REUTIMANN HOPES FOR A TRIP TO VICTORY LANE FOR FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND

FT. MITCHELL, Ky. (June 11, 2007) -- David Reutimann would like nothing more for Father's Day than to greet his dad, Buzzie, as he drives the Aaron's Dream Machine into Victory lane at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday.

"It would mean the world to me to win that race for my dad on Father's Day weekend," Reutimann said. "Growing up, my dad and I were always at a track either racing or watching a race. I have been blessed to have such great support and I contribute a huge part of my racing success to him. I have always enjoyed this track and I think a victory here is within our reach."

In 2006, the No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine team finished eighth with Reutimann at the 1.5-mile tri-oval. Reutimann has a respectable track record at Kentucky Speedway and is confident his Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry will be a contender this weekend.

"I've competed there a few times in the NASCAR Busch Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series," Reutimann said. "I have a couple of top-10 finishes. Last season, I finished 8th in the Aaron's Dream Machine for Michael Waltrip Racing."

David Reutimann will continue another split weekend as his NASCAR NEXTEL Cup (NNCS) team will be at Michigan International Raceway. Reutimann will fly into Kentucky Friday night to participate in final practice in the Aaron's Dream Machine. Shortly after, Reutimann will jet back to Michigan for NNCS practice before returning again to qualify and race in the NASCAR Busch Series event on Saturday at Kentucky Speedway.
