Martinsville Mishap

Mon Oct 27, 2014

No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine driver Brian Vickers finished 27th in Sunday’s 500-lap NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver started 17th and held that position until lap 160 when Kasey Kahne made contact with the No. 55 sending it spinning and off the lead lap. Vickers returned to the lead lap on lap 189 by taking the wave around, but suffered damage in an on-track collision a few laps later, requiring him to pit to remove the hood. Vickers could not overcome the four laps lost to the leaders during the repairs despite running impressive lap times in the second half of the race. The No. 55 Aaron’s team returns to action Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.

The team will also head west this weekend before Texas for a 2015 Goodyear Tire Test. Brian along with a few other teams in the Sprint Cup Series will test next years rules and tire package at the Auto Club Speedway on Tuesday. The test will be from 9AM- 5PM and fans can enter the infield for free if you have a 2015 Auto Club 400 ticket- or with a $10 donation per vehicle. You will be able to watch from the pit terrace infield suite sections.
