Nascar.com is reporting that Robby has decided not to run next weekend at New Hampshire because of lack of sponsorship. Robby Gordon Motorsports will be running a car with P.J. Jones only. Is this true!
Jim Beam wrote RGM cheques for 5 years, not 4. I agree that Crown Royal is a lone wolf (as far as hard liquor goes) in a billion dollar sport. Money is very hard to find right now. The companies are trimming the fat bigtime. I don't understand why companies like GEICO don't spend money with RGM. He's almost always in the show and is more marketable than Mad Max. Don't get me wrong, I like Max Papis. I just think Robby is a better return on the dollar. Just my opinion.
Monster did so much for Robby this year to help make up for the departure of Jim Beam. I would never criticize their financial business decision and just thank them for their support to date. Sure I would like them to sponsor Robby as much as everyone else on this site, but it just doesn't fit the business model. Can't fault them for that.
