Reutimann ready to go fender to fender on the high banks of Bristol

* Reutimann's Bristol Stats: In five starts, Reutimann boasts two top-five and four top-10 finishes. He has started in the top-10 three times and has led 33 laps at the famed 0.533-mile bullring track. His best start at Bristol Motor Speedway is fifth (March, 2008) and he has twice claimed his best finish of third (August, 2007 and March, 2008).

* Testing, testing...The Dollar General team spent Monday and Tuesday testing at Carolina Motorsports Park (Kershaw, S.C.) with former F1 and CART champion, Jacques Villeneuve. Villeneuve will drive the No. 32 Dollar General Toyota next weekend at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Reutimann on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"Bristol Motor Speedway is one of those tracks where anything can happen and when it does, it happens fast. It's a tough track and you have to be on your toes for 250 laps. The racing is exciting for the fans and exhausting for the drivers. It's a challenging track that I really enjoy racing at. I'm looking forward to being back in the Dollar General Toyota this weekend. Trent Owens and the No. 32 team have done a great job every week unloading a stout Camry. I've come close to winning here a couple of times. A win at a short track like Bristol is a big deal for a driver because it is such a driver-intensive race. It would be great to get that win with the No. 32 guys."

Equipment Information

* The No. 32 Dollar General team will compete with chassis #027 in this weekend's Food City 250 at the Bristol Motor Speedway.

* #027 was last seen on track at Lowe's Motor Speedway (October, 2008) where it was unloaded as a back-up and Brian Vickers drove it to a third-place finish.
