ETC.: Vickers admits the final 11 races of 2013 will be used to get ready for 2014. "That's what this year is about, preparing for next year and that's what we're doing," said Vickers, who was quick to add, "but our job at every race is to do our best and never give up. We want to thank Aaron's for coming on board and having me in the car the rest of the season and next year."
