David Reutimann:

Martinsville: "Martinsville is a tough track -- it's a short track, shaped like a paper clip that provides some bumping and banging for the fans."

"I have to be honest -- it's not a favorite track of mine -- I've had some problems there in the past, but I'm learning and expect to get better each race."

Thoughts: "Last weekend we had a good #00 Dominos.com Toyota, and I take full blame for making contact with the wall on the first lap. To be honest, it just broke loose off turn four and I couldn't catch it quick enough. Still, the team got the #00 Dominos.com Toyota patched up, and it still ran competitive laps throughout the race -- which shows the teams ability to handle adversity."
