· Welcome Back – Menards and MAPEI team up for the fourth time in the 2007 NASCAR Nextel Cup season as the primary sponsor of Robby Gordon’s No. 7 Ford Fusion. MAPEI, a global corporation, has been supplying residential and major commercial projects with total installation solutions for tile and stone, floor covering and decorative concrete as well as concrete restoration for more than 65 years. Visit http://www.mapei.com/ for technical information or call 1-800-42-MAPEI (1-800-426-2734) for the nearest location. Jim Beam and Motorola will serve as associates.

· Chassis – Robby Gordon will compete in chassis No. 202 at the 1-mile concrete bull ring of Dover International Speedway. Chassis No. 202 last on-track action was at test at Nashville Super Speedway last week and also served as the primary at Martinsville Speedway earlier in the year. Chassis No. 204, which raced at Darlington, will serve as back up.

· Points Position – Following the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, Robby Gordon and his No. 7 Ford Fusion is in the 33rd position in NASCAR Nextel Cup owner point standings, only 190 points out of 20th.

· Playing in the Dirt – Gordon, widely regarded as one of the best off-road racers of all time, is a threat to win Saturday’s Baja 500 title in the Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Chevrolet CK1500. With over 750 horsepower and almost 40 inches of wheel travel, Gordon will be tearing through the Baja Peninsula at speeds more than 125 mph, while P.J. Jones practices his No. 7 Ford at the Monster Mile of Dover.

· Robby Gordon’s Quotes on DoverDover is a tough track. Although it’s twice the size of Bristol, they are very similar. Everything happens fast at Dover, and you are constantly on the wheel.”
