CORNELIUS, N.C. (AP)—Michael Waltrip Racing says David Reutimann will not be back with the team next season.
MWR has a news conference scheduled Friday at Texas Motor Speedway, and is expected to announce Mark Martin will take over the No. 00 Toyota next year.
Team co-owner Waltrip says Reutimann will forever be part of the MWR heritage. He has been with the team since its inaugural 2007 season, and gave MWR its first victory in 2009.
In 168 Sprint Cup Series starts, Reutimann has two wins, 25 top-10s and four poles.
Reutimann this season has just two top-10s and is 28th in the Sprint Cup standings.
Martin is not expected to run a full season. He could share the seat with Waltrip, who has made seven starts the last two years.
