MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Michael Waltrip Racing will use the No.
55 on the Toyota that will be shared next season by Mark Martin and
Michael Waltrip.

The number is associated with sponsor Aaron's, which was founded in 1955 by Charlie Loudermilk. The company has been a Waltrip sponsor since 2000.

Martin is scheduled to drive 25 races next season for MWR beginning with the season-opening Daytona 500. Waltrip is signed up for seven races, and has used the No. 55 in four previous seasons.

The car had used No. 00 for driver David Reutimann. He was let go to make room for Martin and Waltrip to share the ride.
