ROBBY GORDON SPEAKS
Robby Gordon just told the Register that his father missed a doctor's appointment Wednesday, which is when he and others became concerned.
They began a search, and his dad's best friend, Jay Hooker, an old racing friend, discovered the bodies and called police.
Robby Gordon declined comment on what happened until after he talks with the coroner, but said he believes he may know what occurred.
Bob Gordon, his son said, was instrumental in launching the careers of many young drivers including NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, who rode with Bob in off-road races.
"This is devastating," Robby Gordon said, fighting back tears. "He taught so many, and I want everyone to know what a good man he was."
Gordon said his off-road races at the Costa Mesa fairgrounds will go on as scheduled because of business commitments.
"And to switch from what happened to a business mode really stinks," Gordon said.
Robby Gordon has three sisters. One, Beccy, had a child Wednesday.
Robbie Gordon learned to ride horses at his family’s home in Orange. He learned to drive a car there, too.
But on Thursday morning, he stood in a driveway adjacent to that house – and fought back tears.
“The truth will come out,” the race car driver said in a short statement to reporters about the death of his father, “Baja Bob” Gordon and his wife, Sharon Gordon.
Jimmie did tweet about it
