Robby Gordon to Start 19th at NASCAR's Unofficial Home Track

CONCORD, NC (Oct. 12, 2006) -- Qualifying with a lap of 28.845 seconds (187.207 mph) under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Robby Gordon and the No. 7 Menards/MAPEI Chevy will start in the 19th position for Saturday night's NASCAR Nextel Cup Series' Bank of America 500.

"I thought we were going to be better than that," said Gordon. "We ran a couple of qualifying laps in practice and I was very happy with what we saw. The car felt good after my first lap and I tried to get a little bit more on my second lap and got it loose going into turn 1. The car is good in race trim so we'll work on it some more in practice tomorrow and start from there Saturday night."
