Charlotte, NC (June 17, 2008) -- Known as one of the top road course racers in the world and on the NASCAR circuit today, Robby Gordon and his No. 7 team are headed to Infineon Raceway as a serious threat to win Sunday's Toyota/Save Mart 350. In last year's race, Gordon led the most number of laps -- 48 of 110 laps, but fuel mileage cost the No. 7 a chance at the checkered flag. In his ten starts at the 1.99-mile road course, Gordon owns one victory, two top-five and three top-ten finishes as well as five top-ten starts.

Gordon and the No. 7 Dodge have been selected to carry an in-car camera for Sunday's TNT broadcast, showing fans his moves as he battles the ten-turn track. Front tire changer, Bobby Burrell, will also be displaying the crew cam, giving fans a chance to see live pit action. For the second year in a row, Gordon will be a featured driver on DirecTV's Hot Pass. The RGM crew will be aired on SD channel 790 and HD channel 795, and the coverage includes: real time stats, live audio, various camera views and dedicated announcers to make certain that not a second of the heart-pounding action is missed.

Infineon -- "We are excited to be going to Infineon this weekend. I love the road course races, and the variety that it offers the drivers and the fans. We had a successful test at Road Atlanta in our primary road course car last month. If that is any indication of how well we will do this weekend, then I think we are set for a great weekend of racing action," stated Gordon.

"As a team, we must never forget that we are racing at the most competitive level of motorsports. We need to have the mentality that we cannot only win at road courses, but everywhere we go. We need to come out of Infineon with a good finish and momentum for the second half of the season."

Appearance Schedule -- Gordon will be signing autographs on Sunday at his souvenir trailer at 10 a.m.
