Red Bull Racing announced Tuesday that Brian Vickers has signed a multi- year extension to his contract.

Vickers will continue to drive the No. 83 car under the leadership of crew chief Ryan Pemberton.

The announcement comes two days after Vickers and Red Bull won the Carfax 400 Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.

Vickers started the race from the pole and took the victory when Jimmie Johnson had to pit for fuel while leading the race.

The victory was the first for the Red Bull team and second for Vickers in a Sprint Cup career which started full time in 2004 when he raced for Hendrick Motorsports.
