DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 26, 2004) -- Spirit of Daytona Racing announced that NASCAR driver Robby Gordon will drive for the team in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. Gordon joins owner/driver Doug Goad and Stephan Gregoire to create an experienced driver lineup for the grueling 24-hour event.
Gordon is no stranger to the Rolex 24 At Daytona, having competed in several races and winning in class four times with Roush Racing. In 2002, Gordon finished second overall in the prototype class.
"To have a driver of Robby's caliber join our team for the Rolex 24 is very exciting," said Spirit of Daytona Racing owner/driver Doug Goad. "Robby is a world-class road racer and will compliment our driver lineup very well to give us a great chance at overall victory."
"I am very excited to compete in the Rolex 24 Hours At Daytona again," said Gordon. "I have had success there in the past, and I am motivated to win the event overall, and the Crawford Daytona Prototype with the Pontiac engine provides the opportunity to do well."
"The level of competition entered in this year's Rolex 24 is fierce, and we felt that we needed very experienced and capable drivers to have a chance at overall victory," said co-owner/team manager Troy Flis. "I think our driver lineup is as good as anyone entered in the race and will provide us the opportunity to have a great start to the 2004 season."
Robby Gordon can be seen in the 42nd Anniversary of the Rolex 24 At Daytona that will be held January 29 - February 1. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 386-253-RACE.
