LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. — Multi-time Supercross and Pro Motocross champion Ryan Villopoto will make his Stadium SUPER Truck Series debut during this weekend’s SST Race & Rock World Championship.
After winning four straight AMA Supercross Championships from 2011 to 2014, Villopoto announced his retirement at the beginning of the 2015 season.
Since that time, Villopoto has looked to continue his passion for off-road, but on four wheels instead of two.
“I’m excited to get behind the wheel of a off-road truck again, I haven’t had many chances to drive, but the few I have had it’s been an absolute blast,” Villopoto said. “I’ve been following what Robby Gordon has been doing with Stadium SUPER Trucks for some time now, and to have an opportunity to drive one of those trucks with some of the best names in the sport is truly an honor.”
Villopoto’s No. 2 truck will be supported by Bristol, Tenn.-based RPM Off-Road, an after-market truck and diesel specialty store offering sales and services in house and online.
Joining Villopoto on the RPM Off-Road team will be 2017 Baja 1000 Winner Apdaly Lopez and the first female to compete in Stadium SUPER Trucks, Sara Price.
