David Reutimann Delivers a 29th Place Finish at Richmond

Richmond, VA -- The #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota, driven by David Reutimann in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Michael Waltrip Racing, finished 29th today in the Jim Stewart 400 presented by Crown Royal from Richmond International Raceway.

The #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota started 14th today, which brought high expectations with the drop of the green flag. Unfortunately, with no practice in race conditions the #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota was extremely tight and would not turn in the corners -- as a result David dropped numerous spots in the field and the team could never recover.

"We had one practice session this weekend to get the #00 Domino's Pizza Toyota ready to qualify and that's it, so we really had no idea how it would race -- we found out that the car still needed a lot of work," said David Reutimann.

David did improve on his best finish of the season, which was 32nd. The 29th place finish is another small step in the right direction for the #00 Domino's Pizza team, in continuing to fight to gain valuable driver and owner points.

"It's not the finish the #00 Domino's Pizza team was looking for after starting at the front, but I know these guys are working hard and I believe we are starting to see better results," said David of today's finish.
