David Reutimann Finishes 9th in #00 Domino's Late Model at Eldora Speedway

Rossburg, OH -- David Reutimann, driver of the #00 Toyota in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Michael Waltrip Racing, made a special appearance in the NEXTEL Prelude to the Dream late model All-Star race, benefiting the Victory Junction Gang Camp, last night at Eldora Speedway. The Shane Halcomb owned #00 Late Model looked very familiar last night to thousands of fans, running the blue, white and red colors associated with David and Domino's Pizza.

"Tonight was awesome -- getting the chance to race in this event was a win, win. I mean, you can not beat getting to race on dirt and against some of the best drivers in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series -- not to mention it was for a great cause. Tony (Stewart) has really put together a really cool event," said David Reutimann.

David Reutimann started 7th in his feature and in only fifteen laps quickly moved the #00 Domino's Late Model to 5th, which put him starting 15th in the NEXTEL Prelude All-Star Race. David did not stay in 15th long - driving the #00 Domino's Pizza past many of the NEXTEL Cup's best, and when the checkered flew on lap 30 David was sitting a comfortable 9th.

"The car was awesome and I know we could have finished a little better with a few more laps, but over all I'm very pleased. I just want to thank Shane Halcomb and everyone associated with his team -- those guys worked extremely hard and kept getting the car better. Also, it doesn't hurt to have those guys telling me how to get around at Eldora," said David,
