Rockingham – February 27, 2000

Rockingham, NC – Robby Gordon’s first practice almost ended in disaster at Rockingham as he went too hot into the first corner on his first lap and nearly lost control of the car. But he regained composure and came up with a fantastic qualifying run that put him in the field safely in 25th position. Early in the race, Gordon was caught up in a spin by Kenny Irwin which somehow jarred the power-steering pulley loose. He was forced to race without power-steering much of the event until yellows allowed for a change to be made. Gordon finished 38th.
