CHARLOTTE, N.C.

David Reutimann will drive the No. 93 Toyota for BK Racing in the Daytona 500.

BOOGITY! BOOGITY! BOOGITY!

NASCAR on FOX brings live coverage of the Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 1 p.m. ET, with coverage on FOX beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Todd Anderson, the former car chief at TRG, will serve as crew chief for the team. Travis Kvapil will take over the driving duties in the No. 93 Toyota at Phoenix for the March 4 Sprint Cup race.

Reutimann, 41, most recently signed on to drive for Tommy Baldwin Racing last month. He will race the No. 10 Chevrolet in the races not piloted by Danica Patrick. Reutimann spent the past five seasons with Michael Waltrip Racing. He has posted two wins in 171 career Cup starts — MWR’s only victories to date.

“I was definitely starting to think that I wasn’t going to get to run the Daytona 500, but that doesn’t seem to be the case,” Reutimann said. “Daytona is such a huge deal. Everyone says it pays the same amount of points and blah, blah, blah. But it’s my home track and I didn’t know how I was going to take sitting on the sidelines. That place is pretty special to me. I’m really excited about running that race.”

Kvapil, 35, won the 2003 truck championship. He has 175 Cup starts. His best season was with Yates Racing in 2008, when he scored four top-10 finishes and won the pole for the fall Talladega race.

BK Racing also announced last week that Landon Cassill will drive the No. 83 Toyota, starting in Daytona.
