Vickers Suspected in Foam Incident
Yesterday, Hendrick Motorsports experienced a bizzare incedent, as a fire-protective foam substance flooded an airplane hanger. Police have zeroed in on Brian Vickers, driver of the 25 GMAC Chevy, as the culprit in the case.
"We're looking at multiple candidates, but based on the information we have now, Brian Vickers is our number one suspect", explained Concord, NC police spokesman Wilson Scott. "The Fru Cru also remains under close surveilance."
Vickers, winner of the "Driver Who's Due for a Win This Year" award three seasons running, has announced that he is leaving Hendrick after 2006. Since the move was announced, Hendrick employees have said that several pranks have been pulled, with evidence pointing to Vickers.
"Last month, Mr. (Rick) Hendrick went to get some coffee from the office coffeemaker", explained an employee who wished to remain nameless. "He quickly spat it out, saying that it had been spiked with Quaker State.
"Another time, when Jeff (Gordon) tried to get into his car, a whole pile of Ore-Ida fries spilled out. We haven't seen such an unprofessional display since Wally Dallenbach left here."
After several interviews, police were still reluctant to charge the driver, according to Scott. However, several cans of Red Bull found in the hanger prompted the authorities to move forward.
Vickers had no comment, as he was busy telling Kyle Busch to stop punching himself.
