Reed Sorenson Quotes:

"The team has really been working hard to make sure we have the finishes we need to be in the top-five in the points standings. We had a really good test at Richmond earlier this month. I am looking forward to taking the Discount Tire Dodge to RIR for the race this weekend, and hopefully get a top-five finish. The past few weeks we have had some bad luck, and we are hoping to turn it around this Friday the 13th."
