* Sorenson is ready to slay the "Monster Mile!" He has a solid record at the one-mile race track, finishing outside of the top-10 on only one occasion! He owns three top-five and six top-10 finishes and has led for seven laps in his seven Nationwide Series starts. Sorenson has an impressive average finish of 8.7 and an average starting position of 12.0. In his most recent round at Dover International Speedway (September, 2009), he drove Braun Racing's No. 10 entry to a seventh-place finish.

* Sorenson and crew chief, Trent Owens, are Driving for Autism! Driving down the fairway that is! They will be playing in the ninth annual Drive for Autism Golf Tournament on Thursday, May 13 at the DuPont Country Club in Wilmington, DE. Not only is this a great cause, but it is one that hits close to home. Owens' three-year old son, Gray, was diagnosed last year with autism.

* Sorenson will join fellow NASCAR drivers for a social at Dover Air Force Base. Friday night, Sorenson will visit with troops and their families at Dover AFB, signing autographs from 6:30 -- 7:30 pm ET.

* Braun Racing teams to host soldiers for Saturday's Heluva Good! 200. A number of NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) teams are joining forces to host wounded soldiers as their guests for the NNS race at Dover International Speedway.

* Chassis #40 heads to Dover! The Dollar General team will unload chassis #040 this weekend at Dover International Speedway. This chassis was last seen on track at Texas Motor Speedway (April, 2010) where Sorenson drove it to a third-place finish. It previously saw track time this season at Bristol Motor Speedway (March, 2010) and Las Vegas Motor Speedway (February, 2010). This car has qualified AND finished inside of the top-10 for seven of its nine races!

* The Dollar General team heads to Dover FIFTH in the Nationwide Series Championship Owner's Points.

Reed Sorenson on racing at the "Monster Mile":

"I'm looking forward to heading to Dover this weekend with the Dollar General team. The track is a ton of fun to race. It's really tight which makes passing challenging. It's also a lot like a one-mile Bristol with the concrete surface and steep banking. You can run low, high or anywhere on the track that you need to make the car work. Because it's a self-cleaning race track so you have to stay on your toes when a wreck does happen. Dover produces some good racing and I'm sure this Saturday it will deliver the same."
