Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Robby Gordon is a competitor’s competitor. A guy who can get behind the wheel of just about anything and make it perform. You might say that Gordon is a badass that was made more in the style of Sixties era racers like Foyt, Gurney and Andretti.
Ok, enough man love for Gordon. These days, the guy is most likely to be seen at the wheel of some sort of racing truck, preferably in the dirt. The racer’s bid to win the 2014 Mint 400 ended just a few miles in, when his truck’s transmission broke. Looking at the insane pounding the truck takes on the desert trails near Vegas, it is little wonder than mechanical failures are a regular part of desert racing.
