Gordon can't afford to waive time
Gordon INDIANAPOLIS -- Robby Gordon barely won his first race Saturday.
He waited impatiently through a steady morning rain and long delay before qualifying for the Indianapolis 500. Then it was a scramble to race No. 2.
The frantic schedule did affect Gordon's qualifying run. He put himself in the field at 216.522 mph -- a slower four-lap average than he expected but one he had to accept because he was scheduled to be in Richmond, Va., for Saturday night's NASCAR race.
