* Reed Sorenson has been patiently waiting this season to take the wheel of the No. 32 Dollar General Toyota. This weekend's Scotts Turf Builder 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway will be his first NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race in 2010. Sorenson drove the No. 32 car in two races in 2009, finishing second (Gateway, July) and third (Phoenix, Nov.).

* The No. 32 Dollar General team is currently FOURTH in the NNS owner's point standings.

* This weekend marks Sorenson's eighth NNS start at Bristol Motor Speedway. In seven previous starts, he has started inside the top-15 four times, including starting second in August, 2006. His best finish of third came in his Nationwide Series debut at the 0.533-mile track on April 4, 2005.

* Chassis #40 is ready for some fender rubbin' at Bristol! The Dollar General team heads to Bristol with chassis #040. Last seen on track at Las Vegas (February, 2010), this car made its debut last year at Charlotte Motor Speedway (May, 2009) and has been driven by teammate Brian Vickers in a total of seven races. The car has qualified inside of the top-10 for six of the events and finished outside of the top-15 only once! This weekend marks the first time another driver besides Vickers has climbed behind its wheel.

Sorenson on starting his 2010 season:

"I can't wait to get back behind the wheel of the Dollar General Toyota this weekend! Sitting on the sidelines for the first three races has been incredibly tough and I have felt so restless. The team has gotten off to a great start in 2010 and I am looking forward to keeping that streak going. I've been able to travel with the team and talk a lot with Trent and the guys. It is a fantastic group and we all mesh really well. I think we have a great year ahead of us!"

Sorenson on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"Bristol is a pretty cool track to race at. I've run decent there over the last few years. The tough thing about Bristol is that it's one of those tracks where you can have a great run going, but if you get caught up in someone else's mess, your day can go downhill pretty quick. I finished third in the first Nationwide Series race I entered at Bristol and I'm confident that if we can avoid bad luck, I can get the job done and bring home a good finish for this Dollar General team."
