Destination: Daytona 500


Moments from now, Red Bull Racing Team’s two transporters will creep through the gate and down Knob Hill Road toward Interstate 77, the first few feet in the long journey that is Speedweeks at Daytona.

These trucks are carrying important passengers, too. Let us introduce the cars that you’ll come to know and love between now and the Feb. 17 Daytona 500.

Aboard the No. 83 rests RBRT041 and RBRT049, the prior serving as Brian Vickers’ primary car entering Saturday’s two practice sessions and Sunday’s qualifying. RBRT041 stands a tad under four and a half feet tall and weighs 3,450 pounds. At the top of its list of hobbies is “driving fast,” which it did last month during testing at Daytona with the fourth-fastest lap in single-car runs.

The No. 84 is carrying RBRT050 and RBRT048. AJ Allmendinger’s primary car was also fast last month and owns the same physical traits as his teammate’s ride, but there’s something else about this machine. Maybe that it’s chassis No. 50, and this is the 50th running of the Daytona 500.

First on-track action: Two hours of practice beginning at 10:30 a.m. ET Saturday.

Please tell me they are going to make short sleeve race shirts of this uniform like they have for the F1 Red Bull teams so I don't have to wear a F1 shirt to a NASCAR race!
