Sorenson on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

"Phoenix is a lot of fun to race at. It's fast and flat, and there is usually a lot of excitement when an accident happens. It definitely keeps a driver on his toes. I think the key to running well here begins with starting as close to the front as possible."

Sorenson on returning to Phoenix with the Dollar General team:

"The Dollar General team and I had a really good run here last fall. We ran the same car then that we're bringing this weekend. That race, it handled nearly perfect. With two races left in the season, I think we are really clicking as a team. We have a lot of momentum going into Phoenix and I think this weekend we'll have another solid performance and hopefully, bring home a win!"

Sorenson on returning to Turner Motorsports for 2011:

"Last week we announced that I'll be returning to Turner Motorsports next year. I'm really excited to be back and can't wait to run for the 2011 Nationwide Series Driver Championship. With the tools that Mr. Turner has put into place for next year, I think all of the Turner teams will be really strong and able to contend for the win every week. The Nationwide Series is going to be a lot of fun to drive in next year. I think the level of competition will be very high and you should see a lot of exciting races."

* Chassis #43 celebrates its one year birthday at PIR! The Dollar General team will unload chassis #043 this weekend at Phoenix. The car made its track debut in November, 2009 at PIR where Sorenson started ninth and finished third. This chassis was last raced at Gateway International Raceway in July, where it finished second. It previously saw track time this season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in June (eighth), Richmond in April (eighth) and Phoenix in April (12th). Sorenson has been the only driver to pilot chassis #43.

* The No. 32 Dollar General team is currently SIXTH in the NNS owner's point standings.
