• Joe Gibbs Racing driver Brian Vickers started out strong on race day at Charlotte Motor Speedway by securing a third place starting spot for the Nationwide Series History 300. By lap 16 of the 200 lap event, Vickers had moved into second behind his teammate Kyle Busch. • The first of seven caution flags came out on lap 40. Vickers reported that his Dollar General Toyota was tight in the center and off. Crew chief Kevin Kidd called for a four-tire change, fuel and adjustments to help free up the race car. Vickers was second off of pit road and the field went back to green on lap 44. • During the next green flag run, Vickers radioed in that the car was consistent but still a little tight. A caution on lap 86 allowed for Kidd to bring the car back to pit road for four tires, fuel and more chassis adjustments. The No. 20 Dollar General crew gained a spot on their No. 54 teammates on pit road, placing Vickers in the lead on the lap 91 restart. He led the field for a total of three laps before moving back into second behind Busch. • At the halfway mark, Vickers was still in second. Green flag stops began with 70 laps to go. Vickers came to pit road under green on lap 137 and was positioned fourth when the next caution came out on lap 152. He radioed in that he felt a vibration in the car following the previous pit stop. • Not wanting to risk continuing the race with a problem, Kidd brought Vickers to pit road for a thorough check to make sure all of the lug nuts were secure. The No. 20 DG Toyota restarted 15th on lap 157, and a few laps into the run, Vickers reported that the vibration was gone. • The team made their final pit stop of the day under yellow on lap 169. Vickers was in the 16th spot for the restart. Throughout the remaining 28 laps, Vickers did his best to weave his way into an 11th place finish. He still remains fifth in the Nationwide Series Championship point standings before the series’ next event at Dover International Speedway on Saturday, June 1.
