Reutimann up to speed (when it counts)

-A A +A

Second place was almost a first, and who could blame David Reutimann for feeling that way after the inaugural Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway on July 9?

Before roaring past five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson at the finish, Reutimann, who has two career Cup wins, had finished no better than ninth in 2011.

"We unfortunately have a bit of a history of being fast when it doesn't really matter," said Reutimann. "Tonight worked out where we were fast at the end of the race, which is evidently what you've got to do.

"Proud of my guys."

The 41-year-old Reutimann is from a racing family. Father Buzzie is a short-track legend. The Zephyrhills, Fla., native made his Cup debut on Oct. 15, 2005 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and claimed his first victory at the same track in 2009. He followed up with a Chicagoland Speedway triumph in 2010.
