Vickers To Team Red Bull

29054Jpg
Brian Vickers will join Toyota's new Team Red Bull operation for the 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series season where he'll pilot a No. 83 Camry for the new group with teammates yet to be announced.

Vickers confirmed the announcement with the Associated Press Sunday night after his 14th place finish in the Dodge/SaveMart 350 at Infineon Raceway.

"I hope this makes us -- me and Team Red Bull -- champions," Vickers told the AP.

"The rest of the stuff takes care of itself. I know that there are going to be a lot of opportunities for me through Red Bull, but all of that is just a bonus. I am going into this deal for the sheer competition."

Vickers asked to be released from his Hendrick Motorsports contract nearly two weeks ago with Casey mears quickly named as his replacement in the No. 25 GMAC Chevrolet for next season.

After winning the Busch Series title for Hendrick, Vickers has been in the Cup Series for three years. Despite not having a NEXTEL Cup win on his resume, Team Red Bull was anxious to bring the young driver to the new operation.

"Brian brings not only youth, but also championship credentials to the Red Bull seat," general manager Marty Gaunt said. "More importantly, he shares the same vision held by Team Red Bull and he becomes a key building block in the foundation of our team."
