Reed Sorenson heads to Nashville Superspeedway this weekend, looking to score another Sam Bass-designed Gibson Guitar! In his debut race at the 1.333-mile track in March, 2005, Sorenson claimed BOTH his first NASCAR Nationwide Series pole position AND win after leading for 197 of the 225 laps!
- Kicking off Autism Awareness Month! Braun Racing is supporting sponsor, Dollar General, and its partnership with Autism Speaks to increase the awareness of autism and raise funds for autism research and advocacy by displaying the Autism Speaks logo on each of the four Braun Racing entries in the NASCAR Nationwide Series during the month of April.
- 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 or Brian Vickers in the No. 32 Dollar General car in April. How can you help? Throughout April, Dollar General will offer their customers the opportunity to make donations to Autism Speaks during check-out.
- You’re not seeing double… Kicking off Autism Awareness Month at Nashville Superspeedway, the No. 11 Camry, driven by Rookie of the Year candidate Brian Scott, will join Sorenson and the No. 32 team in sporting the Dollar General colors in a cool reverse paint scheme!
- 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.
- This weekend marks Sorenson’s fifth NNS start at Nashville Superspeedway. In his four previous starts, he has started inside of the top-10 three times, including a Coors Light Pole Award in March, 2005. He has two top-five finishes, including a win, and has finished outside the top-20 only once.
- The No. 32 Dollar General team is currently FIFTH in the NNS owner’s point standings.
- Chassis #45 is ready for action in the Music City! The Dollar General team heads to Nashville with chassis #045, a new chassis that is making its debut on the track this weekend.
Sorenson on returning to Nashville:
“I love racing at Nashville Superspeedway. It’s been four years since I’ve raced here and I’m really excited to be back! To drive the Dollar General Toyota into victory lane at the track where I got my first win would be very special. Not only would I love to add a second guitar to my collection, but it would be an honor to get Dollar General a win at their home track.”
Owens on Dollar General’s partnership with Autism Speaks:
“I was really excited to hear about Dollar General’s partnership with Autism Speaks. There are still so many unknowns with this disorder, which as a parent of a child with autism is one of the biggest challenges. There are still a lot of ‘why’s’ and ‘how’s’ and this organization is dedicated to funding research into answering those questions. Every trip to victory lane is special, but putting the No. 32 car into victory lane during Autism Awareness Month will make it extra-special, thanks to Dollar General and their generosity.”
