Ricky Benton Racing has reached a deal with David Reutimann to pilot the team’s No. 92 Chevy truck in the Camping World Truck Series next season. Reutimann will drive the truck in 13 to 15 races in 2012.
The Truck series is where I got my start. It’s a very competitive series, and I am thrilled to have this opportunity to run some races with a good team that is in the process of building. There is definitely the potential to run well (at RBR Enterprises). I wouldn’t have accepted this opportunity if I didn’t believe that. It’s going to be a challenge, but I like the fact that they are committed to bringing the best piece to the track at the races we run instead of taking less than our best to every race.
Reutimann’s crew chief will be Jason Overstreet. The two worked together previously at Darrell Waltrip Racing and Germain Racing.
Having worked with David and having a great working relationship with him definitely flattens the learning curve. We have a lot of experience working together, so we have already hit the ground running and can’t wait for Daytona to get here.
Reutimann has signed on to drive for Tommy Baldwin Racing in the Sprint Cup next season .
