Robby Gordon Faces Lawsuit From GEM

I haven't been feeling well these past few days, so that is why I haven't been posting at my regular pace, but I came across something tonight I just had to share with you and I honestly don't know what to make of this. I really don't. I came across this over at scenedaily.com.

 

Gillette Evernham Motorsports (GEM) is suing Robby Gordon Motorsports (RGM) because they "violated terms of a tentative agreement that would have sold his team to GEM for $23.5 million earlier this year."

 

I always thought that GEM would eventually buy RGM or maybe RGM would become a satellite organization under the GEM umbrella to get around the 4 car rule set in place by NASCAR but this is real news to me, especially since this deal was penned back in January of this year.

 

This could have been a lucrative deal for Robby if it panned out that's for sure, to the sum of about 5 million a year.

 

I don't know who to believe in this whole thing, Robby's side or GEM's.

 

I personally think there are 3 sides to this story; GEM's side, RGM's side, and the truth which will probably lie somewhere in the middle.

 

This is really the wrong time for Robby to be facing a lawsuit - like there really is a good time, but none-the-less.


Also, I think Robby is still in the middle of settling a lawsuit from his former sponsor in the failed Dakar Rally from earlier in the year.

 

What are your feelings about all of this?
