Gordon sells team

UPDATE This rumor is downgraded to 'false' today. One of the hot rumors last week was the sale of Robby Gordon Motorsports to Alex Gillett, son of Gillett Evernham Motorsports primary owner George Gillett Jr. On Friday at Bristol, the owner/driver Gordon said it was business as usual for him. “I haven't sold my race team," Gordon said. "People talk and there are a lot of interesting things going on, but right now, it's business as usual. I bet last year, 20 people came to me asking me if I was interested in selling my team, so it is what it is." NASCAR.com

03/10/08 Jayski.com is reporting that Alex Gillett [George Gillett’s son] has purchased Robby Gordon Motorsports [#7 Dodge] and will run it as a separate entity from Gillett-Evernham Motorsports. Plans are to eventually expand it to a multi-car team.

Assuming Robby Gordon will stay on as driver…if this is true. Currently Gordon owns the team, but has a technological and marketing partnership with Gillett Evernham Motorsports and is 24th in driver/owners points.
