It’s Official: Reutimann, Aaron’s Ink Extensions With MWR

[1]Michael Waltrip Racing announced that it has signed David Reutimann to a contact extension, locking the driver up through the 2012 Sprint Cup Series season.

Additionally, MWR has extended its agreement with Aaron’s Inc. Aaron’s will appear as primary sponsor in 30 races in 2010, six more than originally planned. Aaron’s will also sponsor the No. 00 Sprint Cup Toyota for 30 races in both 2011 and 2012. They will also become an associate sponsor on all MWR Toyotas.

Reutimann said of the announcement:

I’ve been asked about my contract for the last month and we’ve had a handshake agreement, but now it’s done and I’m glad I can finally talk about it. I’m thrilled. This is where I want to be – at Michael Waltrip Racing driving the No. 00 with Aaron’s on the hood.

The deal was agreed to long ago [2], but it was a handshake deal. It is now official.
