SPOT FOR SALE? YAHOO SPORTS' Jay Busbee reported Robby Gordon after racing his way into the Daytona 500 Thursday during the Gatorade Duels "offered his spot in the race" to Michael Waltrip's No. 40 Aaron's Toyota. Gordon during a press conference "conceded that his team was facing tough economic times." He said, "We're in a bad state right here. It's tough. It's really, really tough." He later said in the garage, "Everything's for sale!" NASCAR Senior Dir of Communications for Competition Kerry Tharp said that he "couldn't recall a similar incident where an owner sold his spot to another driver, but agreed that it was doable in theory." A Waltrip spokesperson indicated there were "no plans for this at the moment" (, 2/23).
