Brian Vickers: A-Hole

Well played, Mr. Vickers. Ass!

Brian Vickers is a douche. In today's UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, Vickers single-handedly screwed Dale Earnhardt Jr and Jimmie Johnson. And he didn't even give them the common courtesy of a reach-around.

Vickers, who shuttled between the leaders and the also-rans, was in prime position during the race's final lap, behind only Junior and teammate Johnson. As Johnson pulled around Junior for the lead, Vickers followed . . . then abruptly hit Johnson's right rear quarter panel, sending his teammate's car plowing into Earnhardt's. Both Earnhardt and Johnson spun wildly into the infield, and - to my disgust - Vickers won the race.

Look, I'm not saying Vickers should have just followed his teammate to a second place finish, but considering both Earnhardt and Johnson are fighting for the Nextel Cup title, he should have shown a little more restraint. It's frakkin' Talladega! He knew what would happen when he rammed Johnson's car like that. It's a rookie move for a guy who has been in the big leagues for a few years.
