TALLADEGA, Ala. - Michael Waltrip continues to target Brian Vickers as the driver of the No. 55 Toyota next season in the Sprint Cup Series.

Vickers currently races in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Joe Gibbs Racing and has held a part-time role in MWR's No. 55 for the past two seasons. 

"We think that Brian is a future champion of the Cup Series so we want Brian to drive it and we want Aaron’s to sponsor it," Waltrip said. "That’s the news and that’s where it’s at. I think both Aaron’s and Brian are very into making that happen. It would just be a matter of getting the details worked out in order to be able to announce it soon. So, when it happens it won’t be a surprise because that’s what we’re after."
