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)

Alison knows more than anyone on this thread.

I was trying a little sarcasm. I guess it didn't work. I apologize.

ahhh the good old days.

For me, I don't care what it is or where it's at.
If RG is racing, I'm in!!

I sure do miss SpeedFactory TV.

Time to bring back SpeedFactory. Good to start building more into the background of SST, and followup on how Dakar went. Plus the added bonus of the details on the few NASCAR events.

Interesting.. never rule anything out.

I missed him bad last year in NASCAR! I found myself rooting for Phoenix Racing and Furniture Row because I like the small teams that get it done with 10-15 people, not a massive 300-400 team effort.
