Robby Gordon plans to run the full race at Talladega according to his Planet Robby Facebook page. Gordon, who runs his own team, will have to turn a fast lap in qualifying since he is not locked into the top-35 in owner points. There have also been no details on who Gordon plans to draft with as the Facebook page says they will wait to see who makes the field.
The best finish for Gordon on the season was a 16th place run at Daytona. Earlier in the year he ran 20th at Talladega.
Gordon last ran a full race at Watkins Glen which was 9 races ago. Since then he has shared the seat of the #7 in start and park efforts. The team plans to run the full race at Texas in November. This week the #7 Dodge has Speed Energy/MAPEI/Menards listed as the sponsors.
