Pay Dirt!

A Team Red Bull shout out to fellow Cup owner and driver Robby Gordon for pinning his Red Bull Trophy Truck to the Mexican asphalt (that'd be dirt) in dominating this year's Baja 1000 off-road race. Robby and his 2nd driver Andy McMillin had a flawless, 19-and-a-half-hour run from Ensenada to La Paz. Robby drove the first 752 miles of the course before quickly helicoptering and grabbing a jet ride to Miami-Homestead this morning for his Cup duties. Today's victory turns the tide on a recent string of bad luck in Baja (last year he busted a left rear shock one-third of the way into the race). Click here for cool helmet-cam video of a Red Bull Air Force skydiver delivering the Baja 1000 start flag yesterday. He nearly takes out drivers at the start line. Yet, another successful jump. Ditto for Robby. AJ and Brian, ya better get those Tundra's tires warmed up.

Congrats to Robby. Will Red Bull's affiliation continue with him even though he drives a Chevy in the Cup series?

Now that the season is over, Brian is all yours. It's bittersweet as a fan, having followed him since 2003, but I'm really looking forward to Brian having the chance to become a leader at Red Bull Racing, without having to live with all the other Champions at Hendrick. Treat him well. :)

I just hope he qualifies sometime within the first 5 races.

I think he will. Brian's always been a decent-to-good qualifier.
