Reed Sorenson Quotes:

"I am not the biggest fan of restrictor plate racing. So much can happen and it happens faster than on a regular track. I ran really well at Daytona earlier this season and I think the Discount Tire Dodge can be that strong again. We have had a really solid couple of weeks and we are hoping to continue that success this weekend."
