BERINGER VINEYARDS RETURNS TO BRAUN RACING AS PRIMARY SPONSOR IN 2009
MOORESVILLE, NC (January 16, 2009) -- Braun Racing is pleased to announce the return of Beringer Vineyards to their sponsor line-up for the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. The California based, Beringer Vineyards, will serve as the primary sponsor of Braun Racing's No. 10 Toyota Camry to be driven by veteran driver, David Reutimann, in four Nationwide Series races in 2009.
Beringer Vineyards had their first taste of NASCAR sponsorship in 2007 when they served as the primary sponsor of the No.10 Braun Racing entry in one Nationwide Series event. Last season, they expanded their marketing partnership with Braun Racing to three events as primary sponsor with driver, Kyle Busch behind the wheel of the "merlot" colored Camry.
Reutimann, who will pilot the No.10 Beringer Camry at California Speedway in February, Texas Motor Speedway in April, Michigan International Speedway in August and Phoenix International Raceway in November, has been a familiar face in the Nationwide Series since 2002. In 101 cumulative series starts, the Zephyrhills, Fla. native has collected one win (Memphis Motorsports Park, 2007), 15 top-five and 34 top-10 finishes as well as three pole awards. Currently, Reutimann drives full-time for Michael Waltrip in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, piloting the No. 00 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota.
"David Reutimann is an extremely talented driver, having finished as high as second in the Nationwide Series standings in 2007 and seventh last season. We feel very fortunate to have him represent Beringer Vineyards during the 2009 racing season. With a talent like him behind the wheel, we look forward to watching the Beringer Camry running up front and competing for wins," said Barry Sheridan, Vice President of Marketing for Beringer Vineyards.
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 am thankful to have the opportunity to join forces with Braun Racing and Beringer Vineyards during the 2009 season in the NASCAR Nationwide Series," said Reutimann. "Braun Racing is a top-notch organization in the Nationwide Series, something I know very well having competed against them over the last couple of years. I look forward to working with them next season and competing to give Beringer their first win as a primary sponsor in the Nationwide Series."
