Russell Boyle, 15, of Uxbridge, Ontario, will compete in the two SPEED EnergyStadium Super Trucks (SST) Presented by TRAXXAS races leading up to the Honda Indy Toronto this weekend, June 12-14. Boyle will drive the #93 KMC Wheels/Toronto Motorsports – Jingles Hair Salon entry for RTB Motorsports.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to race in Stadium Super Trucks this weekend,” Boyle said. “Getting to this point has taken a lot of work, but I hope that this is a stepping stone on the way to realizing my dream of being a professional racecar driver.”
Boyle intends to use this weekend as a learning experience, in hope of racing Stadium Super Trucks full time in 2016. This opportunity finds Boyle working with, and following in the footsteps of, his mentor, the ‘Thrill from West Hill’, Paul Tracy. Boyle will also make history as the youngest driver to ever compete in a Stadium Super Trucks event as he will look to turn heads and begin to make a name for him.
Boyle’s career began in 2009 with Goodwood Kartways-Intrepid. He has since amassed dozens of wins, podium finishes and top-tens. So far this year, Boyle has collected four wins, five podiums, six top-five finishes and seven top-tens. With his goal is to end the 2015 karting season as Toronto Champion and Canadian National Champion, Boyle will then begin moving out of the karting ranks and begin his quest for a career in professional motorsports.

About Stadium Super Trucks:
Now in its third season of competition, the SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks Presented by TRAXXAS is a full series of races featuring identically prepared trucks resembling their smaller radio control TRAXXAS counterparts. The trucks race at large IndyCar street circuit events, massive Australian V8 SuperCar races, in stadiums, on dirt and on paved surfaces. The versatile trucks provide an off-the-ground dimension to racing normally reserved for the off-road worlds of Baja and Dakar, which few American fans have an opportunity to witness in person. Gordon’s introduction of the SST series has re-introduced fascinating elements of off-road racing to crowds regularly in excess of 100,000 fans at venues including the Long Beach Grand Prix, the Belle Isle Detroit Grand Prix, X Games Austin, the Clipsal 500 V8 SuperCar race in Adelaide, Australia and other high-profile events.
