Charlotte, NC (March 4, 2010) -- The No. 7 Warner Music Nashville / Blake Shelton Camry rolls in to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend with Robby Gordon behind the wheel. After a rough weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Gordon is ready to turn around his luck and jumpstart the 2010 season. As a part of their alliance for the 2010 season, the Warner Music Nashville / Blake Shelton entry will be a joint effort between Robby Gordon Motorsports and BAM Racing.

Robby's Thoughts -- "Atlanta was one of the earliest NASCAR tracks that I was able to find success on," said Gordon. "My only pole in the Sprint Cup Series came at Atlanta, and we've been very competitive there in the past. It's an extremely fast track. One of the biggest challenges about Atlanta is having the setup right on the car as soon as the green flag falls, which we have worked really hard on this week. I hope that all the hard work in the shop pays off this weekend."

Career Highlights from Atlanta Motor Speedway -- Since 1997, Robby Gordon has made 18 starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. During his debut, Gordon secured the pole position and went on to lead 42 laps throughout the race. Gordon has been extremely competitive during his career at Atlanta Motor Speedway and has successfully completed 99% of all possible laps. In his last appearance at the intermediate track, Gordon raced his way to a 16th-place finish after competing in the World Off-Road Championship series in Crandon, Wis., earlier in the day.
