SORENSON'S SIGHTS SET ON RECORD NATIONWIDE SERIES WINS AT GATEWAY

* Reed Sorenson returns to the site of his debut with the No. 32 Dollar General team...Gateway International Raceway (GIR)! Last season, Sorenson joined forces with crew chief, Trent Owens, and the Dollar General team to start second and finish second at GIR in his first appearance behind the wheel of the No. 32 Toyota Camry.

* Ready for the history books...and a hat trick! This weekend Sorenson is looking to make history by earning his third career win at the 1.25-mile track, becoming the Nationwide Series driver with the most wins there. He is currently tied with Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards with two wins each.

* Chassis #043 is heads to GIR! This weekend, the Dollar General team heads to Gateway with chassis #43. This chassis was last seen on track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in June, when Sorenson started 12th and finished eighth. The car made its track debut in November, 2009 at Phoenix International Raceway. Sorenson has been the only driver to pilot chassis #43.

* The Dollar General team is SIXTH in the Nationwide Series Championship Owner's Points.

Sorenson on driving at Gateway International Raceway:

"I've been looking forward to this race all summer. I grew up racing on short tracks and although Gateway isn't necessarily a short track, it's a fast track for as flat as it is. Gateway just seemed to fit my driving style the first time I raced there in 2005 and it's been good to me since. You definitely have to use some finesse when you are driving this track. You can't overdrive it. You're out of the gas for a long time. I tend to like tracks where you have to get your braking right on entry, where you have to brake hard and have your car free enough to come off the corners as well."
