Robby Gordon Motorsports will debut its Menards Chevrolet at Michigan International Speedway this weekend in the Batman Begins 400. This will be the first of three races Menards will serve as the team’s primary sponsor, with races at Chicagoland Speedway and the second Michigan race in August.

Menards, the country’s third-largest home improvement store chain with more than 200 stores, serves as an associate sponsor on all of the RGM No. 7 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series entries. In addition, Menard Engineering Group, a separate company also owned by Menards’ owner John Menard, builds the engines for the team’s Nextel Cup cars.

“It’s been a long time since I have had the opportunity to drive a Menards sponsored car,” Gordon said. “John and I have had a long friendship and close working relationship, and the last time I drove a Menards’ sponsored car we almost won a pretty big race. With the way our team has been improving over the last four weeks or so, particularly with how much stonger the engine program has become, maybe this will be the turning point of our season and we’ll win that big race that we’ve been looking for.”

Gordon and Menard were co-owners in the Menards’ sponsored 1999 Indianapolis 500 effort where Gordon led the field by a wide margin coming to the white flag, only to run out of fuel and finish fourth.

In addition to Menards, the No. 7 Chevrolet will also have sponsorship from Fruit of the Loom, Harrah’s and Jim Beam at Michigan.

Harrah’s will return to the track as the primary sponsor for the team’s effort at Infineon Raceway next week, while Fruit of the Loom will take the team to Daytona for the Pepsi 400 at Daytona on July 2.
