Down with Dover: Sorenson has four starts at "The Monster Mile" -- three in Busch Series competition and one in NEXTEL Cup. His Busch stats included a runner-up finish, a fourth-place effort and 10th in the spring of this year. His only NEXTEL Cup start at the track resulted in a 19th-place finish.

Sorenson has captured rookie of the race honors in five of the 27 races run thus far in '06 (Atlanta -- 10th, Martinsville -- 12th, Michigan -- fifth, Chicagoland -- seventh, Michigan 2 - eighth).

Reed Sorenson on Dover...

"Dover has been a good track for us. We've had really good runs in the Busch car and we had a solid effort in the Cup car there in the spring. Both teams have been performing well the last few weeks, so I expect us to be competitive this weekend. Even though we don't have the best finishes to show for it, there seems to be a lot of momentum building for our programs and I believe a win is in our future for one if not both teams."

"Dover reminds me of a bigger Bristol. It's concrete, high-banked and extremely fast. It's one of those self-cleaning type of tracks, so if something happens in front of you it typically washes to the bottom of the track before you get there. The track is pretty fun to race on, if your car is handling well. If it's off, especially loose on corner exit, then it can be a handful.
