No. 41 Discount Tire Team Fast Facts:

Step Up: Although they didn't return to the east coast with quite the finish they had hoped for when heading out west to race in this past weekend's Busch Series race at California Speedway, Reed Sorenson and the No. 41 CGRFS Busch team did manage to take one step closer to the top 10 after finishing 19th in the late-Saturday night event. Sorenson and team gained one position in the overall driver and owner Busch standings. Both now stand 12th. Sorenson is currently 34 points out of 10th and the team is 54 points outside the top 10 heading into the next Busch race at Richmond International Raceway (RIR) this Friday, September 8. The Emerson Radio 250 is scheduled to start at 7:50 p.m. ET and will broadcast live on TNT (TV) and MRN (Radio).

Sorenson comments on heading back to Richmond International Raceway: "The Discount Tire team put me in a great race car the last time we raced at Richmond this year. We had such a great day there and then there isn't much to say about how it ended, except it was really disappointing. It was a rough run all night long. We got hit early on and that sent us from a top-20 run to somewhere inside the top-35. Then we came back from that to only get hit a second time and unfortunately that one did us in, and we only had a little more than 20 laps left to run. I know we were on our way to at least a top-10 night. Hopefully, everyone will practice patience a little more this weekend and race a little bit cleaner."
