Armstrong Tabs Gordon For Full Silver Crown Slate

INDIANAPOLIS – Eric Gordon, a veteran of 141 USAC Silver Crown Series starts over his three-decade career, plans to contest the full Silver Crown schedule this year in the Brad and Tara Armstrong-owned No. Gordon’s start total in Silver Crown competition ranks ninth all-time, 16 of which have come with the Armstrong team between 2018 and 2020. Gordon and Brad Armstrong have a bond closer than most driver and owner relationships. Gordon began helping his son, Jake, get started in his racing career during that time, and when Gordon got the bug to race again following a six-year absence with the Silver Crown cars between 2012 and ’18, Armstrong was there to help make that dream a reality. Gordon and Armstrong also share another attribute as both being USAC National Sprint Car winners as drivers. “I’ll have my 20-year-old son, Jake, and he’ll pretty much be the crew chief of the dirt Silver Crown car,” Gordon said.
