Charlotte, NC (April 8, 2010) -- The No. 7 Warner Music Nashville / Blake Shelton Camry races into Phoenix International Raceway this weekend for the Subway Fresh Fit 600. After a weekend off, the Warner Music Nashville / Blake Shelton team is ready to put it into overdrive around the 1-mile oval.

Robby's Thoughts -- "After having a week off last weekend, the Warner Music Nashville / Blake Shelton team is ready to get on track at Phoenix [International Raceway]," said Gordon. "We are bringing the same car that we raced at Martinsville a couple weeks ago. I appreciate all the hard work that the guys at the shop put into this car getting it turned around. Even though we have to qualify our way into the show on Friday night, I know that our team is prepared and up to the challenge."

Gordon's Past Performances at Phoenix -- Since making his debut at Phoenix International Raceway in 1996, Gordon has recorded 15 starts at the 1-mile oval. In just his second start, Gordon recorded his best finish (7th) before winning his best qualifying position (9th) the following year. Since his debut, Gordon has completed more than 4,100 laps around the Arizona short-track.
