* Sorenson is back in the No. 32 Dollar General Toyota this weekend at Richmond International Raceway (RIR). Sorenson is set to make his fifth start of 23 races in 2010 in the No. 32 Camry. He currently has two top-five and three top-10 finishes. Sorenson will next pilot the No. 32 Camry when the Nationwide Series heads to Dover (May, 2010).

* Sorenson will make his sixth NASCAR Nationwide Series start at RIR. He has started outside of the top-10 only once, with his best start of ninth coming three times (May, 2005, May, 2006 and September, 2006). Sorenson has one top-five and three top-10 finishes and has led four laps around the 0.75-mile track.

* Racing for more than the hardware at RIR! Dollar General has partnered with Autism Speaks to increase the awareness of autism and raise funds for autism research and advocacy. Dollar General kicked off the month-long campaign with a $50,000 donation and will make an additional $50,000 donation to Autism Speaks for every race won by Sorenson in the No. 32 Dollar General car in April. This weekend marks the last event during Autism Awareness Month.

* Autism hits home at Braun Racing. This campaign is extra-special to the Braun Racing family as crew chief Trent Owens' son was diagnosed with autism last year.

* The Dollar General team heads to RIR with chassis #043. Last seen on-track at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) in April, 2010, this chassis made its racing debut in 2009 at PIR.

Reed Sorenson on Richmond International Raceway:

"I like Richmond a lot. The racing there keeps getting better and better as the asphalt gets older because the groove seems to be getting wider. It is a lot of fun for a driver because we can run two-wide and move around the track to see where the car works best. Richmond is one of the coolest tracks where you can run side-by-side and give the fans a good show. It's a good size track with just enough banking to give it some speed and really great racing."
