Warner Music Nashville – Gordon will debut the No. 7 Warner Music Nashville / Whitney Duncan Camry this weekend. The Toyota entry will be a joint effort between Robby Gordon Motorsports and BAM Racing.
Robby’s Remarks – “Fontana is a really cool race for me because it allows me to return to my home track and race in front of my friends and family,” said Gordon. “I’m even more excited about the race this year since I have the chance to debut a new sponsor on the No. 7 Camry. Our partnership with BAM Racing has been great, and having Warner Music Nashville and Whitney Duncan on the hood of our car this weekend is just another benefit resulting from that relationship.”
