Sorenson Dominates in Nashville

Reed Sorenson claimed his first Busch victory on only his eleventh appearance in the series, winning by an astonishing 14.417 seconds lead in the Pepsi 300 at the Nashville Superspeedway

"We came into this weekend going after a top-five," the nineteen year old rookie said after the race, "but when we unloaded we knew we were fast and our goals changed.

"My crew chief, Brian Pattie, was a little nervous, but I was just running smooth laps every time and tried to make my marks. When you're out ahead you don't have to push the issue - they didn't want me to abuse the car or the tires."

Sorenson, who claimed pole for the event, led 197 of the 225 laps at the 1.33 mile circuit and was never seriously troubled by anyone. The win bumps Sorenson up to second in the championship standings, behind leader Carl Edwards.
