Vickers making the most of his second chance


Brian Vickers is scheduled to make one more start this year in Michael Waltrip’s No. 55 Toyota. Beyond that, he’s not sure where he will end up.

But unlike his outlook from a year ago, it appears Vickers will have a lot of good options.

Few get a second chance in NASCAR. Vickers got one with Waltrip’s team after imploding in the second half last season and he’s made the most of his opportunity.
