MARTINSVILLE, Va. (Oct. 20, 2006) -- Qualifying with a lap of 19.780 seconds (95.733 mph) on the .526-mile short track, the smallest that NASCAR's premier series visits, Robby Gordon and the No. 7 Menards/Mapei Chevy will start in the 26th position for Sunday's Subway 500.

"We weren't that great in practice and I'm happy to see that we were able to pick up a little time," said Gordon, who bested his fastest time in practice by .008 seconds. "I just focused really hard on not hitting the curbs. I did get loose on my second lap so I think we could've had a better time had the car not stepped out a little. We have some work to do in practice tomorrow to get the car better in race trim. We'll have to take that and start from there on Sunday."
