NASCAR's David Reutimann Dishes on the 2011 Season and a New Contest Offering the Chance to Win The Right To Be Grand Marshal of the TUMS Fast Relief 500!

The ribs and spicy sauce, the hotdogs and ketchup, the lemonade and beer. The roar of the engines, the cheering, the packed stands, and the snack bars. It’s summer – time for barbeque and NASCAR! It’s also prime time for heartburn. But you don’t have to let summer fun trigger uncomfortable symptoms.

David Reutimann, the driver of the No. 00 TUMS Toyota, chats about the NASCAR season, as well as a new contest that we can enter.

Reutimann is a NASCAR veteran, marking his fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup season. Expectations are high for Reutimann, as he returns with the same crew chief who helped lead him to his second Sprint Cup win in 2010 at Chicagoland Speedway.

The call for entries for the “Sing Your Heart(burn) Out” contest is going on now. Among other great prizes, the winner will earn the privilege of serving as the Grand Marshal at the TUMS Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 30, 2011. The Grand Marshal will speak the most famous words in racing: “Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!”

Contestants have the opportunity to perform and submit the best “TUMS, Ta, Ta, Ta, TUMS” jingle. Each submission will be judged on one-third creativity, one-third originality and one-third relevance to the theme.

In 2011, David Reutimann enters his fifth full NASCAR Sprint Cup season driving Michael Waltrip Racing’s Toyota Camry sporting the traditional Reutimann family No. 00 and the equally familiar paint scheme. The 40-year-old Reutimann also competes with his crew chief of three years, Rodney Childers, and a largely intact No. 00 crew from the previous season. In 2010, Reutimann’s fifth-place finish in the season opening Daytona 500 set a career best in NASCAR’s most prestigious event and also captured his second Sprint Cup win at Chicagoland Speedway.

What's Cookin' Today Hour TWO:

We're Visiting Graton Ridge Cellars with General Manager Sue Bonzell

Since 1945 the Paul family has been inviting visitors to their family location for a taste of the Russian River Valley. In early years, fresh apple juice and apples enticed travelers and locals alike to stop by and fill their cars with the sweet aroma of Sonoma County’s famous Gravenstein apple. Many of those families made the ranch an annual excursion and they looked forward to visits from the folks they fondly called "regulars." As times have changed, so too has the farm; bins of apples have given way to bins of grapes, and the rustic farm stand has been refurbished into a more modern facility. Today, visitors to the ranch taste the flavor of the Russian River Valley through their proprietary wines.

As a small family operation, led by Owners Art and Barbara Paul, three generations participate in the cultivation of premium grapes on the Sonoma County estate. The Paul family vineyard is planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonay and Sauvignon Blanc. With the guidance of winemaker, Nick Legg, they transform some of the best wine grapes in the region into handcrafted wines. Each vintage is produced with utmost attention to detail. Nick brings his years of experience to the ranch, helping to capture a bountiful harvest – and the ove of the land – in a glass for your enjoyment.
