In an effort to help a fellow small team, Tommy Baldwin and James Finch worked out a deal for David Reutimann to drive the No. 51 Chevrolet for Phoenix Racing following Kurt Busch’s suspension for this weekend’s race at Pocono Raceway. Dave Blaney will pilot the No. 10 Chevrolet, and Tony Raines will return to the No. 36 Chevrolet for the Pocono 400 presented by #NASCAR.
Blaney will get behind the wheel of the No. 10 Chevrolet in his 57th start for Tommy Baldwin Racing and 25th start at the Pocono, Pa., racetrack. Raines will return to the No. 36 Chevrolet. The Indiana native ran the 2012 and 2010 Sprint Showdown races for the team.
“I understand the position James was put in this week,” explained Tommy Baldwin. “As an owner of a small team, I wanted to help him out. We talked and thought that this lineup would be best for both of our teams.”
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams will hit the 2.5-mile track Wednesday, June 6 to test the new pavement. The Pocono 400 presented by #NASCAR will start at 1:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, June 3.
