Heath HeidemannCorrespondent INovember 20, 2008

This Friday at 10 a.m. Eastern, Robby Gordon will continue his racing season, but this time on a very different type of track.

Once again, Robby is competing in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

The Baja 1000 is the world's longest off-road race at just over 630 miles. The course starts in Ensenada, Mexico, and continue to northern Baja California. It will consist of six checkpoints, plus the finish line.

The vehicles start in 30-second intervals of each other, must stop at all checkpoints, and must complete the course in 31 hours.

Gordon is entered in the No. 77 Monster Energy Drink/Toyo Tires/4 Wheel Parts Trophy Truck.

Robby is a three-time winner of the 1000 ('87, '89, '06).

NBC will carry a one-hour version of this race on Dec. 14, or you can follow it live on the SCORE website at
