Vickers what a cheap shot to get a win. I would have been ashamed to claim it. Why did none of your teammates or mr.H come by for congratulations?????
I am glad your going to Red Bull.Maybe they will take the bull by the horn.........In my book you
suck........

I hope Jimmie Johnson comes and kicks Vicker's ass for what he did. You know why because his teammates can't stand him.

Junior needs to put this loss behind him and not lose focus. I know its a hard defeat but, keep focused on the prize. with only 100 and some change points down, its still very posible to win the cup at this point.3 drivers out and atlanta coming on the 29th. Atlanta is his best chance for a win.

He spins his own team mate.
He takes out two chasers.
In post race interview says Junior tried to block Jimmie, thats why he ran into the back of the 48.
I call BU[[SHYTE!
Replay clearly shows Junior moving over.
He's making excuses for his own inept driving.

He should have been ashamed to pull into victory lane.

AND THOSE SUNGLASSES ARE GAY!

Brian Vickers should stay on the team with Gordon and Johnson.... cause he's as dirty as they are. He should be stripped of this win and banned from racing the rest of the season. He's not in contention for the Cup and he ruined the chances of the best car on the track today. Junior is just playing it cool right now..... just wait, Vickers... your day is coming and the #8 will be there!!!!!!!!!!

Vickers is a dumass. There is no "I or Vickers" in Team. The regular season races - be as much as an individual as you want. But the chase races - should be a total team effort for the ones in the chase! Hendricks ought to release the Vucker to red-bull now and put another driver in his car.

Don't defend this little punk... he's as dirty as your 24 & 48 sissy's. Maybe they should all date each other........ it would be the dirtiest 3-way in history.

You have NO clue. Do you realize that Jr. would have been 3rd in points had he won this race. Yeah, he didn't show he was upset on camera, but I gaurantee you that he is pissed at this little cheat. Vickers' day is coming..... just like his little buddies 48 & 24.
