Brian Vickers Joins NBC for NASCAR Coverage

While he may not be on track due to recurring blood clots, Brian Vickers has found a way to stay in NASCAR.

Vickers tweeted out on Monday that he will join NBC for the network’s NASCAR coverage beginning today with an appearance on “NASCAR America,” NBC Sports Network’s nightly show covering the sport. Vickers plans to participate in the Tuesday and Wednesday editions of the show as well.

Vickers, a three-time winner in the Sprint Cup Series, has been sidelined from his No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota since March because of the blood clots. It’s the third time Vickers has missed races due to clots. The 31-year-old driver made two starts earlier this season at Las Vegas and Phoenix, scoring a best result of 15th at Las Vegas. David Ragan is currently filling in for Vickers at MWR. Team owner Michael Waltrip and Brett Moffitt have also driven the No. 55 this season.

NBC’s coverage of Sprint Cup Series races will begin on July 5, when the network airs the Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola from Daytona International Speedway (NBC, 7:45 p.m. ET).
