Title: #00 team to lose sponsors?
Post by: Cheryl on September 18, 2007, 12:21:50 PM
No substantiated source, but this is one of the rumors on Jayski today:

"#00 team to lose sponsors? hearing that Burger King and Domino's Pizza will not return to the #00 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota in 2008, no word if one of the other or both will sponsor another team in 2008. David Reutimann is the current driver of the #00, but could be headed to another team in 2008 or could return to MWR with another sponsor.(9-18-2007):

Guess those sponsors are tired of pouring money into racing when their teams don't make every race and even if they do get very little camera time because they aren't competitive.

 I think this was a one year deal anyways, at least the BK sponsorship.

It would be kind of nice to be able to go back to Burger King after all this time. 

And maybe David will land somewhere else which I would like.
