REED SORENSON QUOTES:

"I am looking forward to racing this weekend at Pikes Peak. This is another track that I have not run at yet and it is always fun to try out a new track. We have been able to stay close in points to Martin (Truex Jr.) and Clint (Bowyer) and another solid run this weekend will keep us in the top three. The Discount Tire team is getting ready to go test several tracks in an effort to learn all we can for the last half of the season. Hopefully we will be able to gain the knowledge we need to win the championship."
