Toyota motorsport boss visits MWR
Lee White, who oversees Toyota's U.S. racing programs, was at Michael Waltrip Racing at 7:30 a.m. today to help the team improve its performance.

Waltrip has failed to make the past three Cup races. Dale Jarrett has needed to use his champion's provisional to make each of the first four races. Rookie David Reutimann has made two of the first four races.

"We're looking at trying to plug something in without question, and admittedly, as a result of Michael Waltrip's disaster," White said before Sunday's race. "I don't see it as a disaster so much as I see it as an opportunity for us to go ahead and do something that we've been kind of held away from doing up until now."

White said a few Toyota engineers will work with Waltrip's team and build a car that could be ready for Charlotte in May.

"Charlotte is probably a realistic goal to see something that might be able to be delivered to the race track -- and it may not be the car; it may be the process that comes with the car," White said.
