Round Two in Season No. 1

NASCAR is all about numbers, and this weekend’s 400-mile race at Daytona International Speedway marks the halfway point in Red Bull Racing’s first season in Nextel Cup. So for those that are starving, here are a few numbers to digest.
- No Toyota has finished higher than the Red Bull driven by Brian Vickers, who ran fifth in NASCAR’s longest race in May at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. He led 76 laps in the 600.
- Vickers owns four top-15 finishes. His first finish in the No. 83 was a top 10 at California.
- Rookie AJ Allmendinger qualified for six consecutive races, from May’s race at Richmond to last month’s event at Michigan.
- Allmendinger placed his No. 84 in the 13th starting position at Richmond.

It's good to see out of pretty much all of the go or go home guys (excluding Blaney or Riggs on occasion) that the 83 car is pretty competitive during the races he makes. That was one of the most frustrating things about Loudon was knowing that Vickers could have possibly ran top 15 while Chaffin was just gonna run around in 40th.

As long as Vickers stays competitive in the races he makes, it won't be long until he's in the top 35. As for AJ, he's learning the ropes this season and as he continues to make races, he'll continue to learn and improve as a driver. I've been impressed with some of the races he's made this year. Here's to a great 2nd half.

Been non stop rain down here the last few days and looks to continue-which would be great for the #83 if qualifying gets washed out.

I totally agree with EVERYBODY! Team Red Bull is doing great for a first season! Being competitive is so important in Nascar and it's AWESOME to know that we don't have wishy-washy teams and drivers! WE HAVE THE BEST GUYS IN THE NASCAR GARAGE!!!!

Fun fact I heard on MRN during the Loudon race: Brian and John Andretti are the only 2 drivers, who have raced more than two races this season, that have NOT had a pit road penalty given by Nascar. <---not sure where to find it, but that's what they guys on the radio said.

I am so excited about Daytona! Brian had such a strong 'Dega car, I know they can make it and run WELL! Good Luck boys!!!! We're behind ya ALL THE WAY!!!!

brian did have a strong talladega car...he qualified 21st yet he didnt make the race..lets hope Aj and Brian are the only ones with the strong daytona cars...I beleive they can make the race..I have a very good feeling....and its suppost to rain and that would mean brian would be automatically in the field because he is the only go or go homer to have won a race so thats a plus...and he has the championship provisional for the busch race

Actually BV is going out 10th for qualifying, and AJ is going out 37th for qualifying. Yes, new paint stripes at all. Kind of a blue lightening bolt thing.

About the paint schemes...I think I've actually seen this one before. I can't remember where, but it looks familiar.
I really don't today's scheme. I thought the last edition was the best. The car is so identifiable with all those yellow effects. This one is just sort of Blaaahh. Please leave the COT cars the way they are. I dig the red wheels!
