The Dover Coaster
The Dover roller coaster tried to take Red Bull Racing for a loop in today’s Cup qualifying, but the coaster couldn’t derail our COT's. Vickers lapped the track at 150.22 mph (24th), and Allmendinger at 149.67 mph lap (28th) - earning both drivers a spot in the show! Unfortunately, NASCAR rules state AJ will have to start from the 43rd spot. AJ was the 8th of the "go or go home" cars, which is a spot reserved for the provisional, or past champion. Bill Elliott didn't need the provisional, so that bumps AJ into the provisional spot. All these rules! The Bulls hit the track tomorrow for two rounds of practice in preparation for Sunday’s 400-mile race. The drivers say racing 400-miles at this track actually feels like racing 600-miles, but to BV, that’s a piece of cake. He drove 600-miles last weekend with no power steering, so to The Monster Mile, “Bring it on!” Expect good racing on Sunday at 1 PM (EST) on FOX because these stock cars are barreling down a multi-groove track, running high, low, or middle – just about anywhere they please.
