Reed Sorenson Quotes:

"We definitely gained some momentum last weekend. The Discount Tire team had started to feel the pressure of getting the finishes we knew we were capable of and we did that in Charlotte. We went and tested at Dover earlier this season, which is good because I have never been to that track before. I think the test was successful but most of all it gave me a chance to run the track and get used to it. I am ready for another top-five finish this weekend and hopefully another win."
