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.
