After running sixth in Friday morning’s Nationwide Series practice session at Richmond International Raceway, Brian Vickers qualified his No. 20 Dollar General Camry ninth for the ToyotaCare 250. Vickers’ DG Toyota started off loose in and loose off. A caution on lap 100 allowed for crew chief Kevin Kidd to bring the No. 20 car to pit road for the first pit stop of the night. With four new Goodyears, fuel, air pressure adjustments and a wedge adjustment, Vickers was 13th for the restart on lap 106. During the next green flag run, Vickers said that the changes helped with the handling of his racecar, but he still needed a little more. After a caution on lap 151, the Dollar General crew was able to make another four-tire stop and continue in the same direction with adjustments to Vickers’ Camry. He was positioned eighth when the field went back to green on lap 156. The car continued to improve. The yellow flag was back out on lap 189. The DG guys made one last round of adjustments and got Vickers back out on the track in sixth for the restart. The remainder of the race included a series of cautions, and Vickers was able to drive through the checkers with a fourth place finish – his third top-five finish and fourth top-10 finish of the 2013 season. Vickers advanced three positions to sixth in the Nationwide Series Championship point standings. In recognition of Vickers’ top-10 finish at Richmond International Raceway this weekend, a 10 percent discount on all online Dollar General purchases will be offered on Monday, April 29. Visit www.dollargeneral.com to take advantage of this exclusive offer. Brian Vickers’ Post Race Thoughts: “The guys did a great job making really good changes all night to make our Dollar General Toyota better. Our guys did an awesome job in the pits too – got us some good track position. We got a top-five out of it and it was a good points night. I’m happy with it considering where we started the race. Man, I just want to win one of these races.”
