all i know since yesterday is everything has changed.  
Hi. It's been almost a year since I posted anything.

I miss David Reutimann. I guess why I don't post much anymore (aside from the face that i'm busy as hell) is because 90% of this blog was about him and Nascar.

This was the first season he hasn't run in Nascar full time, and it's just not the same. I'm super happy for him that Beak Built is successful and he's happy building dirt cars, but I really miss watching him race every week. This was also the first year that I didn't see him at all. I even went to his shop in North Carolina this summer and he wasn't there! I still feel like this is way too soon and he has so much racing left in him, but I don't know if he'll ever be back in Nascar. I try not to think about it a lot because I don't want it to be true. :(

And it's always in the back of my mind... he would've won so many races if he had the chance to drive the kind of equipment MWR has now versus when they were a start-up team. He won when the equipment was horrible, imagine what he could do with what they have now. And if they had the new Chase format when he was there he would've been in it. So many "what ifs."

He still races on dirt sometimes but it's really hard to follow since you can't watch it on tv or even stream it online unless it's a really big race. He said he'd only race in Nascar again it's a competitive ride because he's done racing for low budget teams, and I don't blame him. Those teams like TBR and BK Racing absolutely killed his reputation. No wonder he doesn't want to go through that anymore. I'm hoping a competitive ride comes along but with Nascar's obsession with young drivers I doubt that will happen, as sad and unfair as it is.

I had wondered what happened to him so thanks for writing this. I hope you are hanging in there with your school stuff!
