Lutz, FL -- David Reutimann, driver of the #00 Toyota in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Michael Waltrip Racing, will be making a special appearance in the NEXTEL Prelude to the Dream late model All-Star race, benefiting the Victory Junction Gang Camp, next Wednesday (June 6th) at Eldora Speedway.
"I'm exciting to get the opportunity to go back to dirt and race in the NEXTEL Prelude to the Dream. I jump at any chance to get back in a late model and race on dirt - not to mention getting to compete against some of the best in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. This ride came about unexpectedly and I'm thankful to those who put forth the effort to get me in this event - including Domino's Pizza. This should be one exciting night," said David Reutimann.
David Reutimann will be piloting a late model donning the familiar blue, white and red #00 colors. Reutimann will also have a familiar sponsor as Domino's Pizza will be on the #00.
"We are really excited to be on David's car as he gets back to his racing roots, in the NEXTEL Prelude to the Dream. We would love to see him get to victory lane - but most importantly, we are happy to be part of what should be a well-deserved, fun night of racing for David," said Chris Brandon, Sports Marketing Program Leader for Domino's Pizza.
