NASCAR Driver -- I Got Stiffed By ExtenzeUPDATE Robby Gordon sued Extenze parent company Biotab Nutraceuticals to pay $690,000 he claims it owes him, a portion of which includes payment for two races in which he replaced Kevin Conway in the No. 7 car late in the 2010 season.
In a lawsuit filed by his Robby Gordon Motorsports last Friday in California Superior Court in Los Angeles, Gordon claims that Biotab owner Robert Winter approved the driver change for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Charlotte and Martinsville, a move that was made in an attempt to keep the No. 7 entry in the top 35 in car owner points.
Biotab was paying $230,000 per race to Robby Gordon Motorsports for six races ($1.38 million) late in the season. Gordon claims it has not paid for Charlotte, Martinsville nor the season finale at Homestead.
12/04/10 NASCAR driver Robby Gordon claims he was used and abused by the people who make Extenze -- claiming he put their logo on a car he owned ... but instead of paying him, they gave him the shaft.
Gordon claims the company behind the penis pills agreed to fork over a ton of cash if Robbie -- who owns a race car team -- would splash the logo on a car operated by his driver Kevin Conway at NASCAR events in October and November.
But when Kevin was in danger of falling out of the prestigious top 35 ranked cars -- Robbie asked the Extenze people if he could personally drive the Extenze car instead.
In his lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Gordon claims the Extenze people initially agreed to the deal ... so he made the switch.
It was only after the races, Gordon claims, that Extenze refused to pay him citing breach of contract because he got in the driver's seat instead of Kevin.
Now, Gordon wants Extenze to pay him at least $690,000 to, ahem, straighten things out. TMZ Sports
