Tommy Baldwin Racing to Run Sprint Showdown

Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) will compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Sprint Showdown this weekend. Looking for some important track time, TBR will utilize the weekend to continue to build the team’s 1.5-mile program.

Due to commitments to his NASCAR K&N Pro Series team at Iowa Speedway, Dave Blaney will not compete in the event. Tony Raines will get behind the wheel of the No. 36 Chevrolet and help the team get practice time at the 1.5-mile speedway. David Reutimann will also return to the No. 10 Chevrolet for the event.

“As we grow as a team, it is extremely important that we take any time we can to gain information for our program,” said Tommy Baldwin. “Originally, we were going to take the week off to catch up in the shop, but we feel that we are in a position to gain more from running the race.”

Both Reutimann and Raines will get the behind the wheel for practice on Friday and compete in the 40-lap expedition event on Saturday night.
