News: Since being sidelined after a recurrence of blood clots in mid-March, Vickers has attended the Kentucky Derby and gone hiking in Colorado. But will he be able to get back behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup Series car next season? Off the grid due to medical issues of the fairly serious nature for the fourth time in his career, Vickers has missed all but two races this season and won't return to competition until 2016 at the earliest, FOX Sports reports.
Impact: Vickers is getting his blood clot issue under control and the doctors are making with him a plan to return to racing. The veteran driver would like to make his return at Daytona next February, but that's not a sure thing just yet. As Vickers continues to recover this return date will become more clear in the next couple months.
