Robby Gordon, who raced his way into the Daytona 500 last year as part of a light NASCAR schedule, is not scheduled to do any NASCAR racing in 2013, a Gordon representative said via e-mail Monday evening.
Spokesperson Alison McCabe said she doesn’t think Gordon will participate in NASCAR due to his involvement in his new racing project, Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks series. The 12-race off-road stadium series will debut April 6 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
The Stadium Super Trucks series will be televised by NBC and the NBC Sports Network.
Gordon, 43, who will compete in the Dakar Rally off-road event beginning Jan. 5 in Lima, Peru, raced full-time in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup from 2002-11, and won three times.
But sponsorship woes with his self-owned team led to him racing only three times in 2012: the season-opener at Daytona, race No. 2 at Phoenix and the road-course race at Sonoma. He failed to qualify for early-season races at Las Vegas and Fontana.
