REUTIMANN LOOKING FOR A WIN IN FINAL NASCAR BUSCH SERIES EVENT
HOMESTEAD, FL. (November 12, 2007) -- The 2007 NASCAR Busch Series season approaches the final lap this Saturday in Homestead, Fla. For the Aaron's Dream Machine driver David Reutimann, the race is the last opportunity for the team to get that exclusive second win of the season.
The Florida native scored two Pole Awards at the 1.5-mile oval in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2004 and 2005. Reutimann, whose only NBS win came several weeks ago at Memphis Motorsports Park, hopes to add a win to his Homestead racing history.
"Heading into Homestead, I look to wrap up the season with a solid run for our team and Aaron's," said Reutimann, who has secured his spot as second in the NBS point standings. "We really want to get that second win and I feel confident that we will be one of the contenders to do just that this weekend."

Reutimann Charity Golf Tournament: Reutimann is also gearing up for his third annual golf tournament at the Silverado Country Club benefiting All Children's Hospital on November 24th in his hometown of Zephyrhills, Fla.
"I don't really play golf and I keep saying I need to learn," Reutimann said. "This tournament is something close and dear to my family's heart. All the proceeds will go to All Children's Hospital, which is a center for pediatric treatment, education and research in specialized care. I have to thank our sponsors, Tony Stewart, Dale Jarrett, Michael Waltrip, Memphis Motorsports Park, Daytona International Speedway and so many others for their gracious donations. The list is so long. I can't say thank you enough."
Reutimann Reflects on Phoenix: "The Aaron's Dream Machine was really good at times," said Reutimann. "We just struggled to keep it that way the whole race. We elected to stay out with the leaders late in the race, but the fresh tires behind us started to catch us. Overall, we had a solid run and stayed with the top-15 the whole night."
Aaron's and the Dream Team: "We have such a solid team at Michael Waltrip Racing, which makes racing and spending time with them so enjoyable," said Reutimann. "Each week, Jerry (Baxter) and the guys bring great cars and are always well-prepared. The crew and TRD have such a wealth of knowledge that when I get to the track, all I have to do is focus on racing."
"Aaron's is such a huge supporter of our team and the sport in general," said Reutimann. "Each week, corporate representatives as well as local stores associates come to the track to root for us. I can't thank them enough for all they do."
Chassis Information: The Michael Waltrip Racing team will be bringing Chassis No. 41. This car won the Busch Pole Award in Texas two weeks ago and has delivered two top-15 finishes (Charlotte and Dover).
