Bobby Labonte to Drive for Robby Gordon Motorsports at Loudon
Former Champ to Pilot No. 7 Toyota at NHMS
Charlotte, NC (June 23, 2010) - Robby Gordon Motorsports will put 2000 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Bobby Labonte behind the wheel of the No. 7 Toyota at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 this weekend in a current one-race deal.
"When we found out that Bobby was available to drive for us, we jumped at it," said team owner Robby Gordon. "To have a past champion driving your car is a good opportunity. I think we can learn from him this weekend and it will help our program moving forward."
Robby Gordon Motorsports finished second in last weekend's race at the Infineon Raceway.
"I can't thank Robby and his folks enough for this opportunity," said Labonte. "We're going to New Hampshire with the goal of having another solid run for his team. They had a great finish at Sonoma and have some momentum right now. I'm just thankful for the opportunity and hope to get another solid finish for his team."
Labonte will be making his first start for Robby Gordon Motorsports and plans on running the full race this Sunday.
