It's Sweet Virginia for Vickers

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

After five frustrating races where anything that could go wrong did, Brian Vickers' Twitter feed said it all: "Not bad. Was in the top five for a bit. Much better than the past few weeks. We will take it…"

Maybe it was having his 26th birthday on the eve of the Martinsville race. Perhaps it was the simple fact that a guy just can't have that much bad luck. Whatever it was, something actually went Vickers' way in a Chase race.

He started 24th in the Tums Fast Relief 500 and drove a trouble-free race to move up 13 spots to 11th at the chequered flag, a banner day considering the horrible luck the No. 83 Red Bull Toyota driver has experienced so far in his first Chase for the Cup. "I don't know what it is, I can't explain it, I can't figure it out," he said. "But our luck definitely turned on us once the Chase started."
