Queen to Cup Race?

Or so goes the rumor around the NASCAR paddock…Queen Elizabeth arrived in Richmond yesterday to mark the 400th anniversary of Jamestown (America’s first permanent colony for the non-history buffs out there). The Red Bull Racing crew landed at the private airport just moments before the Queen herself. We thought the heavy security, cops stationed every mile down the I-64, and the road blocks downtown were for our arrival - our mistake! The Queen is jetting over to the Kentucky Derby tomorrow morning and Richard “The King” Petty is getting the honor of meeting her, so she must be a NASCAR fan, right? Maybe she’ll stop by the Jim Stewart 400 tomorrow night. We’d even let her sit on top our pit box.

Please, please could we all see some pictures of the guys in the Pit Crew? It seems this website has pictures of just about everyone on the team with the exception of the pit guys (especially Brian’s pit crew). Remember, Mr. System Administrator…. There’s no “I” in team

Thanks A Bunch!
P.S. Pictures of the Queen??? Really???

I think we need pictures of all the RedBull Shop, then we could see who all works there! Have a site where we could go to look up the crews or office people. Let them have some lime light. The picture of the Queen is nice also!! Awesome job today so far, keep up the good work tonight!!

What is going on with the 83 and the COT? If we could just get the 83 running like the 84 with the COT, and the 84 running like the 83 in non-COT races, Red Bull Racing would be unbeatable. This is so frustrating to watch.

I'll be there at Charlotte though to see Vickers go for the $1,000,000.

Keep going guys, we believe in you.

I know this is an impound race but why not just put the car in qualifying trim, make the race, change to race trim and start in the back? Good luck next week Brian.

I dont understand why the 83 was suppost to go out 26th for qualifying but it went out later...did they pull the car out of the line up to do something to it...and why did Brian run 20th in practice and 35th in qualifying..this is so frustrating but Im not giving up on this team I still beleive in it and I am still proud to be a fan of you guys....GOOD JOB AJ!!!

Somebody really needs to explain what happened. they were late for lineup. and qualifyed OUT OF THE RACE. I keep hoping for a better week, i know bv can drive, i know the crew does their job, are they changing the setup on the car before qualifying. he wasnt bad in practice. I agree with little miss sunshine. i have seen pictures of the 84 crew. and a couple of pictures of the 83 during a stop.
i was hoping the guys would get to practice before the challenge. anyway, i wish them the best of luck.

The tv said the Brian was put on the 5 minute clock but never said why. It looked like several cars were slow getting through inspection so that might have been it but I don't know what really happened.

Can anyone give us an update on Brian's run? What did they change? It looked like he was way to loose in the middle of 1 and 2 on his last lap. Just keep working at it guys I know your guys probably feel like shit right now but keep your heads up you will get there.

I didn't get to watch qualifying and I just checked and saw BV didn't make the race-so disappointed about that. But of course not nearly as disappointed as I'm sure the team is.

But congrats to AJ and the 84 team making the show, and doing an awesome job. I will definitely be cheering on those guys this weekend.

Way to go AJ and the 84 team on making the race. Stinks that 6 100ths of a second can determine weither you are in the race or not. Better luck next weekend Brian!

I read an article about David Green helping HMS with the COT, is there a reason why he is not helping Team Red Bull?
