Busch Series

Tina Gordon made her Busch Series debut in September 2001 at Darlington Raceway. She drove a locally based #96 Colby Furniture Chevrolet into the field with a 42nd starting position. However, without full sponsorship, the team decided to start and park, finishing last (43rd) after only competing one lap.

Craftsman Truck Series

Tina entered 2003 with the intent to run for NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Rookie of the Year. She ran for the #31 Brevak Racing team with limited sponsorship from Scotch and Microtel. However, the team did not qualify for all its races and Tina only completed 11 races before sponsorship ended her run. However, Tina did well in those starts. She finished 13th at Charlotte and at Nashville and finished in the top-20 three other times. Despite limited racing, Tina finished 25th in points.

The best run was 24th at Daytona in the season opener. In the next race at Atlanta, Tina Gordon's Chevy was involved with a heavy wreck with Rick Crawford, leading to minor injures for Gordon.

ARCA RE/MAX Series

Tina debuted in ARCA on October 20, 2001 at the Food World 300 held at the Talladega Superspeedway driving the #22 Sticks 'N' Stuff Furniture Ford. She qualified 5th and finished 10th just behind later NASCAR Nextel Cup regular Casey Mears.


In 2002 Tina competed in four ARCA races, two driving the #66 Sticks 'N' Stuff Ford (finishing 26th and 12th respectively at Daytona International Speedway and then back at Talladega) and two driving the #66 3M Post-it Note Ford (finishing 8th and 35th respectively at Atlanta and Lowe's Motor Speedways).


Without having any knowledge of Tina Gordon's future plans, it must still be said a return by her to competing in the ARCA RE/MAX Series must be considered highly unlikely as drivers who have moved up to any of the NASCAR series rarely come back to ARCA racing.


Sticks 'N' Stuff involvement

Despite no longer driving the Sticks 'N' Stuff-sponsored race car, Gordon continues to appear in the chain's television commercials announcing current specials. In earlier ads, she was captioned as "NASCAR Driver" and "Sticks 'N' Stuff Driver", but as of September 2007, the television ads no longer identify her as Tina Gordon and make no acknowledgement of her racing career.
