Robby Gordon Qualifies 9th in Indy

INDIANAPOLIS, IN. (August 5, 2006) -- Qualifying with a lap of 49.484 seconds (181.877 mph) at the famed 2.5-mile oval, Gordon and the No. 7 Menards/Johns Manville Chevy will start in the 9th position for Sunday's Allstate 400 at the Brickyard.

"Being able to drive a car like that around here is nice," said Gordon. "When I drove it in deep into turn one and picked up the throttle early, I knew it was going to be a good lap. I was hoping to pick up a little more time than we did, but we can still be proud of that effort. Looking forward to Sunday and hopefully putting the No. 7 Menards/Johns Manville Chevy in Victory Lane."
