Momentum

Momentum is just what Red Bull Racing needs to finish off the year strong. And it is also just what the #83 and #84 teams seems to be getting at the right time.

Tonight marks the 2nd week in a row that the two Red Bull cars will race together, and also the 2nd week in a row they will start side by side. Tonight AJ rolls off the grid in the 27th spot, and Brian in the 28th spot.

The goals each team has for the end of the season are straight forward. The #83 is trying to get into the top 35 in owner's points so they can have a guaranteed spot in the race each week. They must overtake the #10 and #22.

For the #84 team, they are trying to move up into the top 43 in owner's points so they can be guaranteed a spot in the field in case of a rain-out. Right now the #84 must overtake the #49 and #55 to reach their goal. Tonight's race should be a good points night - the #55 did not qualify for the race and #49 will roll off the grid in the 43rd spot.

Tune into ABC tonight at 7:30 pm to see the Red Bull cars in action at RIR!

Sorry I couldn't post out of the race, I was driving back from a college football game.

Vickers did just what he needed to do...stay out of trouble, and stay on the lead lap. Who would have thought Johnny Sauter would have a run like that? Wow. However, Vickers still maintained with the #45 car and gained points on the #10, #21, and #22. TRB has to get these COT cars more competitive. I know they are working on it, but the car wasn't good after 10 laps. The pit crew was awesome all night, picking up spots. AJ also did well. He's really starting to get some momentum.

Good job with the teams just staying with it last night - i know the 84 team was really struggling with the car during the whole race, but you stayed out of trouble and brought it home in a respectable position. AJ has really come along the last 3 races since they have him racing the series the day before. He will only get better!
