CORNELIUS, N.C. -- Race fans attending the Aaron's Dream Weekend at Talladega Superspeedway this weekend might yell out "Roll Tide!" as David Reutimann, driver of the No. 00 Aaron's Dream Machine, takes to the racetrack. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver's No. 00 Aaron's Dream Machine will sport the 2009 National Champions Alabama Crimson Tide logo on the hood and a crimson paint scheme to celebrate the University of Alabama's victory over Texas in the college football BCS Championship game.

REUTIMANN ON UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP PAINT SCHEME: "I grew up in Florida, so I am pretty sure there are going to be some people I know that aren't going to be real happy to see me in an Alabama Crimson Tide car, but I think it's a pretty cool deal. I'm sure I'll become a pretty popular driver this week--a lot of people who may not normally root for me will probably be cheering me on because of this paint scheme.

"Aaron's does a great job with things like this. They have a Color Your Way to Talladega Aaron's car for the Nationwide race with Trevor Bayne this weekend, a 55th Anniversary car that Michael (Waltrip) is driving and I'm driving an Alabama National Championship car this weekend. Aaron's is always looking for new ideas and creative ways to have fun and Aaron's Dream Weekend at Talladega is a lot of fun that is for sure."
