Reed Sorenson Quotes:

"We had a great run at Nashville last week and took over in the points standings. The Discount Tire team is excited about being the points leader but we are still going to keep our goals of top-five finishes and to stay consistent. We can't take any chances just because we are leading the points and so we'll start out each race like we have all year, steady and consistent."
