Apdaly Lopez has won an even more dramatic than usual Stadium Super Trucks round at the Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium.

A trio of Cautions, one the standard Competition Caution and another two for rollovers, set up a frantic dash to the chequered flag in the Final.

Lopez pressured leader Robby Gordon upon restart but in doing so invited an attack from Sheldon Creed.

However, with Creed filling up the outside line he was spectacularly escorted into a wall, allowing Jeff Hoffman to take over second position.

Lopez nevertheless continued the chase and was soon lunging to the inside of both Gordon and Hoffman, making contact with the former that saw Hoffman take over top spot.

No sooner had he done so, Hoffman ran wide and let Lopez through to take victory.

Hoffman came home second ahead of Gavin Harlien and Gordon, while Matt Brabham finished seventh.

Brabham had been on the back foot ever since he was turned around during his heat race and started deep in the 12-truck field.

Stadium Super Trucks’ next round is at the Adelaide 500 on March 1-4. comment policy
