Robby Gordon Sues ExtenZe Racing Over Non-Payment
Robby Gordon has filed a lawsuit against ExtenZe Racing, claiming that they have not paid him for putting their logo on his Robby Gordon Motorsports Sprint Cup cars this season.
In his suit, Gordon says that Extenze Racing agreed to pay him if he put their logo on RGM’s Toyotas, which were going to be driven by their driver, Kevin Conway.
When Conway was in danger of falling out of the top 35, Gordon got behind the wheel after clearing the move with the ExtenZe Racing officials, he says. They agreed to the deal.
However, after the races were completed, ExtenZe refused to pay, citing breach of contract because he drove the car instead of Conway.
Gordon is seeking $690,000.
Gordon is no stranger to legal action. So far this season, he has taken legal action against BAM Racing, and he has been in a legal dispute over his newly created energy drink company, Speed Energy Drink.
ExtenZe, however, is also tied up in its own legal battle. Front Row Motorsports, the team that fielded cars for Conway and ExtenZe originally, is suing the team for non-payment for part of the deal that allowed Conway to drive FRM cars for the early part of last season.
