LOUDON, N.H. – David Reutimann finished in 33rd-place in the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 after an engine failure ended his day early. Reutimann started from the 26th position in the Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) No. 10 Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and battled the car’s handling before the engine expired on lap 229.

Reutimann took the green flag from the 26th position on Sunday. By lap 12, the Zephyrhills, Fla., native radioed that the car had low voltage and was loose into the corner. By lap 15, the No. 10 Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet fell to the 29th spot. As the run went on, he began posting laps as fast as the leader when he was in clean air. He moved into the 27th position by lap 45.

On lap 50, he told the crew that the No. 10 Chevrolet was still free on entry and would not turn in the corner. Crew Chief Ryan Pemberton called the Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet down pit road on lap 65 for a green-flag pit stop. The crew changed four tires and made a wedge adjustment.

The No. 10 Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet returned to the track in the 27th position. On lap 90, NASCAR Officials called a caution for debris on the one-mile track. Reutimann held the 28th position, a lap down. Pemberton called Reutimann down pit road for a four-tire stop, and the No. 10 Chevrolet restarted 28th on lap 94.

On lap 104, Reutimann radioed that the No. 10 was very free and about to spin out, while the voltage was still low. He held on during the next run and fell to the 30th position by lap 120. As the run continued, the handling improved, and he drove the No. 10 Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet into the 26th position by lap 150.

Pemberton called the No. 10 down pit road for the team’s third stop on lap 158. The crew made a four-tire stop and trackbar adjustment under green flag conditions. The No. 10 Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet returned to the track in the 28th position. The car continued to struggle with the voltage while Reutimann ran in the 28th position until NASCAR Officials called another caution for debris on the track on lap 191.

Reutimann drove down pit road, and the No. 10 team changed four tires. The TBR team restarted in the 29th position on lap 197. By lap 211, Reutimann radioed that the car was really struggling with the handling, more than on any other run. He continued on lap 221 that the voltage was still fluctuating. On lap 229, the engine expired on the No. 10 Mohawk Northeast Chevrolet. Reutimann finished 33rd.

The No. 10 team is currently 32nd in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Owner Points and locked into the top-35 by 110 points. The team is 31 points behind the No. 38 and seven points ahead of the No. 83. Reutimann is 33rd in NSCS Driver Points. He is trailing Landon Cassill by 10 points and ahead of teammate Dave Blaney by eight points.

“We struggled a bit with the handling but could have had a decent finish,” explained Reutimann. “It was disappointing that we couldn’t finish the race. Tommy’s team is usually good here, so I think we had a chance of improving the handling for a solid finish. Thanks to Mohawk Northeast, Relyco and TMone for their support. We’ll go out and try to make something happen at Indy in two weeks.”

Reutimann and the No. 10 team will have a weekend off and return to racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday, July 29.
