NOT – Brian Vickers

Heading into Dover last weekend Brian Vickers found himself inside of the top-10 in the point standings. Although he hasn’t won a race this season, Vickers has been impressive. In recent weeks Vickers has been much more consistent and has had some nice top-five and top-10 finishes to show for it. Unfortunately Vickers got caught up in some early troubles in Dover on Sunday which led to him finishing the race in the 43rd position. The last place finish dropped him to 13th in the point standings and more importantly killed some of the nice momentum that he and his team had built up over the past couple of weeks. Vickers will have the task of trying to get some of that momentum back this weekend at Pocono.
