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)

his restrictor plate cars are as good as the rest ,don't sell your daytona tickets it would be a shame if you weren't there to watch his first win

Thread life support #92

I thought all his nascar cars were converted to everyday drivers and sold at auction.

nope. Only a few of the older ones.

To all the people that keep bringing up Danica and the #7, I take it you do not realize that the only reason she ran that number is because Bryan Herta left Andretti and she was the driver hired to replace him. The only reason she ran/runs the #7 in NNS is because when she first came over to NASCAR she was still under contract to Andretti and he would only let her race if she could drive the #7 in hopes that it would generate more merchandise sales on the Indycar side as well.

Danica is very happy with #10.

As in #10 (movie)

Not even close, the puppies she has have matured and will not get past a #5....
