Reed Sorenson on The Monster Mile...

"Our Cup car is the one Casey finished 10th with at the track last year. Jimmy and the guys have a pretty good base to start with on the setup and we'll just work on getting it tuned in for the race. I'm very optimistic that it's going to be a good weekend for the Target team."
