First, looks like a hand-lettering to me. All repeating letters are different (3 /S, 3 /E, 2 /R, 2 /P...).
Second, I was unable to spot a font that could match all these specific letters. Looks like it mixes different styles of font (at least 2): /S (/T, /A, /L...) on one side and /P, /R, /O and /P on the other. May be mixing some of these ones would be interesting: Highway (flare serif but overall design looks in the same vein), Wyvern, Railroad Gothic, Maxwell Sans, CA Aires, Strassenbahn, Route 66, Outer Loop, SNV, Highway (Blue Highway, Highway Gothic, Interstate, Expressway...), Signal, SAA, Monod, Nomad, Cougher, Van Condensed, Inventory, Station
