I like Brian Vickers, a lot actually, (since his rookie year) but this was not a positive race for him (not even including the fact that he tore his race car to bits). He influenced the outcome of the race. Out of 18 cautions, Brian was involved in 5. Two drivers attempted payback against him. And what might be the worst, he cost his good friend Jimmie Johnson a win in order to get his own attempt at retribution.
In the words of Ricky Craven, “Forty-three cars started this race and I think Brian Vickers hit half of them.” Not many people are leaving Martinsville impressed with the 83.
