The thrill of racing for Gordy is the
competition and just the thrill. Driving a sprinter is awesome.
Everybody should have the chance to do it. His most exciting
racing moment was anytime you win is exciting but running with the
Outlaws is always fun. Just a good hard race where you give it all
you got is satisfying. He's most proud of lasting this long in the
sport as a hired driver. Also the amazing people we have met over
the years. Racing people are really neat people.
