Braun Racing has announced the return of Beringer Vineyards to its sponsor line-up for the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series season, with the company set to act as primary sponsor on the #10 entry of David Reutimann.
Beringer Vineyards had its first taste of NASCAR sponsorship in 2007 when it served as the primary sponsor of the #10 Braun Racing entry in one Nationwide Series event and then expanded its marketing partnership with Braun Racing to three events as primary sponsor with driver Kyle Busch in 2008.
“David Reutimann is an extremely talented driver, having finished as high as second in the Nationwide Series standings in 2007 and seventh last season,” Barry Sheridan, vice president of marketing for Beringer Vineyards, said. “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.”
Reutimann himself said he was pleased to have the opportunity to carry the Beringer Vineyards colours into his limited schedule in 2009.
“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,” he said. “Braun Racing is a top-notch organisation 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.”
