David Battles Back for 16th Place Finishes in #99 Dominos.com Toyota
Brooklyn, MI -- David Reutimann, driver of the #99 Dominos.com Toyota in the NASCAR Busch Series, finished 16th this afternoon in the CARFAX 250 from the track that is delivered by Domino's Pizza -- Michigan International Speedway .
The #99 Dominos.com Toyota rolled off 14th today, and the team hoped that another good start would bring another strong top-10 run. Unfortunately, the #25 car got loose in the corner on lap five and hit the #99 Dominos.com Toyota in the left front courtier panel -- bending it down on the tire and making the car extremely tight.
"The #99 Dominos.com Toyota was strong when the green flag dropped and I was just trying to patiently work my way through the field -- then around lap five the #25 just loses it and slams into me. That ruined our day --I mean, we were playing catch up from that point," said David.
The #99 Dominos.com team continued to work hard throughout the race -- fixing the damage, and eventually working their way back to 16th before the green flag dropped.
"It's disappointing because I know I could've finished in the top-10 or better. I wanted to give everyone at Domino's something to smile about today," said David.
