Event: Las Vegas
Las Vegas, NV (March 4, 2011) – After a tough day of racing at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend, Robby Gordon and the No. 7 SPEED Energy team have focused their attention towards Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Gordon returns to Las Vegas Motor Speedway looking to improve upon the 32nd place finish that was recorded just one year ago at the 1.5-mile oval.
The No. 7 SPEED Energy Dodge Charger R/T will be sporting a new color and partner this weekend. The No. 7 SPEED Energy Dodge Charger R/T will be yellow to represent the Octane flavor of SPEED Energy and will be sporting two new partners, Terrible Herbst and Wirtz Beverage Nevada. SPEED Energy drinks can be purchased in the Terrible Herbst convenience stores in Nevada. For a location near you, please visit www.speedenergy.com/page/nevada-clark-county.
“Losing a car at Phoenix hurt us a little as the race team was scheduled to make changes to the Phoenix car to be our backup at Las Vegas. We’re going to have to be a little conservative here on Friday and Saturday. Obviously once Saturday is over, it is game on,” says Gordon. “I’m looking forward to driving the yellow SPEED Energy Octane Dodge Charger with Terrible Herbst and Wirtz Beverage on it. It’s going to be a lot of fun promoting the SPEED Energy brand in Las Vegas this weekend.”
Appearance Schedule – Robby Gordon will break from his busy schedule at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to meet his fans. On Saturday night, March 5, Gordon will sign autographs at the Carnival Court at Harrah’s from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The No. 7 SPEED Energy show car will be onsite for the appearance as well. Gordon will be at the Robby Gordon Motorsports / SPEED Energy merchandise trailer on Sunday morning from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
In addition to the above, SPEED Energy will be at the following Terrible Herbst locations in the Las Vegas area with the No. 7 SPEED Energy show car and samples of our energy drink. Be sure to stop by and give it a try!
