David Reutimann to Roll off 14th Tomorrow Night at Richmond

Richmond, VA -- David Reutimann, driver of the #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Michael Waltrip Racing, qualified 14th for tomorrow nights Jim Stewart 400 presented by Crown Royal at Richmond International Raceway.

"The #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota was handling really well on both laps during qualifying. I cannot thank Frank (Kerr) and the rest of the #00 Domino's Pizza team for getting this car in good shape for Bud Pole qualifying," said David.

David delivered the fourth fastest time of the non-point teams at 124.902 mph, which was good enough to put the #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota in the field for Saturday night's race. The 14th place start ties his season best, which was set last weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.

"Last weekend was definitely disappointing -- coming so close to a top 10 finish, but the team keeps giving 100% and I believe we are starting to see results," said Reutimann.

This weekends race is an impound race, meaning that the team will not get the opportunity to adjust on the #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota till the first caution comes out in tomorrow nights race. "Since it's an impound race we really pretty much stuck with what we had in qualifying, but I'm confident in Frank (Kerr) to make the right adjustments and get the #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota competitive," said David.
