One of the most versatile drivers in the world, Robby Gordon has competed in a wide range of series including NASCAR, CART, IndyCar, Trans-Am, IMSA, IROC and the Dakar Rally.

Experienced in everything from sports cars to trucks, Gordon raced for over 20 years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, taking three wins and 39 top-tens. He spent eight years in the CART IndyCar series and even more time in off-road racing. He has won seven SCORE International championships to go with his four Baja 500 wins and three Baja 1000 wins.

Now a regular on the punishing Dakar Rally, for the last two years Gordon has won the championship in the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS in one of his spectacular Stadium Super Trucks, which are appearing at ROC 2014.
