BV was snake bit at the Brickyard 400 today. For some reason, a car that had run great all day, just did not want to make the left hand turn into the first corner on the final restart of the race. This caused him to lose several positions and cross the yard of bricks in 19th spot. Not the finiah that he and the MWR Aarons Dream Machine Toyota Team had wanted after the No. 55 ran in the top ten, and a lot of time, in the top five all race long. The over the wall crew with Billy Scott calling the shots from atop the pit box did great work, even when tire startegies played out amongst many of the front running cars.
A dejected Vickers spoke of how this finish was after the race. “That’s so disappointing. We had a good car all day especially on long runs but just needed some track position. We were in good shape running eighth with less than 20 laps to go. I went into turn one on the restart and it just took off. Everyone on the Aaron’s Dream Machine deserved so much better today.”
Now it is on to the triangle at Pocono- where one of the three turns is designed, like Indianapolis.
