(11/22/09) Michael Waltrip finished 30th in his last race as a full time driver in the Sprint Cup series, in today's Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In victory lane, race winner Denny Hamlin had this to say about the driver of the #55 Napa Auto Parts Camry: "Congratulations to Michael Waltrip on a great career. I was trying to keep him close those last couple laps so I could show some dignity and give him his lap back, but he's done a lot for this sport, and I've got to say congratulations for a great career to him."
David Reutimann's #00 Aaron's Dream Machine finished 15th. After qualifying well and leading for a few laps starting on lap 10, Marcos Ambrose's #47 Little Debbies Toyota suffered a failed carberator and finished sixteen laps down in 35th.
