    The buggies haven't been really tested. That's gonna cost them later on, surely.

    2nd on stage, 13th overall, and 46.47 behind leaders. Huge spread in the top 10 after only 3 days. Better starting position tomorrow.

    Oh, and it seems this should be results for this stage, not overall results as of this point.

    Heh, camera angle makes it look like Robby's crew are all under 4ft tall.

    Stage 3 Highlight!- RG Carries Parts For JC
    Robby Gordon picked up parts for Johnny Campbell's bike before the HUMMER started todays special. Robby found Johnny and his bike, turned around and dropped the necessary parts to Campbell. That's what we call USA teamwork. Tune in tonight on NBC Sports (11:00 & 11:30 PST) to hear Robby talk about it- CHECK LOCAL LISTINGS

    That right there is why I'm a RG fan and not a buggy lover. For all the brashness and tantrums, when it comes to the nut cutting, RG is a competitor and a loyal sportsman.

    He even cleans the goggles for certain pilots on this forum... :augie

    Agree, watching Robbie playing with the local kids with the RC Hummer shows he is a good guy really, just a very focussed competitor and hates to lose, don't we all.
    Good job helping out JC.

    Watching that latest vid, it sure doesn't seem like RG is pushing as hard a he could....knowing that there is a lot of race to go.
