Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Michael Waltrip Racing | Brian Vickers done this year

Michael Waltrip Racing driver Brian Vickers (calf) will miss the rest of the Sprint Cup season due to a blood clot in his right calf. He was put on blood-thinning medication that will keep him from racing. Vickers also missed the final 25 races in 2010 with blood clots that required surgery. "If there's anything to be positive about with today's news it's that this is only a temporary setback," Vickers said. "The timing for this is never good, but I'm glad we'll get it out of the way now and be ready to run for a championship with the Aaron's Dream Machine in 2014."
