Tim’s Trained Eye


AJ Allmendinger’s spotter, former driver Tim Fedewa, admitted he sometimes got lost in the blur of Red Bull blue.

Being AJ’s second set of eyes requires that Fedewa be perched high atop something, usually a press box or corporate suites, and from there it’s tough to tell who’s who when both cars are blue. And it’s not like every track is the size of tiny Martinsville.

“At times, you had to really stay on top of it,” Fedewa said. “You couldn’t take your focus away from your respective car. I just couldn’t take my eyes off AJ, especially when Brian was around. When you go back, your focal point is a blue car with some yellow trim. You couldn’t tell. There’s two of them.”

Not anymore. AJ’s No. 84 will be silver the rest of the way.

“Fedewa will finally be able to see,” AJ joked. “He’s getting old. He’s getting up there in age and his eyes are starting to go.”

Listen to Tim talk about it in our audio section at www.redbullracingusa.com.

Ok! I have a question. I was reading the Red Bull Racing Preview for Talladega. In it it says BV is racing in the Nationwide race in the #32. Well, I just looked at the Nationwide Entry list and it has Denny Hamlin in the #32. Which one is right? I'm going to the race,and want to make sure I cheer EXTRA loud for BV>

I believe it's wrong. it's not listed on brianvickers.com. but I wouldn't mind if they put BV in the #32 this weekend.

I just looked at braunracing.com and they have Hamlin in the car, so I am going with that. Also, I am very jealous that you are going to Talladega with weekend!!!

Brian is NOT in the No. 32 this weekend. His next Nationwide race is May 24 at Charlotte. Bull Rider swings and misses on that one.

AJ finished 5th in the 2006 truck race at Talladega. He can do it.

TrackPass is free on nascar.com this weekend :)

That was for the fall October race, and wasn't announced until the middle of the summer. Hopefully it will be. I had a blast last year!
