* Reutimann returns to the seat of the No. 10 Beringer Vineyards Toyota...This weekend Beringer Vineyards returns as primary sponsor of Braun Racing's No. 10 Toyota with David Reutimann behind the wheel. This will mark the fourth year of the team's partnership with the Napa, Calif.-based vineyard. In addition to this weekend's O'Reilly 300, Beringer will be featured on the hood of the No. 10 Toyota at Chicagoland Speedway in July.

* Reutimann at Texas Motor Speedway, by the numbers... Reutimann has proved to be a strong contender at the 1.5-mile tri-oval. In seven NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at Texas Motor Speedway, he has logged three top-10 finishes and has one pole to his credit (fall, 2007). His best performance occurred in the spring, 2007 race in which he posted a sixth-place finish after starting seventh. He has an average start of 11.7, an average finish of 14.3 and has completed 1388 of 1400 laps. In Camping World Truck Series competition at Texas, Reutimann has been impressive with three top-five and five top-10 finishes in six starts. On the Sprint Cup side, Reutimann has one top-10 finish with an average start of 15.0 and an average finish of 24.2. One year ago, he captured the pole and went on to finish 11th.

Reutimann on returning to the seat of the Beringer Camry

"I'm excited to get back into one of the Braun Racing cars this weekend. I really enjoy racing with Stewart Cooper (crew chief) and those guys. They always bring a fast car to the race track that is capable of being a real contender for the win. Texas is a great track with a lot of three and four-wide racing. It's a lot of fun for the drivers, as well as the fans. I would really like to take Beringer Vineyards to victory lane before the end of the season and I can't think of a better place to do it than here in "The Lone Star State."

Equipment Information

The No. 10 Beringer team will hit the track with chassis #044 in this weekend's O'Reilly 300. This is the same chassis Reutimann piloted in his last race with the No. 10 team at Auto Club Speedway, where he started 11th and finished 26th. Kasey Kahne drove this chassis in the November event at TMS, where he started from the fourth position and led for one lap before a suspension failure took him out of contention.
