  • Robby Gordon’s parents?

    Did anything ever eventually come out as to what happened to Robby Gordon’s parents several years ago when they were found dead at home? (They would be RHR’s in-laws as well.) No details were known at the time.
    I remember watching his dad race in the Mickey Thompson stadium off-road events in the buggy class and he was typically one of the top contenders. Also knew some guys who raced with Robby on mini MX bikes when they were kids.

      Thanks for the article and additional info. Still don’t know the “why” as the article reported they appeared to be a happy couple and no mention of illness.
      When bizarre actions like that come out of the blue, one might suspect CTE, especially when it’s a person who participated in a sport where concussions could be numerous over a long career. It’s already happened to a former BMX star and a motocross racer where they took their own lives and later were found to have CTE. Just speculation of course on this case.
