* Chassis #54 is ready to head to Kansas! The Dollar General team will unload chassis #054 this weekend at Kansas Speedway. Last seen on track at Atlanta Motor Speedway (September, 2010), this car made its debut this year at Charlotte Motor Speedway (May, 2010) and finished inside of the top-10 in each of its first three races! Sorenson drove it to a fifth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway and eighth-place finishes at both Charlotte and Chicagoland. Unfortunately at Atlanta, the Dollar General team's night ended early as the No. 32 made hard contact with the inside wall, relegating Sorenson to a 34th-place finish at his home track.
* The Dollar General team heads to Kansas SIXTH in the Nationwide Series Championship Owner's Points.
Reed Sorenson on Kansas Speedway:
"The Dollar General team has had consistent success at the mile and a half tracks this year. With the exception of Atlanta, where we were running well before we fell out, we haven't finished any worse than eighth. I like Kansas Speedway a lot. It's a wide track with multiple grooves which makes for fast and fun racing. Trent [Owens, crew chief] and the guys work really hard to bring great cars to the race track every week. I think we'll unload fast and then it's just a matter of tweaking with the handling to get it just right. We are coming off of two top-five finishes. I think the momentum is there with this team right now and we are ready to use that to our advantage."
