No. 7 Jim Beam Toyota
Owner: Robby Gordon
Driver: Robby Gordon
Crew chief: Kirk Almquist
Sprint Cup debut: 1991
Career Sprint Cup wins: 3
2008 Sprint Cup rank: 33
2009 fantasy outlook: A talented off-road driver, Gordon has again found
sponsorship from Jim Beam for a full slate of races (13 as the primary sponsor).
Jim Beam, apparently, wasn't scared off by Gordon's five-year winless streak
or his failure to place in the top 25 in the points standings in any of the
last four years. His four laps lead, four DNFs and zero top-fives last year
didn't deter them, either. Gordon will also be adapting to a Toyota after spending
last season driving a Dodge. View him as a No. 4 driver, though he has better
value on the road courses.
