Michael Waltrip Racing | Brian Vickers brings it home in second
Michael Waltrip Racing driver Brian Vickers posted a runner-up finish at the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway Sunday, July 6. He was frustrated that NASCAR made the call to end the rain-shortened race. "Knowing that we weren't even supposed to start the race last night until 7 p.m., I was shocked that we called it at 2-something in the afternoon," Vickers said. "I know a lot of fans turned into the TV and stuck around at the racetrack waiting to see a finish, and I was expecting them to wait a little bit longer knowing that we have lights here and it was going to be a night race anyway."
Fantasy Tip: Despite his disappointment with the call of the race, he still turned in his third Top 5 of the season, and best result of the year. He is now 16th in the overall points standings, and has re-emerged as a solid fantasy option at most tracks.
