Getting off the ground floor

My latest story on Brian Vickers for http://www.redbull.com:

Long shot doesn't even begin to describe Brian Vickers' chances of coming out on top of NASCAR's Chase for the Cup. Even if he were to win the last five Chase races, and led the most laps along the way, points leader Jimmie Johnson would have to finish 22nd or worse every time out for the No. 83 Red Bull Toyota driver to catch up.

And, with 10 other drivers between Vickers and Johnson in the Chase standings, even if the leader had a gigantic meltdown, odds are another car would take full advantage before the No. 83 made it into top spot.

"It's not very likely, but as far as I'm concerned, as long we're mathematically in it, we're in it. We're going to maintain that attitude for the rest of the year. Anything can happen," he said.

"Now, a lot is going to have to happen for us to get back in the hunt for the championship, but we're going to do our best: run as best as we can and finish as high as we can in the points. Where we finish is where we finish. Just enjoy it and try to learn something for next year."
