Cars just seem to be Argentina and Chile, so for some reason maybe Bolivia don't like him

Rubbie has sold his 2 Hummmmmmmbuggys and all of his support vehicles to a Saudi guy with Cubic mega bucks. Unless he makes enough money off of his Stadium Super Truck races to pay for an entire new Dakar program, he won't be back.

So does that mean he's pretty much done racing except as a hobby? You know he could still kick ass in Cup if he had the team and was only the driver...

Maybe we'll get to see him in the two road course events. He was always a force on them, even with a weak car. On a road course, I'd take Robbie over Jeff Gordon any day. And Jeff is always fast.

Done racing all of that ghey arsed roundy-round foolishness. He's over whelmed with his Stadium Super Truck series and trying to be the next Mickey Thompson (his own words). He is still racing select off road races (SCORE & BITD).

A Dakar without Robby wouldn't be the same any more.

A fan favorite for some, a distraction from the race for others
