MWR Confirms Reutimann's Ouster
“David has been a significant part of Michael Waltrip Racing since the very beginning and will forever be a part of our heritage,” said co-owner Michael Waltrip. “We want to thank David for his contribution to our growth and success over the past five years and wish him well in the future.”
Reutimann will remain with the team for the final three races of the 2011 season. In 168 Sprint Cup Series starts for the team, Reutimann recorded two wins, 12 Top-5, 25 Top-10 finishes and four poles.
The team has a press conference scheduled for 10:30 AM CT Friday at Texas Motor Speedway, reportedly to announce that Mark Martin will replace Reutimann in a limited schedule of races in the #00 Toyota next season.
