David Reutimann      

Race Car Driver; 2004 NASCAR Rookie of the Year

David Reutimann started his first race in 2005 at Lowes Motor Speedway for Michael Waltrip Racing. However it wasn't until 2007 that he joined the team full time to help usher Toyota into the Sprint Cup ranks.

David Reutimann signed with the Waltrip family back in 2004 to drive Toyota Trucks for Darrell Waltrip in the Craftsman Truck Series. He won the Craftsman Truck Rookie of the Year honors that year. In 2007 he moved into the Cup Series with Michael Waltrip Racing.

He picked up his first career Sprint Cup victory by playing the rain perfectly in the 2009 Coca-Cola 600.

2011 was a disappointing year for both Reutimann and MWR. David and #00 team only scored one top five finish and two top ten finishes.

After Christmas 2011 Reutimann signed up to drive for part times with Stewart-Haas Racing and Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2012 sharing the No. 10 Go-Daddy.com car with rookie Danica Patrick.

In 2012, Reutimann signed a one-year contract to drive for Tommy Baldwin Racing. As part of an alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing that TBR agreed to, Reutimann shared the SHR No. 10 entry, which was fielded by TBR, with Danica Patrick. He also drove the No. 92 Ricky Benton Racing vehicle in the Camping World Truck Series on a limited schedule. As Patrick drove the No. 10 in the 2012 Daytona 500, Reutimann drove the No. 93 Toyota Camry for BK Racing in the event with Todd Anderson serving as crew chief. Reutimann also drove the BK Racing No. 93 at Darlington.

Reutimann drove the No. 51 Chevrolet for Phoenix Racing at the June Pocono race during the one-race suspension of Kurt Busch for actions detrimental to the sport. Baldwin explained his decision as helping another small team (Reutimann was to drive the No. 10 car that weekend). Reutimann finished 21st. Reutimann qualified and raced for a new team Xxxtreme Motorsports at the fall Phoenix race in the No. 44 No Label Watches Ford, finishing 40th.

In 2013, BK Racing announced that Reutimann would drive the No. 83 Toyota during the 2013 season, replacing Landon Cassill.
