Robby Gordon (No. 7 MAPEI/Save Mart Supermarkets Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 34th - HOW HAPPY ARE YOU WITH YOUR QUALIFYING LAP? “I’m happy because we’re in the race on Sunday. I’m not happy with where we’re going to end up in qualifying. We just struggled for forward bite. I was very conservative on my lap. Our car has more than (that) but I just couldn’t push it like I wanted to. If I make one mistake, I go home. I had to be conservative and we got a decent lap in our Save Mart Dodge.”
WHAT WILL YOU WORK ON TOMORROW IN THE FINAL PRACTICES? “We know what we need to do. When you’re outside of the top 35 in owner points you have to play it safe in qualifying. We made the show. There’s two different races, one to get into the race and the race itself. We really have to work on fuel mileage, fuel mileage and fuel mileage. We’ll look at rear tire wear as well. Those are the two things and then we’ll go for it.”
Strong Point = RGM
Weak Point = Yellow flag
Nothing to lose
Starting in the back...can get off "cycle" and see what happens
Gets the lead...will be like passing ohh something the size of Texas
Go get 'em #7 GAS ON!
RG- Strong point-One of the best "thinking" drivers out on the track. RG can take crap and move it to the front.
RG's issues have been lack of regular pit crew and pit stop issues. Timing is everything in road course racing.
I'm actually expecting to see him up front at some point during the race.
