Reed Sorenson Pilots the Discount Tire Dodge to a Fifth-Place Starting Spot at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 18, 2004) --- Reed Sorenson maneuvered his Discount Tire Dodge around the 2.5-mile tri-oval of Daytona International Speedway in 49.524 seconds and ended up fifth fastest for the Hershey TAKE 5 300 at Daytona International Speedway.

"I'm happy," Sorenson said. "This is the guy's work, right here; qualifying is all them. I told them before I went out, there is two places, here and Talladega, where it's all you guys. I think it will hold up for a top-five at least. The way the wind is right here I think the gear that we had in it actually helped us. I think it worked out pretty well. I think we'll end up okay. I don't think it will be the pole, but I think it will be okay. You always want to start the season off good. I think that's the main thing. You just want to start the season off well and there's always that big wreck that you've got to worry about here and just trying to avoid that."

Sorenson and the Discount Tire Dodge will start fifth on Saturday for his first start at Daytona International Speedway.

The Hershey TAKE 5 300 will be broadcast live on Fox television on Saturday, February 19 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
