NC – The second Charlotte race saw Robby
Gordon make the transformation from race car driver to Wolf Man.
Gordon’s neon-orange Ford Taurus featured the classic Universal
on its hood as part of the Monsters of the Speedway promotion. Gordon
qualified 25th, locking himself in on the first day for the sixth
time in 16 events. In the race Gordon struggled with handling early,
but later started to make progress moving into the top-20. On lap
184 he went wide attempting to pass in turn one and got into the
marbles. The car shot straight towards the wall as Gordon tried
to save it, but without traction he hit and was forced out.
position – 25th
position – 38th (contact)
