Ahh ... a Week of Rest (Sort Of)

Want to get away?

Red Bull Racing Team sure does, especially after the flat performance at the flat track in Phoenix on Saturday night.

Most Sprint Cup drivers fall off the grid during an off week, so don’t expect to hear much out of Brian Vickers and AJ Allmendinger this week because things will be quiet until the two crank up their Red Bull Toyotas on April 25 at Talladega. Mike Skinner, however, will be racing. After spending a few days in NoCal’s wine country, Skinner will attempt to defend his title in the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race in Long Beach, Calif.

As for the Subway Fresh Fit 500, Vickers’ No. 83 improved eight positions from 33rd to 25th. Skinner, in his last run in the No. 84, lost three spots from 25th to 28th.

Vickers sits 19th in points — only 81 points out of the top 12. After five races out of the No. 84, the driver standings are lost on Allmendinger, but owner points aren’t. The No. 84 is 111 points out of the top 35 as Allmendinger returns to his ride at Talladega.

Hopefully everyone has a nice and relaxing week off. They all deserve it! Talladega is just around the corner, and I can't wait. Here's hoping we see the 84 in the show.

A.J. is only 111 points out of 35, 1 or 2 good runs should put him in. Looking forward to two Bulls in the show soon!!

Yeah ok AMZY...the only reason that car is even close is because of Skinner, not your little boy AJ.
