Oh...To Be 20 Again

STRAIGHT FROM TODAY'S PRESS RELEASE...

At the ripe age of 20, Brian Vickers became the youngest-ever NASCAR title holder in winning the 2003 NASCAR Busch Series driver’s championship. Likewise at 20, Doug Richert became the youngest crew chief to win NASCAR’s elite Cup Series championship back in 1980, the first of Dale Earnhardt’s seven titles.

As of today, Brian and Doug now have something else in common. Together they’ll make up the driver-crew chief tandem for Team Red Bull’s No. 83 Camry entry in the 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series.

DOUG RICHERT – No. 83 Crew Chief
“The Cup series has gotten so much more competitive these days. Starting from scratch is no easy task, but once the team gets some chemistry and momentum going, we’ll hopefully be able to do some exciting things.”

BRIAN VICKERS – No. 83 Driver
“Doug has worked with practically a Who’s Who list of drivers in this sport and he knows what it takes to be consistently successful at this level. What an awesome feeling to know he’s in my garage now.”
