Pocono Race Prep

Slow and steady progress was the theme for Red Bull Racing today at Pocono Raceway. Preparation was underway for tomorrow’s Pennsylvania 500 and Vickers and his crew were determined to put together a good race setup. Last time the team raced in Pocono, Vickers had his best starting spot of the year (9th), but couldn’t back it up in the race and finished 35th. The No. 83 was down on power in the straightaways, making it difficult to keep up with faster cars stalking him around the track. After today’s double practice sessions, it looks like the 83 Bull Crew is on to something. Vickers was 33rd in the first practice run, and moved all the way up to 17th in his second practice run. Just think if we had one more practice session to work with? Tune in to tomorrow’s race at 2 PM (EST).

Funny and true Mr. Negative, I think AJ should worry about his job, I like him but he's had a rough year so far, I think red bull should let Scott Speed drive the 84 car next year or maybe let them split the season. Worth a try. Good luck BV and TRB tomorrow.

I'm sorry, and just how many races has Scott Speed won? Go AJ, don't bring Scott over. Don't kid yourself, he is no JPM

Top 10! No, no - I still got hopes of an 83 win. BV can do it. And, we should keep AJ, he's done pretty good as a new driver with a new team. In the long run he'll be great for the team.

Scott Speed? You MUST be joking. NASCAR already has enough ego...it may explode with him. His career is over...too many personal issues, and his driving performance is subpar. Montoya was one of the better F1 drivers, is on an established team, has great equipment, and still hasn't won on an oval (though he is getting closer). Speed isn't going to have that benefit in his next ride. I'd rather have AJ than a driver that throws such tantrums that he makes Kyle Busch look mature.

Scott Speed - you have got to be kidding me. Exactly what has he done to deserve to have red bull give him another ride in anything. Y'all need to let AJ be. Where would you be if you were given one practice session a week to learn the track and get the car qualified. We are behind you AJ!!!
