Reed Sorenson and the No. 41 Wrigley's Juicy Fruit Dodge Team Facts:

* Sorenson Gets a 100% at Cali: Reed Sorenson gets a 100% when it comes to completing laps in his Busch Series car at California Speedway. Out of 600 laps of Busch Series competition he's entered, Sorenson has completed them all. When it comes to Busch racing, he also has never finished outside of the top 20, totaling one top-five, one top-10, three top-15 and four top-20 finishes. Out of four Busch Series starts, two have been inside the top five. He also averages a top-15 start and finish in Busch Series competition at California.

* No Time like the First Time: Sorenson's first race at California Speedway, in February 2005, resulted in a fourth-place start and fifth-place finish in the Stater Bros. 300. It was Sorenson's rookie year as a Busch Series driver for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS), and to date still the best start and finish the young racer has at the Fontana-based track.

Juan Pablo Montoya and the No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge Team Facts:

* Familiar Territory, but Different Story: This weekend at California Speedway, Juan Pablo Montoya will be running on a familiar track. He competed at the Fontana track in 1999 and 2000 for his current stock car team owner Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) in the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) Series. The Colombian native totaled two starts that resulted in two top-five beginnings, along with one top-five finish and two top-10s. The 10th-place finish in October of 2000 was achieved after he experienced mechanical problems that forced him out of the race. Only five cars finished all 250 laps of competition that day. Montoya completed 219 to bring home the top 10.
