Brian Vickers sure made a lot of people mad while being involved in five cautions during Sunday's Martinsville Speedway race.
So according to this interesting Red Bull Racing press release obtained by our satirist @nascarcasm, the team is making a move to "satisfy any lingering animosity" toward the organization.
The suspicious press release:
RED BULL RACING TEAM STATEMENT ... 10/31/11
We at Red Bull Racing Team are aware that following Sunday's Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway, some competitors in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series were upset with the actions of one of our drivers.
Therefore, Red Bull Racing Team has announced that little-known Sprint Cup driver Bruno Grégoire Étienne Vicqares from Grenoble, France will drive the No. 83 Red Bull Toyota for the remaining three races of the 2011 Sprint Cup season.
We hope this this personnel change will satisfy any lingering animosity you may have toward our organization, and more importantly, expel any desire any competitors may have to intentionally wreck the No. 83 car.
Mr. Vicqares is excited for his Cup debut next week at Texas Motor Speedway, and hopes his car is 'très bien.'
