Aarons To Sponsor MWR's No. 00, Reutimann

Michael Waltrip Racing has announced that Aaron’s Sales & Lease Ownership will sponsor the team’s No. 00 Sprint Cup entry and driver David Reutimann for 18 races in 2009.

The company will also sponsor MWR’s Nationwide entry for 10 races, with Reutimann and Michael Waltrip splitting time behind the wheel. This baffles me a bit as Reutimann has performed pretty well in the Nationwide series this year, and all indications are that he will contend for the championship in that series next year.

Splitting time with Waltrip seems like it will only hurt him, instead of help.
