REUTIMANN TO RACE IN INDOOR EVENT
Fans Asked To Support Holiday
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Reutimann will be making a special
appearance on Friday, December 4, to compete in the “Coffee Cup” Indoor Auto
Races being held at the Dunkin Donuts Center located in Providence, RI.
Reutimann, 39, will be racing in the headline three quarter size
midget car division for car owner Lou Cicconi of Aston, Pa. Reutimann’s
appearance is being sponsored by Dunkin Donuts. The car will carry
Reutimann's signature No. 00 and the logos of the Rhode Island Community
Reutimann will not only compete against 48 other top drivers, but
will sign autographs as well for fans before the races get underway at 7
p.m. Because Reutimann is racing on behalf of the Food Bank, fans are
encouraged to “Give Back This Holiday Season” by bringing a non-perishable
food item to the races that can be donated to that cause.
Reutimann, a second-generation driver from Zephyrhills, Fla., is
currently 16th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series point standings with one race
remaining. Earlier this year he won his first NASCAR Sprint Cup series event
for car owner Michael Waltrip when he received the checkered first at the
Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C.
Reutimann will find the competition very tough at Providence. His
teammate Lou Cicconi is rated one of the very best in Indoor Auto racing.
Also entered is nine-time NASCAR champion Mike Stefanik from Conventry,
R.I., and 2008 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ted Christopher.
Christopher won a main event in Providence last March.
Friday’s show will consist of time trials, qualifying races and a
30-lap main event. While Reutimann will not return on Saturday night, the
same program will be run, with a 40-lap main event scheduled.
The Rhode Island Community Food Bank is a non-profit organization
located in Providence. The Food Bank solicits stores and distributes food
products donated by supermarkets, wholesalers, food processors, local
farmers and community food drives. In the past year, the Food Bank
distributed 9.5 million pounds of food while feeding more than 50,000 Rhode
Islanders each month through a network of more than 300 certified member
agency programs across the state. This rise in need reflects a 28% increase
over last year. For more information about the Food Bank, please visit
