They Keep Going and Going
Red Bull Racing Team’s No. 83 clicked off 232 laps during January’s test session at Daytona. The No. 84 was on track for 265 laps. Between the two Red Bulls, that’s 1,242.5 miles worth of single-lap runs and drafting.
Onto Las Vegas, where the No. 83 — give or take a few — put in 167 laps of work. The counter went to about 188 for the No. 84. That’s another 532.5 miles at an intermediate track, and more than 600 miles can be expected to come out of California tonight when preseason testing wraps up. For California speeds, click here.
Preparations are just about over. Next week, it’s for real. Brian Vickers and AJ Allmendinger take to the track Feb. 9 at 10:30 a.m. ET for the first of two practices before Daytona 500 qualifying (Feb. 10, 1:15 p.m. ET).
