Target Team Fast Facts:

2-Mile Momentum: Sorenson has some impressive statistics at the two-mile speedways that appear on the NEXTEL Cup and Busch Series schedule (California and Michigan). In three Busch Series and one NEXTEL Cup Series starts at California, Sorenson has one top five and three top 15 finishes. His only finish outside of the top 15 was 21st in his NEXTEL Cup debut at the track in February. Sorenson scored his first career top five at California's sister track, Michigan International Speedway, in June. He went on to back that up just two weeks ago with a seventh-place finish at Michigan in the Busch race and an eighth-place effort in the Cup race. His only finish outside of the top 10 at the track was 36th after experiencing engine problems in last year's Busch race. Sorenson's average finish on the 2-mile tracks in eight starts in either the NEXTEL Cup (3) or Busch Series (5) is 13.5.

Reed Sorenson on California...

"We had a really good run going at California earlier this season but we had a pit road miscue that kept us from getting the finish that we were capable of. That was the second race of the season and we're headed into the 25th. The Target team has come a long way since then, and the one and a half mile to two-mile tracks have been our strongest this season so we're excited to be headed to California this weekend. We're taking a new car this weekend, which is basically a new and improved version of our intermediate cars that have run well so far this season."
