Gordon stands pat on engine
Robby Gordon talked about negotiating a new engine for the Daytona 500 but after his crew, with the help of engine rebuilder Joey Arrington, disassembled the engine and looked it over, a faulty O-ring had caused an oil leak in last Thursday's Gatorade Duel 150 and it was deemed to be safe for the Daytona 500.
Gordon, who with his Robby Gordon Off-Road team continues his activity in a variety of events, will be at Phoenix for this weekend's entire schedule. Gordon has a conflict the weekend of Las Vegas with the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 off-road race in Mexico. Gordon said he would go to Vegas on Friday, have Reed Sorenson qualify his No. 7 Dodge on Saturday before Gordon returns to run Sunday's Sprint Cup race.
sounds like a plan!
Sounds like a Great Plan...
That works for me!! "The Marathon Man"
I cannot remember what race it was at the tail end of last years season where oil was dropped by an in house motor during qualifying that was a fault of an o ring. If memory serves correctly it was an engine from the evernham motorsports era, different than the current R07 ones Penske is building. Was this the same problem as last year?
O rings are my best friend- friends. When an O ring fails it is like "Wow an O ring failed". When a friend fails its like "why can't you be more like an O ring" which we all know is counted on to do the simplest job, sometimes under severe pressure but simple just the same however when failure occurs it might as well been something important like a friend.
