MOORESVILLE, NC (February 4, 2010) – Braun Racing is pleased to announce the return of Beringer Vineyards to their sponsor line-up for the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. The California-based Beringer Vineyards, which is returning to Braun Racing for its fourth year, will serve as a primary sponsor of the team’s No. 10 entry for three races in 2010. Veteran driver David Reutimann will once again pilot the No. 10 Beringer Vineyards Toyota Camry in those three events, which include Auto Club Speedway in February, Texas Motor Speedway in April and Chicagoland Speedway in July.
Reutimann has been a familiar face in the Nationwide Series since 2002. In 113 cumulative Nationwide Series starts, the Zephyrhills, Fla.-native has collected one win (Memphis Motorsports Park, 2007), 16 top-five and 40 top-10 finishes as well as three pole awards. In each of his four races behind the wheel of the Beringer Vineyards Camry in 2009, he posted top-10 finishes.
Beringer Vineyards looks forward to their continued partnership with Braun Racing.
"We are happy to continue our marketing partnership with Braun Racing for a fourth year," said Francesca Schuler, Chief Marketing Officer, Beringer Winery. "They have done a tremendous job in promoting Beringer Vineyards to NASCAR fans nationwide. As for David Reutimann, we feel that he is a tremendous asset. In addition to being a very talented driver, he is a great representative for our brand. We feel very fortunate to have him as a part of the Beringer family and we are thrilled to be able to work with him for a second year. We all look forward to watching him drive the Beringer Vineyards Toyota to victory lane in 2010."
Reutimann is pleased to have the opportunity to carry the Beringer Vineyards colors and to be able to continue competing in the Nationwide Series, if only on a limited basis.
"I’m excited to have the opportunity to join forces with Braun Racing and Beringer Vineyards for another season," said Reutimann. "Braun Racing is a first-class operation with a great group of people to support it. That is the reason they have been able to grow and expand into four full-time teams for 2010. I look forward to working with them again next season and competing to give Beringer their first win as a primary sponsor in the Nationwide Series."
