Robby Gordon and 2012 Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8® secure second place in 2011 Bullrun.
Last week, accomplished driver Robby Gordon embarked on the famed 2011 Bullrun Rally in the all-new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Stretching from Las Vegas to Miami, cars and drivers alike are put through their paces in the 8-day rally. Despite its intensity, Robby completed the race in second place overall.
Surrounded by a field of high-dollar sports cars, Robby’s ride fit right in. The SRT8’s new 6.4L V-8 HEMI® sends no less than 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque to each corner. When Robby’s right foot isn’t pressed flat on the floor, Fuel Saver Technology deactivates four cylinders improving highway fuel economy by as much as 13 percent over the previous generation model.
Competing in a field of 100 cars, Robby consistently finished near the top ten through each leg of the race. His performance is a true testament to the 2012 Jeep SRT8’s abilities and robust components. Head over to Robby’s site for a full rundown of the rally.http://www.speedenergy.com
