Robby Gordon is recognized as one of the most versatile and passionate drivers in racing today. He has demonstrated his great talent during some of the most prestigious races in the world including the Baja 1000, Indianapolis 500, Daytona 500 and Rolex 24 at Daytona. Gordon is well known for his road course racing abilities and has made his mark at The Glen while driving in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. He has claimed 5 Top-5 finishes in his 8 starts at The Glen including a win in 2003. Gordon and Kurt Busch gave race fans a finish to remember in last year's NASCAR Busch Series Zippo 200. The two drivers got into the sides of each other as Gordon did a little off-roading through the Inner Loop on the final lap of the race but luckily neither driver wrecked and Busch held on for the hard fought victory. This year Gordon is expected to once again compete in both the NASCAR Busch Series Zippo 200 on Saturday, August 11th and the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Centurion Boats at The Glen on Sunday, August 12th.
One of New York State's largest weekend spectator sporting event returns August 9-12 with the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series taking center stage on Sunday in the much-anticipated Centurion Boats at The Glen. The NASCAR Busch Series is back for a third straight year to compete in the Zippo 200 on Saturday and the stars of the Rolex Sports Car Series take to the track on Friday night. Weekend tickets start at only $80 and are still available. A complete weekend schedule can be found on www.TheGlen.com.
