David Reutimann started form guaranteed the 34th starting position for Sunday's Party and finished 32th
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (June 10, 2013) - David Reutimann and the No. 83 Burger King / Dr. Pepper Toyota team finished 32nd on Sunday afternoon following a wet weekend at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.
Running on a limited schedule after practice and qualifying were cancelled for rain on Friday afternoon, Reutimann and the No. 83 Burger King / Dr. Pepper Toyota Camry team participated in two practice sessions on Saturday morning to prepare for Sunday's 400-mile race. Reutimann was guaranteed the 34th starting position for Sunday's Party in the Pocono's 400 presented by Walmart when the field was set according to the NASCAR rulebook, so the BK Racing team utilized practice to prepare their Camry for the race.
"This weekend's race proved to be a bit of a challenge," commented Reutimann. "With the rain cancelling qualifying and cutting our practice time short, the No. 83 Burger King / Dr. Pepper team had to work quickly to dial in our Toyota Camry for Sunday's race. With the varying weather conditions, our setup proved to be a bit too loose for the race, but the guys worked hard all afternoon to try to get the car tightened up. It's always a challenge when you have to start deep in the field at a track where passing can be difficult, but I'm proud of the effort of my team and all the hard work they put in all weekend. I'm looking forward to getting to Michigan International Speedway next weekend."
