Robby Gordon To Start 14th at the Monster Mile

DOVER, Del. (Sept. 22, 2006) -- Qualifying with a lap of 23.296 seconds (154.533 mph) at the 1-mile concrete oval, Robby Gordon and the No. 7 Menards/MAPEI Chevy will start in the 14th position for Sunday's NASCAR Nextel Cup Series' Dover 400.

"We really had a good lap," said Gordon."I could only get one (lap) in after the car broke loose on my second lap, but I'm still pretty psyched about the lap we did get in. We don't necessarily have the best record when it comes to qualifying here and when the car really hooked up in practice I knew that we were going to have a good qualifying effort. We ran both qualifying and race runs and to be honest we were faster in race setup. We'll start from there on Sunday and see what happens."
