Reutimann plans some Truck racing
David Reutimann will drive in several NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this season, competing in the Ricky Benton Racing No. 92 Chevrolet.
Reutimann, who has a pair of Sprint Cup wins to his credit, will drive in 13 to 15 of the scheduled 22 series races. The team’s schedule could expand if more sponsorship is secured.
Reutimann previously announced plans to drive for Tommy Baldwin Racing in the Sprint Cup Series.
"The Truck series is where I got my start," Reutimann said. "It’s a very competitive series, and I am thrilled to have this opportunity to run some races with a good team that is in the process of building.
"There is definitely the potential to run well (at RBR Enterprises). I wouldn’t have accepted this opportunity if I didn’t believe that. It’s going to be a challenge, but I like the fact that they are committed to bringing the best piece to the track at the races we run instead of taking less than our best to every race."
Reutimann will work with crew chief Jason Overstreet, with whom he worked at Darrell Waltrip Racing and Germain Racing. Together the duo combined for six poles and one win in the series with Waltrip from 2004-06.
"Having worked with David and having a great working relationship with him definitely flattens the learning curve," Overstreet said. "We have a lot of experience working together, so we have already hit the ground running and can’t wait for Daytona to get here."
Driver Clay Rogers finished 20th in the 2011 series points standings driving the No. 92 BTS Tire and Wheel Distributors/fleetHQ.com Chevrolet despite making only 15 of 25 starts in the series.
