Twin Tracks, Sister Speedways

Michigan International Speedway easily could be mistaken for California Speedway. Place the two Nextel Cup sister tracks side by side, and they’re about as identifiable as the Olsen twins.
Red Bull Racing’s first statistic of note came at California when Brian Vickers drove the No. 83 to a 10th-place finish in February’s Auto Club 500. That was the team’s first race ever, so there’s a reason Red Bull Racing is sticking its chest out a bit entering this weekend. Most of what was discovered at California can be applied to Michigan, not to mention Brian has four top-10 starts and two top-10 finishes there.
Slowly, Red Bull Racing is on the rise. AJ Allmendinger’s No. 84 has made five races in a row and, after Pocono, climbed one spot in the owner standings to 46th. Brian has competed in four-straight events, and the No. 83 sits 38th — only 165 points short of the elusive top-35 cutoff that guarantees a spot in the race.

I'm having the same problem with the Pocono video and audio. I'm glad that's not only my computer.

I'm having the same video problems, too. I'm sure TRB will have it fixed soon. I love watching the weekly videos!

Best of luck to Brian and AJ this weekend! Go get 'em!
