Two in the Show!

Well folks, today is a good day. Both Red Bulls got into Sunday's show. Brian put down a lap early on that held up to be 25th fastest. And then there was AJ, who at the second from last qualifying slot (49 out of 50), kept those in raceshop on the edge of their seats. Putting it into the wall on his qualifying run got a big gasp from the breakroom crowd, but AJ kept his foot on the pedal and registered a time good enough to be the final non-top 35 owner points qualifier. Crew chief Ricky Viers had to tell him to take care of his car at the end of his qualifying lap, cause you know AJ was looking for someone to hug inside his car. He qualified 35th, but will start 43rd because of crazy NASCAR rule, but that is moot. He's in the show, and may this date define the rest of his career. Mark it down! A good day indeed.

I had to come back and comment again, since the post had been added to since my original comment, that I just HAD to make as soon as AJ was in. ;)

I love the picture of the breakroom! You can tell how much they all have vested in their drivers! So sweet!

Okay, and I might like the Redbull cooler too. ;)
