Charlotte, NC (October 8, 2009) -- Robby Gordon and the No. 7 Jim Beam team return to Gordon's home state of California to race in the Pepsi 500 at Auto Club Speedway this weekend. The race will mark the end of a busy week for Gordon who will make several appearances throughout the weekend. Gordon made a stop earlier this week in Greene County, Missouri to support the funding of DWI Courts on behalf of this weekend's sponsor, Jim Beam.

Robby's Remarks -- "I always love coming back to California to race," said Gordon. "There is no better feeling than being in front of my home crowd and being able to put on a good show. With this track being so important to our team, we will be debuting a new race car this weekend. We have put a lot of hard work into this car and the preparation for this weekend, and we can't wait to hit the track tomorrow."

California Statistics --Gordon looks to find success at his home track this weekend. In his fourteen starts at Auto Club Speedway, the California native has recorded one top-ten at the 2-mile D-shaped oval. Gordon's best finish of 9th came in just his fifth start at the track in the fall of 2004. Throughout his career, Gordon has led 11 laps at the southern California speedway.

Appearance Schedule -- Robby Gordon will appear at Wahoo's Fish Taco on Saturday night, October 10. He will be signing autographs at the Temecula, Calif. restaurant from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. For more information, please visit robbygordon.com.
