REUTIMANN LOOKING TO ROPE ANOTHER VICTORY

FORT WORTH, Texas (October 30, 2007) -- Fresh off his first NASCAR Busch Series win at Memphis Motorsports Park, David Reutimann and the No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine enter Texas Motor Speedway looking for another trip to Victory Lane this Saturday.

"Things really came together for us last week," said Reutimann. "We have been working at this all year and been close several times. People say it's easier once you get the first win. My team and I are going to continue to work just as hard. Hopefully, we can get a few more for Aaron's and Michael Waltrip Racing before the season ends."

This weekend, the Aaron's Dream Machine will have another special design on the hood of the Toyota Camry. Aaron's Sales and Lease Ownership recently opened its 1500th store in Mansfield, Texas. To honor this milestone, Reutimann's No. 99 Toyota Camry will sport a special hood design commemorating Aaron's 1500th store grand opening.

"I am proud to be able to join in the Aaron's celebration," said Reutimann. "Aaron's continues to make Dream's come true with their great deals and "dream products". It is wonderful to see such growth in the company. Celebrating with the Aaron's Representatives and Associates in Victory Lane would be ideal."

Aaron's Dream Machine Driver: David Reutimann Notes and Quotes

Dreams Come True in Victory Lane: "Our Dream Machine last weekend made many dreams come true," said Reutimann, who was one of 12 drivers that participated in the St. Jude "Race to Save Lives" Paint Scheme Campaign. "Through a program with St. Jude's, a little boy had the opportunity to design our car. It was special to be able to share a moment with him by the car in Victory Lane."

NBS Experience at TMS: Reutimann has raced three NASCAR Busch Series events at Texas Motor Speedway. Earlier this season, Reutimann finished sixth after starting seventh at the 1.5-mile oval with Michael Waltrip Racing.

"I've led some laps at Texas before so I have a good feel for the track," Reutimann said. "We're after another solid finish and it's attainable as long as we stay out of trouble. The fact that we won and led the most laps last weekend is a real motivator for us."

NCTS history at Texas Motor Speedway: Reutimann has three top-five and five top-10 finishes driving the No. 17 Toyota Tundra for Darrell Waltrip Motorsports in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

"We've had solid finishes there in a truck," Reutimann said, whose best finish is third in 2004. "The only time we finished outside the top-10 was when we were involved in someone else's mess."
