Robby Gordon's Quotes on Atlanta

It looked like you were going to score your first win as a Nextel Cup team owner the last time around at Atlanta. Will you be able to complete that benchmark this weekend?

"I think we have a better chance this weekend than we had back in the spring. We figured some things out in our intermediate program and had the run at Charlotte a couple of weeks ago to prove it. That car was easily capable of a top-five finish much like our car at Atlanta back in the spring.

"Our results should definitely improve at those types of tracks, but we need to ditch the bad luck we've had lately. Our luck has been pretty rotten lately, but the guys at the shop and at the track still give a hundred percent day-in-and-day-out."
