enough crashes for an awesome highlight reel.
What’s the difference between a crash and a stunt? ‘Round here we say; “landing on your wheels, bro!” Here’s how Robby Gordon brought the noise to the Estate Of Lord March at the 2015 Goodwood Festival Of Speed.
A video uploaded Sunday shows former NASCAR driver Robby Gordon clipping an observer with his vehicle at Saturday’s Baja 500 off-road race in Mexico. Gordon was attempting to get around fellow racer Apdaly Lopez when he hit the man. As a warning, the video should be considered graphic.
Everybody’s favorite wrecking ball racer Robby Gordon is on a roll. Wielding his superfast scratch-built HST Gordini he stomped the NORRA Mexican 1000 vintage off-road race last month, and just smoked everybody at the Dos Mares 500 on his way home.
The NORRA Mexican 1000's been called "a conga line down the Baja peninsula." It's also one of the only events you see vintage, historic, and other wacky off-road vehicles really racing. Now Robby Gordon's bringing in a Pro Unlimited class, and I fear organizers made a deal with the devil in exchange for TV time.
Stadium Super Trucks is, by far and away, the perfect race series for someone who cares for nothing about racing. Do you really care which driver hates which? No. Do you really care whose dad was whose? No. Do you even care who wins? Not really. But it's loud, it's fast, it's slidey, and, oh yeah, SWEET JUMPS.
