When 2010 rose up and came, no one was expecting much; that was until Brian Vickers had blood clots and could not race the number 83 red bull toyota most of the 2010 season. Multiple drivers such as Reed Sorenson and Mattias Ekström drove the infamous 83 in replace for Vickers. We all wished Brian a safe and quick recovery and hoped to see him in 2011 for the Daytona 500. Dreams came true, and Vickers is back in the #83 car and has tested and is ready to compete once again in the NACAR Sprint Cup Series. I know i and many others are very pleased to see the return of Vickers and wish him the best season. Well not only will we see the #83 return, but we are also seeing a new number (#4) and a new driver for Red Bull Racing, Kasey Kahne.
When the 2010 season finished for the those drivers at Homestead, it was a tough day for many $$ fans. Yet we all said that he will get a ride in 2011 and if not in 2012. It was a hard and heated topic on Speed Chicks & Stars (I am a panelist on this show) and we hit some hard times. Now as the offseason has approached we all just hoped for the best and would still be diehard Speed fans no matter what. Then one more rock fell and shook the nation, $$ sued RBR for 6.5 million dollars (look up on google or yahoo for entire story). Another shocking point for many, we all said a lot "Go Scott Speed!". While many fans hope that the season goes well for Speed when he does get a ride, a lot of fans hope RBR does not run to their full ability. PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE FAN BASED OPINIONS. I believe that no matter what to cheer on a team you love to the best of their ability, even if it's a team you do not favor.
Well i asked some fans about what they felt about Scott Speed and the future:
Larry Spencer said: "Scott has a huge amount of talent and deserves to be in a quality cup ride"
I would agree with these two guys, and i thank them for sharing what they felt about it all. My feelings for 2011 and beyond are this: I believe Scott Speed has got a ton of talent that he can for sure share with the world. If he ends up back in F1, ARCA, or Nationwide we wish him the best of luck. On Twitter he tells us not to worry and my advice says not to worry and to relax and see how the cards fall out. BEST OF LUCK TO SCOTT SPEED ON FINDING A NEW RIDE. Also Good Luck to Red Bull Racing and Brian Vickers and Kasey Kahne. Red Bull does give you wings! :)
