The Sprint Cup Series "mystery team" has struck again and David Reutimann is the beneficiary.
Reutimann will drive a Toyota for the organization - reportedly called BK Racing - that purchased the former Red Bull Racing team's assets and tam up with Landon Cassill for the Daytona 500.
Reutimann confirmed the story Tuesday afternoon with an appearance on SIRIUS/XM NASCAR Radio.
“They’re up there in Statesville thrashing away, getting things ready to go to the Daytona 500,” Reutimann told the "Sirius/XM Speedway" program. “Things came together pretty quickly on this deal. We talked a bit a few days ago, but it took a little longer (to finalize) than I would have liked, simply because they’re trying to do so much at once. We had talks back and forth, exchanged a few text messages, and it has finally gotten to the point where we can make a bit of an announcement.
“They’re a great bunch of people. They’re very serious about what they’re doing. They’ve invested a lot of time and money to get this far, and I’m pretty impressed with what they’ve done."
Reutimann has a 26 race schedule already in place for Tommy Baldwin Racing but Daytona was not part of that plan.
Brian Vickers and Travis Kvapil remain candidates to pair with Cassill at the new team for the balance of the 2012 season.
