Robby Gordon's Quotes on the Glen

You're making your return to the Busch Series this weekend. What are your chances?

"We definitely have as good a shot as anyone else. We finished second last year to (Ryan) Newman and had a really good run going, got caught by a caution on pit road, had to start from the back and just ran out of laps. Hopefully we can bring home the win this time for Harrah's and our other sponsors. A solid run on Saturday obviously would carry a lot of momentum into Sunday's Cup race where we should be a contender as well."

Harrah's Fast Facts:

Welcome Back -- This weekend's NASCAR Busch Series race, the Zippo 200, will mark the second appearance in 2006 for Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. as the primary sponsor of the No. 7 Chevy Busch Series car. Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. and Caesars Entertainment recently merged in the largest transaction in gaming history. The consolidated company now owns or manages through various subsidiaries more than 40 casinos in three countries, primarily under the Harrah's, Caesars and Horseshoe brand names. With nearly four million square feet of casino space, more than 40,000 hotel rooms and nearly 100,000 employees, the Harrah's portfolio is the most diverse in the gaming industry. Jim Beam, Menards and CarLoan.com will serve as associates.

The Numbers Don't Lie -- With an average starting position of 3.0 and an average finish of 3.5 at the Glen in the Busch Series, all eyes will be on Gordon as he attempts to complete the sweep of the Busch and Cup series races.

Winning Ways -- Gordon, regarded as one of NASCAR's premier road-course drivers, will attempt to capture his fourth win overall and second career win at the 2.45-mile road course. Gordon cruised to victory lane at the Glen in 2003, completing his sweep of the Nextel Cup road-course races that year.
