Michael Waltrip Racing has confirmed that Aaron’s will sponsor the No. 00 Toyota, driven by David Reutimann, for the entire Sprint Cup season.
Initially, Aaron’s agreed to sponsor the car for half of the season.
Michael Waltrip said he spoke with Aaron’s CEO Ken Butler, saying:
I said, ‘Reutimann’s going to win. You watch.’ And I said, ‘If he wins in somebody else’s car, that’s going to really get on my nerves, because you guys have put us here. We want him to win in your car.’ And we were going to leave Daytona and go to California either with out a sponsor or a different sponsor. I just couldn’t handle that, so we talked and we worked (it out).
