Reutimann’s finish a career best

David Reutimann’s future in the Nextel Cup Series is the object of much speculation these days. Michael Waltrip Racing is looking to nail down sponsorship to keep him in the No. 00 Toyotas, but Reutimann also is talking to other teams because he still doesn’t have a firm deal for 2008.

Runs like the one he had Saturday night might help. Reutimann finished 13th, a career best in Cup, but felt like he it could have been better.

“I would have liked to have had a top-10 finish tonight and I’m disappointed because I think we had a car capable of doing that,” Reutimann said.

“I am real happy with the effort, but I do feel like we might have left something on the table. It was fun to be able to race with those guys tonight. We haven’t had much of a chance to do that this season.”
