Less than a week after announcing a new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series ride with Tommy Baldwin Racing, David Reutimann now has a seat on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“RBR is a small team, but when they do something, they do it right,” said Reutimann today. “(Team owner) Ricky Benton did a nice job last year, and they have improved their trucks and engine program during the offseason. They need a little more budget to race full-time, but the races we run will be done right.”
“We’re definitely looking to add another marketing partner or two,” admitted Benton, who finished third in the 2011 opener at Daytona International Speedway with Rogers at the wheel, and led the Camping World Truck Series points early in the season. “We’ll have Black’s Tire and BTS Tire and Wheel on the No. 92 Chevrolet Silverado again this season, but those are my own companies. If we can find some additional sponsor help, there’s a chance we could run the entire Truck Series schedule.”
The team will debut in the 2012 lid-lifter at Daytona, with subsequent races to be announced.
