Other than the time he took out Kyle at Chicagoland back in '10 I believe, I've always kinda liked Reutimann.

Glad he got a ride. Too bad it's a backmarker.

That time that he paid back Shrub... that was great! Way to go Dave!

Well if Dave hadn't lifted going into the corner, Shrub wouldn't have got to his left corner and spun him..........racin deal I guess.

It is a ride but I think Reutimann can drive better then the equipment Baldwin has to offer!

I'm a little behind the curve on David's new ride...why did MWR let him go?

As usual, it boils down to $$$$.

Clint Bowyer (and his sponsorship money), went to MWR's #15 full-time for 2012. The #15 ran part-time in 2011 with Michael at the wheel.

Mark Martin was looking for an opportunity to race in 2012, and signed on to run the #00 in 25 races. Michael is going to drive it in the others..

I'm pretty sure that's how it all went down. Michael is really trying to make his team competitive on a consistent basis...the money from Bowyer's deal along with Martin's experience theoretically puts him on that path.

Kind of a rough deal for Reutimann, who is one of my favorites.
