David Reutimann Fast Facts - New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Added pressure with the start of the "Race for the Chase," the ten races leading up to the Chase for the Championship:

"There's always pressure but every race leading up to the chase is important to get back in the top-12. Of course, this weekend our main focus is Loudon and having a solid finish there. The fact that it's the first race in the chase will be our focus when that time comes."

Shaking off the disappointment from a tough week:

"I think it's pretty obvious that road course racing is not my strong suite, so I'm happy to going to Loudon. That in itself is enough to shake the disappointment."

Racing at New Hampshire:

"It's a mile, oval track that doesn't have much banking, so it produces really tight racing, especially getting into the corners. Double file restarts should make it even more challenging but exciting for the fans. It’s a good track for me. The finishes haven't been where I would like to see them but overall I enjoy racing at New Hampshire."

Expectations for this weekend at New Hampshire:

"The goal in every race is to win and that's what we aim for but we're also trying to get back in the top 12. This means we need to stay out of trouble and have solid finish."
