Robby Gordon has admitted that he will not run the full Sprint Cup Series schedule, owing to a lack of sponsorship on his No. 7 Toyota, including splitting the schedule with his team's new partner, BAM Racing. Instead, the Californian – a winner in CART Indy cars and more recently in off-road racing in addition to his NASCAR programs – says he is looking to diversify his 2010 program. Gordon indicated a return to the Indianapolis 500, as well as the X Games and a Monster Truck program, are all possibilities.
"We've got a commitment with Monster Energy to do a few NASCAR races, and Daytona is one of those races," Gordon told Sirius Radio's Tradin' Paint show. "Between our Monster Energy program and the deal we've got put together with BAM and Warner Music Nashville, we're trying to piece it so we can keep one car running all the time. That's obviously our goal.
"Obviously, [to be in the Cup garage every weekend] is our goal," Gordon added. "Unfortunately, there are going to be some schedule conflicts [because] I'd really like to do the X Games' rally deal and I would like to do the Indy 500."
