David Reutimann Qualifies the #00 Dominos.com Toyota 19th at Martinsville Speedway

Martinsville, VA -- David Reutimann, driver of the #00 Dominos.com Toyota in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Michael Waltrip Racing, qualified 19th this afternoon for Sunday's Subway 500 from Martinsville Speedway.

Heading into Bud Pole qualifying this afternoon the #00 team really didn't have a clear indication of how the #00 Dominos.com Toyota would handle. As early morning rain showers had canceled practice after only 15 minutes -- forcing some teams to scramble to find a good set-up before qualifying.

"The #00 Dominos.com Toyota was tight off throttle, but overall not bad at all. It was a scramble trying to get the car to the line but I think that helped me - usually I have to sit there and think about it until my stomach hurts, but this time I just jumped in and let it rip. Even though we didn't have many laps in practice I was confident that Frankie (Kerr) would have the #00 Dominos.com Toyota ready to go," said Reutimann.

The #00 Dominos.com team is on a roll -- having qualified for their eighth straight NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race. "I think it's obvious that the team has come a long way since Daytona. Each week our performance get's better and it's showing in how well we're qualifying, and racing each weekend," said Frank Kerr, Crew Chief of the #00 Dominos.com Toyota.
