Joe Gibbs Racing driver Brian Vickers finished fourth in the 5-Hour Energy 200 benefitting Living Beyond Breast Cancer at Dover International Speedway on Saturday. Vicker’s JGR teammates Elliott Sadler and Kyle Busch also finished in the top 10 in the Nationwide Series race.
Vickers was the last of four drivers – including winner Joey Logano, runner-up Kyle Larson and Third-place finisher Kevin Harvick – to finish on the lead lap in the 200-lap race.
Vickers, who started 11th on the field in the No. 20 Dollar General Toyota Camry, spent most of the race in the top 10.
“The Dollar General Toyota was really good today, but when we came across the finish line and they said, ‘Nice fourth,’ and I’m like, ‘Fourth — the leader was right behind me?’ said Vickers following the race. “But the guys did a great job and made the most of it. I’m thankful for that because now all of the DollarGeneral.com customers get 10 percent off on Monday.”
Sadler finished fifth in the No. 11 OneMain Financial Toyota, while Busch finished eighth in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota. Busch led 89 of the race’s 200 laps, but pit strategy got the best of the team as the race went green for the final 160 laps.
