Busch Series Edit

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.

Her next race was her best career outing. She drove the #22 Bost Motorsports Chevy in the 2003 race at Talladega Superspeedway. Starting 38th, Tina was able to avoid a massive pileup on lap 4. From there, Tina drove home to a 10th-place finish, completing all but one lap.

In 2004, Tina made another start at Talladega, this time driving the #10 Sticks N Stuff Chevy for Davis Motorsports. After starting 42nd, Tina hung in the race and finished 28th. For the rest of 2004, with sponsorship from Vassarette and Microtel, Tina secured the #39 Jay Robinson ride for the second half of 2004. Her first start for JRR was at Daytona International Speedway, where she finished 32nd. Tina made 10 of her next 11 attempts before she did not qualify for five of her last six, which led to her release. Her best run with the team was a 26th at Pikes Peak and her best start was a 30th at Darlington.

Gordon has not raced in the series since.

Craftsman Truck Series Edit

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.

In 2004, Tina transferred over to the #13 ThorSport Motorsports Chevy, with sponsorship from Microtel and Vassarette. However, the deal quickly headed south and she only was able to run 5 races. 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. However, she was able to race in the next race at Martinsville. Tina was able to set a career best starting position in 2004 of 13th at Charlotte and Daytona.

Tina Gordon has not raced since.
