!#$@%!&@#$!...

...was what was going through the minds of Red Bull Racing Team after yesterday's disappointing run at Richmond. This, is what our duo of drivers had to say about finishing 36th (BV) and 43rd (AJ):

Brian Vickers: "We were never as good as we needed to be to run with the fast cars. The car was really tight in the center for most of the day. Then with about 100 laps to go, we were penalized two laps for blowing a tire. I guess they made the incorrect assumption that I was trying to bring out a caution, but I wasn’t. I never came to a stop and went as fast as I could with the blown tire. The right front tire was riding on rims. That was a frustrating call for us. The car was the best it had been all day during the last 40 laps or so of the race. Unfortunately, it was too late in the race and we were never able to recover from the penalty.”

AJ Allmendinger: “I really can’t even think of one good thing to say about this day. We dropped two cylinders right at the start of the race and we spent almost 60 laps in the garage trying to fix it. We made a mistake in the pits too, which forced us to make some extra pit stops. That put us down even more laps. Even though we lost a lot of laps, we still thought we’d have a chance to gain some spots back if just a few cars dropped out. That, unfortunately, didn’t happen and we ran around in 43rd all race long. Overall, it was just a really bad day for us and that reflects in the points standings. We came into this race 31st in points, and we’re leaving 34th in points.”

Why do you think NASCAR has it out for BV or is it RBR or just Toyota?

So if they are looking for additional sponsors for Speed maybe they should contact BV's old sponsor, Fructis, and I am not trying to be funny or cute here. I am completely serious. I think that would be a good sponsor for them and he would probably be good for them.

I still think they should pursue a sponsor for BV rather than Scott if they are thinking full time. He's the most recognizable of the three with the most experience.

And my theory on why NASCAR has it out for BV revolves around some underage daughter of a high ranking NASCAR official. But that's just a theory. LOL

Maybe it's the red hair - redheads never get respect.

I thought it was funny to be honest.

Haha - sorry for the inappropriate humor. Didn't mean to offend anyone.

My point was that there was absolutely no rational explanation for any of the questionable calls that NASCAR has made with regard to Brian. So there has to be some sort of completely irrational and absurd reason for it.

I think RB can field the two cars OK, but there's no way that AJ doesn't deserve a shot in the #84 next year. His improvement is dramatic, and the team is starting to click now. Nothing against Scott, but open wheel drivers (montoya and others) have all come in and stuggled. Why start the trip over when you're halfway there. If a sponser is available for Scott, start a #82 third car!! Keep up the good work AJ and BV!!
