Charlotte, NC (February 19, 2010) -- Robby Gordon returns to Auto Club Speedway this weekend as part of NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series 2010 West Coast debut. Gordon is one of five Sprint Cup Series regulars from California and he is looking forward to returning to his home state.

Warner Music Nashville -- Gordon will debut the No. 7 Warner Music Nashville / Whitney Duncan Camry this weekend. The Toyota entry will be a joint effort between Robby Gordon Motorsports and BAM Racing.

Robby's Remarks -- "Fontana is a really cool race for me because it allows me to return to my home track and race in front of my friends and family," said Gordon. "I'm even more excited about the race this year since I have the chance to debut a new sponsor on the No. 7 Camry. Our partnership with BAM Racing has been great, and having Warner Music Nashville and Whitney Duncan on the hood of our car this weekend is just another benefit resulting from that relationship."

Fontana Career Highlights -- Robby Gordon has been racing in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events at Auto Club Speedway since 2000. In his 15 starts at the 2.0-mile oval, Gordon has led 11 laps and recorded a top finish of 9th in the fall 2004 event. Gordon's best qualifying effort (12th) was recorded exactly one year ago.

Appearances -- Last week, BAM Racing announced an association with the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that meets the needs of severely injured service men and women. On Thursday, Gordon visited wounded Marines at the Naval Medical Center on behalf of Wounded Warrior.
