Daytona Beach, FL (February 18, 2011) - The 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season marks Robby Gordon's seventh year as owner/driver of the No. 7 Robby Gordon Motorsports team. RGM, one of the few single car teams in NASCAR's elite series, announced last week that they are partnering with Dodge Motorsports.
Robby Gordon will start the 53rd running of the Daytona 500 piloting the orange and black No. 7 SPEED Energy race car, representing one of his new energy drinks, "Fuel". Gordon started 19th in the second Daytona Duels on Thursday and finished 17th. He will start Sunday's 200--lap event from 30th position.
"With the new surfaces, the two-car pack, and the new rule change limiting the inlet air to the radiator, we used Thursday's Duels as a learning experience to see how these events were raced and ultimately won. Thursday's results gave us an opportunity to strategize and create a solid plan for Sunday's race. I am really looking forward to the season-opener," commented Robby Gordon.
