Was chatting with a friend during Friday night's Nationwide race at Joliet. The camera was focused on Brian Vickers #32 Dollar General Yota. Vickers won the pole for tonight's Cup race and for the fifth time this season. So he merited a mention or two by the boys in the booth I suppose.
All season long, Brian's 2009 red beard sans moustache (officially known as a chin curtain, Donegal, or Lincoln) has had me thinking of who he resembled. Then it dawned on me a few races ago - Brian was separated at birth from Kris Kringle in the traditional, Rankin-Bass, Christmas-time show Santa Claus is Comin' To Town.
