Reed Sorenson Quotes:

"After testing at Lowe's earlier this month we are really looking forward to the race this weekend. We had some bad luck these past few weeks getting caught up in other people's problems. Hopefully this weekend we can get back out there and have a solid top-10 finish. The Discount Tire crew has been working hard and we're all looking forward to getting the car back in contention to win races."
