Top Ten Things Brian Vickers DIDN’T Run Into at Martinsville

Jeff Meyer · Wednesday November 2, 2011


Brian Vickers turned into a wrecking ball all afternoon in Martinsville – so much so that the list of things he DIDN’T run into was short enough to “fit” inside our weekly top 10.

10. The open space between other cars.

9. An offer of discounted rates on insurance – especially after installing Progressive’s Snapshot Discount device given to him by some chick named Flo.

8. An offer of a 2012 ride by any other team — even bad ones.

7. Victory Lane.

6. An offer of sponsorship by Manischewitz after it was explained to him the name was not pronounced Manychevyhits.

5. An up ‘til now undiscovered degree of talent.

4. Unfortunately for everyone else, a black flag.

3. A sense that maybe HE was the problem.

2. An encouraging word or friendly face amongst his colleagues.

1. The rear end of the No. 48 car, as instructed by Chad Knaus.

Vickers got all of his “Kyle Busch imitations” out of the way all in one race. Takes Busch a season to wreck that many.
