Statement from Doug Hervey, North American Operations Manager, Ford Racing Technology, on the departure of Robby Gordon:

"Robby made a difficult decision to do what he thought was necessary to financially support and stabilize his race team. We were fully prepared to continue our commitment with him this year, and had plans to increase our level of engineering support, before he told us of this decision to partner up with Gillett Evernham Motorsports. As a manufacturer, we're disappointed to be losing him and his team, but understand the difficulties of running a one-car team in the sport today."
