    Vickers needs extra security at Charlotte's Lowes Motor Speedway

    I just heard on our local news that Brian Vickers is going to be getting security escorts into and out of Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte this week because of the extremely HIGH number of angry JR fans that have called the track since Sunday....YES, it's only MONDAY NIGHT and there have already been such a HIGH number of angry fans calling the track that they feel that Vickers is IN DANGER and needs extra security...LOL...YA THINK??? A LIL BIT of a hometown crowd there for this Sat Nite's race I wouldn't be surprised if SOMETHING happens to Vickers this week & it's NOT Jr doing it...afterall, he's got friends NOT in the chase When I'm not feeling so lazy, I'll find a link to an article about the added securty, b/c I"m sure that there will be at least ONE out there....probably on NASCAR.COM already....

    I nearly spit out my Banquet pot pie when Brian Vickers swore he didn't wreck people for victories.
    The ending of the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega was far from funny. That is, until Brian Vickers opened his mouth.
    Then it got pretty good.

    Basically, Vickers stated that he didn't have much of a reputation for taking people out merely to get the win.
    I briefly thought about getting Mike Bliss' comment on that statement, but I figured he wasn't around. Then I remembered he had just been hired to drive for BAM Racing. By the time that realization kicked in, it was time for Desperate Housewives.
    Even though Bliss probably doesn't have a private plane, he was long gone, probably because he didn't want to miss Desperate Housewives. Not that I can blame him. It's a pretty good show from what I have read.
    I honestly believe two things: Vickers deliberately meant to wreck Bliss to win the 2005 Nextel Open; Vickers didn't mean to wreck Jimmie Johnson last Sunday at Talladega.
    For one thing: Chad Knaus was right. Vickers doesn't have enough talent to take out two cars. In all actuality, no one does. How could Vickers know that his hit on Jimmie Johnson would take out Dale Earnhardt Jr. as well?
    He couldn't. He was trying to bump-draft Johnson so he could get a run of his own heading out of Turn 4. It almost worked. Instead, Vickers won.
    It is sad that Vickers couldn't enjoy the win. It was an accident, a fluke, a win similar to Bobby Labonte at Homestead in 2003, when he won after a last-lap blown tire by Bill Elliott.
    In other words, it was still a win, and no one noticed that it had been three years since the No. 25 Chevrolet had won.
    Sad.
    I have to wonder, though, when Vickers will get an honest chance for Victory No. 2. Talladega has a history of producing unlikely winners, a couple of whom (Phil Parsons, Jimmy Spencer) can be seen sharing their opinions on television these days.
    Come to think of it, Vickers does, too.



    BULL CRAP
