Reutimann joins Brian Vickers, Reed Sorenson, Jacques Villeneuve and Brian Ickler to round out the talented cast of drivers in the No. 32 Camry.

* Double Duty Driving: Reutimann is amongst those drivers making the 6.59-mile dash between O'Reilly Raceway Park (ORP) and Indianapolis Motor Speedway for this weekend's NASCAR events.

Ickler will drive the Dollar General Toyota next weekend at Iowa Speedway and at Memphis Motorsports Park in October.

Reutimann on racing at ORP:

"I am excited to be racing at ORP in Braun Racing's Dollar General Toyota. This is the first of five races that I will be running with the No. 32 team. They have been incredibly strong this year, putting some great cars on the track with talented drivers. I'm looking forward to working with Trent (Owens, crew chief of the No. 32) and the Dollar General team. Indy has not been the best track for me in the past. I did run well here in 2007 when I had someone else practice and qualify the car. Brian Ickler will be helping us out this weekend with practice so hopefully we will have a very positive race. I would love nothing more than to conquer this track with a win and put Dollar General in victory lane."

Equipment Information

* The No. 32 Dollar General team will compete with chassis #028 in this weekend's Kroger 200 at ORP. * This is the same chassis that the No. 32 team ran last weekend at Gateway International Raceway with Reed Sorenson. He and the No. 88 tied for the pole position; however, the No. 32 started second due to being lower in owner's points. Sorenson brought home a second-place finish for the night.
