Testing for 600 Miles


Red Bull Racing Team enters the second day of testing at Lowe’s Motor Speedway, a crucial test considering teams are still trying to get a handle on medium-sized tracks.

Going fast is the goal, and AJ Allmendinger did just that in the No. 84 Red Bull Toyota, turning the second-fastest lap Monday at 184.150 mph. Brian Vickers, in the No. 83, was 27th at 181.068 mph. Both Red Bulls will tackle LMS in today’s afternoon session (1-5 p.m. ET) and the evening run (6-9 p.m.).

“We’re trying to learn as much as we can,” said Elton Sawyer, the team’s director of competition. “It’s a mile-and-a-half race track. There’s a lot of things we can learn over the next two weeks that can apply to other race tracks. You have to have a plan. If you go in there with no plan, you don’t get any results. We’re trying to push the envelope in testing.”

Keep it up BV and AJ! The hard work will eventually pay off for Team Red Bull. Team Red Bull's first Cup win is just right around the corner.

Found an article with quotes from BV about booing. Check it out: http://www.scenedaily.com/news/articles/sprintcupseries/Vickers_expects_more_boos_but_not_much_more_to_be_aimed_at_Busch.html
Hope RBR is learning a lot of great things to learn in the All-Star race next weekend. I'll be there, hopefully seeing both Toyota Camry's in the "Main Event". Good luck in Darlington!

WE BELIEVE!
