David Reutimann Qualifies 12th in the Dominos.com Toyota at MIS

Brooklyn, MI -- David Reutimann, driver of the #00 Dominos.com Toyota in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Michael Waltrip Racing, qualified 12th today for Sunday's 3M Performance 400 at the track that is delivered by Domino's Pizza -- Michigan International Speedway.

The #00 Dominos.com was 18th fastest in the first practice session, and 2nd of the teams that would have to qualify their way into the race. The Dominos.com team was optimistic that David could put down a good enough lap to lock them into the field for Sunday's race.

That was exactly the case as David posted his highest qualifying effort of the year with a 12th place effort this afternoon. His previous best was a trio of 14th starting positions at Talladega, Richmond and Darlington. Right in front of David was his teammate and car owner Michael Waltrip -- who put down a solid lap to start 11th on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.

"The #00 Dominos.com Toyota felt good and I was able to put down a solid lap -- giving us a good starting spot for Sunday's race. Now we have to focus on getting the #00 Dominos.com Toyota ready to race and I'm confident that Frank (Kerr) can get us in a competitive set-up come Sunday," said David Reutimann.
