WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (August 8, 2003) -- NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver Robby Gordon has been added to Cegwa Sport's driver lineup for tonight's Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series Bully Hill Vineyards 250 at Watkins Glen International. Gordon will partner with Darius Grala and R.J. Valentine in the No. 3 Toyota-powered Daytona Prototype.

"I really like this series. It's a lot like what I came from," remarked Gordon, who is known as one of the NASCAR's road racing experts. "And besides, what else am I going to do tonight? Sit in my motor coach?"

Gordon won the GTS class at the Rolex 24 At Daytona four years in a row (1990-'93) and finished second overall at the Rolex 24 in 2001. His most recent road racing victory came earlier this season, winning the NASCAR Winston Cup Series race in Sonoma.

Gordon is one of three NASCAR drivers slated to drive in the Bully Hill Vineyards 250. Geoffrey Bodine will race in the G&W Motorsports No. 8 BMW Daytona Prototype, and Kyle Petty will join Academy Award-winner Paul Newman in the Gunnar Racing No. 6 Porsche GT1.

The Bully Hill Vineyards 250 is expected to get underway at approximately 6:30 p.m. tonight. The race will be broadcast on SPEED Channel this Sunday, August 10 at 5 p.m. ET.
