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.

Gordy's racing hero is Gilles Villenueve - F-1.

Of racing, Gordy says, "You gotta experience it.  It's quite a show.  It's very hard to shake once it gets in your blood!".
