Robby Gordon unlikely to run NASCAR in 2013 - UPDATE "Never rule anything out" 12/21/12

Not a big surprise to some of us...

Robby Gordon, who raced his way into the Daytona 500 last year as part of a light NASCAR schedule, is not scheduled to do any NASCAR racing in 2013. Spokesperson Alison McCabe said she doesn't think Gordon will participate in NASCAR due to his involvement in his new racing project, Robby Gordon's Stadium Super Trucks series. The 12-race off-road stadium series will debut April 6 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. The Stadium Super Trucks series will be televised by NBC and the NBC Sports Network. Sponsorship woes with his self-owned team led to him racing only three times in 2012: the season-opener at Daytona, race No. 2 at Phoenix and the road-course race at Sonoma. He failed to qualify for early-season races at Las Vegas and Fontana. (12/19/12)

 

UPDATE: "With Robby's attention towards the 2013 Dakar Rally and the inaugural season of Robby Gordon OFF-ROAD's Stadium SUPER Truck Series (SST), there has been a lot of speculation regarding his future NASCAR plans. We are all focused on providing an exciting kick-off to the 2013 SST season at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ on April 6th. At the same time, we would never rule out the possibility of running selected NASCAR events."(RGM/Spokesperson Alison McCabe)(12-21-2012)

If a sponsor steps up for Daytona or one of the roadies I'm sure Robby will be there.

So your saying there's a chance.:)

That was great! Love the hair too...

I didn't know Dale Jr made a movie ROTFLMAO

It's RG, there is always a chance for anything lol

Gee there's a surprise . I'm am soooooo totally stunned ! Next your gonna tell me there's no such thing as Santa Claus .

So Sad, but probably the best decision for this year. On to 2014.
Don't give up the 7.

Sorry, but I'm going to miss him in it. As an underdog fan, it was great to see him last year race his way into the 500! That was a great day!!

If Robby could get a 1/2 way decent ride then yes I'd love to see him back in NASCAR but we all know THAT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN . His last name may be Gordon but Robby isn't the golden boy you have to be to get it . Robby is his own man and fights his own fights . Besides why go back to cup and be a also ran when Robby is winning not only races but CHAMPIONSHIPS in offroad .

Money. last I checked NASCAR paid a lot more. Not sure why most of you hate NASCAR. Racing is racing to me in every professional form. i enjoy it and I enjoyed watching RG run whatever it was he ran. I hated seeing him run in the back the last few years of cup, but it was still someone to cheer for.
