WATKINS GLEN, NY (August 7, 2009) As Robby Gordon attempts to make his first NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the 2009 season this weekend in the No.55 Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas / The Rogue Joint Camry, he was a top the leader board in today's two practice sessions. He was third and fourth posting speeds of 119.984 and 120.278 respectively.

"I am really proud of the effort of the No.55 this weekend. Obviously, this is our first Nationwide start in over a year, and I believe that we have a car that is capable of sitting on the front row tomorrow and racing well. I am excited to have Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas onboard this weekend and look forward to tomorrow's race," commented Gordon. "If you look at everyone's average lap times, we have the best car in the field based on race trim. I know that we finished fourth in final practice, but that was because other cars ran through the bus stop. Tomorrow is going to be a good day for the No.55 Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas Camry.
