SPOT teamed up with Robby Gordon as his primary sponsor during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at Bristol Motor Speedway - “the king of NASCAR short tracks” in Tennessee where he placed in the top-half. His No. 7 Toyota Camry was branded in SPOT’s familiar black and orange colors.
“As an avid supporter of Robby Gordon, we would like to congratulate him on his tremendous results this week at Lowe's Motor Speedway,” said Tom Colby, chief operating officer of Globalstar Inc. and president of SPOT LLC. “Robby’s third-place finish Monday reminds everyone that he is great competitor whether off-road or on track.”
SPOT is a product sponsor for Robby Gordon’s off-road racing pursuits, competing in the Dakar Rally and the Tecate SCORE Desert Racing Series including the famous Baja 1000. Robby maintains overall and SCORE Trophy-Truck point lead in 2009 SCORE Desert Series.
An early adopter of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger™, Robby Gordon uses its satellite and GPS technology to stay connected with his support team and his friends and family while practicing and racing off-road, often times in extreme remote areas. SPOT enables Robby to send his GPS location and selected message to his contacts so they know he is OK. SPOT also allows others to track his GPS position updated automatically in real-time on Google Maps™.
Robby currently holds 34th in overall NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points. The next series race is scheduled for Dover International Speedway on Sunday, May 31, 2009.
