With qualifying rained out this weekend at Atlanta, team Redbull once again finds itself on the outside looking in. First their car failed to qualify with Bill Elliott a couple races back. Because Terry Labonte was also qualifying for that field and failed, he got the past champion's provisional and Elliott and Redbull were sent home. So they obviously weren't ready.
Now during the teams second attempt, their lack of points has them on the outside again. Ironically, Bill Elliott is in the field thanks to his provisional - one Team Red Bull would have been able to take advantage of had they not asked him to step out of the car for this weekend in favor of their newly announced driver for next year, AJ Almendwhatever.
