Worsham prior to Reading:

"We made some progress at Sonoma and then a little more at Brainerd so I think we are continuing to move in the right direction. When we tested before Brainerd, I think that really helped our guys learn a few more things about the car and how it reacts to the changes we make. We have two races left before the field is set for the countdown so it's officially crunch time. I really appreciate how hard our guys have worked all season to get our team where we all know it can be. I've never won a race at Reading, and I can't think of a better time to get back to victory circle than this weekend."
