Charlotte, NC (October 21, 2011) – Making his 22nd career start at Talladega Superspeedway, Robby Gordon will be piloting the No. 7 SPEED Energy/MAPEI Dodge Charger in the Good Sam Club 500 this weekend. In the spring event at the 2.66 mile tri-oval, Robby Gordon and the SPEED Energy team rallied to claim a 20th place finish.

“Restrictor plate racing is usually good for our team.  We can come out of here with a decent finish and improve on our record from earlier this year.  The key is trying to find the right partner to push you toward the front.  My car seems like it works better while pushing someone else. Happy to have MAPEI on board for Talladega…it should be a fun one,” says Gordon.

ROBBY GORDON, No. 77 (Fifth in class. Gordon drove the entire race.) – It was good. There were a lot of people out there having fun. We didn’t pass anybody. That’s the reality of it. With Trophy-Trucks today you don’t pass anybody. You can’t; it’s physically impossible because even a slow car causes so much dust that you can’t pass. I couldn’t pass somebody for 100 miles. I followed Kory (Scheeler) for about 200 miles about 100 yards back. I had to change a right-rear (tire), but it is in the system because as soon as I changed the other right rear, I plugged in and the air started going down. We stopped, unplugged it and went with it. It is our own central air system but we still fight with it a little bit in the CV joints. It was a good course, just tough to pass.
