In it, Vickers expresses no regrets over the radio transmission that he abided by to help ensure enough points for his teammate Martin Truex Jr. to make the Chase (before that was erased).
“If helping a teammate, friend and brother in arms is a crime, then I’m guilty,” Vickers wrote. “But if my teammate(s) needed me again and it was of no consequence to me, my team or our partners, I would make the same decision time and time again.”
He said people should consider their thoughts and words about the team. Hundreds of families could be affected from MWR and their partners.
“If our amazing partners were pressured to the extent of pulling out, hundreds of families would lose their means of income. You should consider this next time you decide to rant on Twitter about something without having all the facts,” Vickers wrote.
When it comes to the action itself taken by MWR, Vickers again confirmed that what happened Saturday night isn’t new, and isn’t uncommon.
“Every lap we take, every car we pass, every pit stop we make changes the outcome of the race. Are we free to choose what and when those moments are or not? You can’t have it both ways,” he said.
Whether you agree or not, it’s well worth a full read.
