Charlotte, NC (April 2, 2009) -- The No. 7 Jim Beam Toyota Camry returns to racing action this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, one of the fastest intermediate tracks on the NASCAR circuit. Sunday's Samsung 500 will mark Robby Gordon's 12th start at the 1.5-mile oval.

Texas Thoughts -- "We are really looking forward to the Texas race this weekend. For the first time, we will be racing a new spec car that was built at RGM from the ground up. It is the first COT chassis that we have built at our shop, so we are all excited to see how it performs this weekend especially with this year's no testing policy," commented Robby Gordon. "We had a fairly decent run at Atlanta a couple weeks ago. We took some positives out of Atlanta and hope to build upon them at Texas."

Dallas Stars Outing - Robby Gordon and his No.7 Jim Beam crew will be cheering on the Dallas Stars during their last regular season home game, Saturday, April 4.

"When I heard the Stars were going to be in town Saturday, it sounded like a great way to relax after a day at the track," said Gordon. "So I'm taking my team for a night out. I've always heard the Stars put on a great show, plus they are getting ready for the playoffs, so I'm looking forward to an exciting evening!"

Exciting Announcement: Polaris Industries and Robby Gordon announced that they collectively entered into a marketing and product development agreement earlier this week. The three-year agreement includes Gordon providing insight on future products and promoting Polaris' RANGER RZR Side-by-Sides. Gordon's vast knowledge of off-road vehicles, from a racing perspective and through his product development experience gained from building his own trophy trucks and accessories with his company, Robby Gordon Off-Road, will be a valuable asset in creating and promoting new RANGER RZR Side-by-Sides and accessories.

"I am very excited to be involved with Polaris. They are the leading American manufacturer in consumer off-road vehicles. The RANGER RZR and the RANGER have set the standard in side-by-side vehicles. At Robby Gordon Off-road, we have built the fastest, most elite off-road vehicles in the world. We are excited to share this technology and knowledge with consumers through our partnership with Polaris," said Gordon.
