REED SORENSON, No. 32 Dollar General Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Are you looking forward to competing at ORP again? "I haven't been there in a few years. I've had good runs there, gotten the pole there and I think the last time I was there, I finished second (2006). The way the schedule works out, I probably won't get a chance to practice. I might just show up and race, so we'll see how that ends up. That's a track where you have to be patient. There's a lot of beating and banging. It's really, really small."
JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Where does ORP rank among your list of favorite race tracks? "It is my favorite race track. It's a big week. I'll run the USAC Midgets Silver Crown race leading up to it. I'm pretty excited about it. Obviously, we won Toyota's first race in the series at ORP. Eddie Pardue (crew chief), his cars have always been fast there, especially last year, so I'm excited about going there and working with him."
