ROBBY GORDON TO DRIVE THE NO. 7 WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE TOYOTA CAMRY IN SELECT 2010 RACES
Charlotte, N.C. (February 9, 2010) -- Today BAM Racing owner Beth Ann Morgenthau announced Robby Gordon as driver of the No. 7 Warner Music Nashville Toyota Camry for the following races: the Auto Club 500 at Auto Club Speedway on February 21; the Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 7; and the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on March 21.
"We are thrilled to be associated with such a talented driver as Robby Gordon," stated Morgenthau. "After Daytona, BAM Racing and Robby Gordon Motorsports will jointly field the No. 7 at select races. While Tony and I will miss our beloved No. 49, it will be good for our sponsor, Warner Music Nashville, to have a car that is guaranteed a starting position in the first five races."
Robby Gordon added, "I am very excited to drive the No. 7 Warner Music Nashville Camry. I am committed to drive the car through Bristol, while continuing to work on several options for the rest of the year. The alliance with BAM Racing and the addition of Warner Music Nashville to our growing roster of sponsors will help us with our 2010 season."
After evaluating the joint venture between BAM Racing and Robby Gordon Motorsports which was announced earlier this year, it was decided to consolidate the effort by running one car with Robby Gordon as the driver of the joint BAM/RGM entries.
"This is the best plan for everyone," commented Gordon. "By running one car in the next few races, it will allow us to build our fleet and prepare our equipment to the highest industry standards. When we do decide to run two cars later in the year, we will be fully prepared to do so."
Beth Ann also announced an association with Wounded Warrior Family Support, an organization that helps families by providing them with vacations and retreats at no cost.
"Starting in Daytona, our car will feature a Wounded Warrior decal," commented Morgenthau. "This is an organization for veterans with two stipulations: they must have been wounded in combat, and they must have dependent children. Colonel John Folsom, founder of Wounded Warriors Family Support, will be our guest at Daytona, and we look forward to supporting this worthwhile organization this season."
Warner Music Nashville stars -- Larry the Cable Guy, Blake Shelton, Gloriana, Whitney Duncan, Jessica Harp, James Otto, Jason Jones, and others yet to be named -- will be featured on the No. 7 BAM/RGM Toyota Camry and in the BAM Racing/Warner Music Nashville VIP Fan Experience during the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season. The VIP Fan Experience allows fans unprecedented access to Warner Music Nashville recording artists and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Team.
