Robby Gordon #22 Johns Manville/Panasonic/Menards Toyota-Eagle Race Notes/Quotes ­ Sunday, September 26, 1999 TEXACO GRAND PRIX OF HOUSTON Round 18 of 20 in the CART FedEx Championship Series

Finishing Position - 20th


ROBBY GORDON ­ "I'm so disappointed. We were having a great run that might have landed us as high as the top five in the end. How frustrating can it get, though? This would have been a big boost for us with the luck we've had lately. But what can you do? We'll just pack it up, drive home and look forward to Australia.

"The car was good today, though. We had some good strategy and we were making great mileage. On the back straight, we were making good power and the Eagle was fast. We kept chipping away, playing the same strategy as Tracy, trying to make the race in one stop. But as I came up to turn six on that last lap for us, the car just shut off. It came back, but the damage was done. The dash went out and the engine continued to cut out."
