Robby Gordon to Start 36th at the 2.66-mile Superspeedway

TALLADEGA, Ala. (Oct. 7, 2006) -- Qualifying with a lap of 51.108 seconds (187.368 mph) at the largest track that NASCAR's premier series visits, Robby Gordon and the No. 7 Harrah's Chevy will start in the 36th position for Sunday's NASCAR Nextel Cup Series' UAW-Ford 500.

"Not too worried about our qualifying spot," said Gordon. "We spent both practice sessions yesterday hanging in the draft and we came out 3rd and 1st. The car easily drove through the pack and even with NASCAR giving us a smaller restrictor plate, I'm sure we can still charge up through the field and be in position at the end. We'll start from there on Sunday and see what happens."
