My, My What a Month!
After leaving Charlotte in May with a pole run and a top five finish, it was difficult to wait until August to see Brian Vickers pilot the ABF U-Pack Camry in the NASCAR Nationwide series again. Boy, did Brian and the entire Braun Racing Crew make up for lost time!
The Weather Was NICE!!!
For what seemed like the first time this season, the weather actually cooperated as the Nationwide Series headed to the concrete superspeedway in Nashville, Tennessee. Both Jason Leffler and Denny Hamlin of Team ABF Racing were looking to bring home one of the coolest trophies on the circuit; a custom Les Paul designed Gibson guitar. Leffler already has one guitar from his first win in the 2004 Nationwide Series in Nashville. Hamlin has finished as high as third at the track, but has yet to visit Victory Lane.
A Tough Weekend in Vegas Team ABF Racing headed to Las Vegas this weekend, as Brian Vickers returned to the track in the #32 along with Jason Leffler, who is piloting the #38 full time for Braun Racing. Both cars were carrying ABF as an associate sponsor. While both drivers came to Vegas hoping to win big, lady luck was not on their side.
Brian Vickers and the ABF U-Pack Toyota Camry did not compete this week. However, the #32 fielded this week by Kyle Busch, on loan from Joe Gibbs Racing, and the #38, fielded as always by Nationwide star Jason Leffler and carrying the major associate sponsorship of ABF, both took to the track for an unusual and prolonged race weekend.
