INDIANAPOLIS -- Robby Gordon pre-Indianapolis 500/NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 general quotes. Gordon starts his 10th Indy 500 in his Meijer/Coca-Cola Dallara-Chevrolet and the Coke 600 in the Cingular Wireless Chevy for Richard Childress Racing.

General comments: "I think we're very well prepared going into both races. Obviously, we didn't qualify as well as we'd like (18th at Indy), but I think we have a good handling car for the race. There are always a lot of factors going into the race, like fuel mileage, and all the other variables that make the Indy 500 the Indy 500."

On forecast for scattered showers on Sunday: "I don't control the weather. We know what our plan is and we'll stick with it. I have Jaques Lazier here. He's going to spot for me and is available to drive if that's the situation that we have to deal with."

On the start: "Brian (Barnhart) sounded pretty convincing (in drivers' meeting) that he wants a safe start and if that means falling in line through turn one and then start passing coming off turn two, that's how I'll handle it. Hopefully we can carry a lot of momentum and start making places after that."
