DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Tina Gordon posted times among the fastest dozen NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series drivers participating in the NASCAR Preseason Thunder testing sessions at the Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway Saturday, January 10. Gordon was making her debut in a Chevrolet Silverado fielded by ThorSport Racing.

"I couldn't be happier with how everything went today," Gordon said. "For this to be our first day working together as a team, and for us to be in the top-12, is just fantastic."
