Toby ChristieSenior Analyst IJanuary 15, 2009

We all know that Scott Speed has taken over A.J. Allmendinger's Red Bull Sprint Cup ride for 2009, but no news on who Speed would drive for in the Nationwide Series...Until today.

It was announced that Scott Speed will be sharing the No. 99 with Michael Waltrip, for Michael Waltrip Racing.  Waltrip will drive the majority of the schedule with Aaron's and Best Western on the Toyota, but in the races Speed is at the helm Red Bull will be on the car, according to Waltrip.

It is currently unknown whether David Reutimann, who finished seventh in Nationwide standings, will be back next season.  All initial signs definitely point to no with the current economic times.
