NASCAR driver David Reutimann has signed with Tommy Baldwin Racing for the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season.
Reutimann was released from Michael Waltrip Racing last season after three years with the team in order to make room for veteran Mark Martin. During his tenure at MWR, Reutimann won two Sprint Cup series races. He also has one victory in both the Nationwide and Truck Series.
“Tommy has built a really good organization from the ground up in a really short amount of time,” said Reutimann. “One of the things I like about Tommy and what’s refreshing about him is that he is just a racer. There are lots of things he could be doing but instead he is at the shop every day working hard to build the organization from the ground up. There are not a lot of true racers in the garage, and he is one of them. It’s the way I was raised with my Dad, so we are on the same page. I’m just really looking forward to the season and see what we can do.”
As a crew chief Baldwin won the 2002 Daytona 500 with driver Ward Burton. Last season with primary driver Dave Blaney TBR finished a respectable 33rd in owner’s points. The team ran a second car in five races in the second half of 2011. MORE>>>
