Braun's Sprint Debut, Driven by Sorenson and Vickers

The first take of Braun Racing at this year's Sprint Cup will be headed by former Ganassi and Richard Petty Motorsports racer Reed Sorenson, who will drive the Dollar General Toyota Camry in the five races for the team in 2010. He will share the car with Brian Vickers, now in his fourth consecutive season with Braun. Crew chief for the Dollar General team will be Trent Owens.

“I look forward to returning to Braun Racing and the No. 32 Dollar General car,” Sorenson said. “Braun Racing is a great organization and I am excited to be a part of its future. I know they will provide me with the opportunities that every driver wants – to be in solid equipment and to win races. I’m also honored to be driving for Dollar General, one of the top teams in the NNS. 2010 looks very bright indeed.”

“I am happy to be back with Braun Racing and Dollar General in 2010. It is a family that I am honored to be a part of. Crew chief Trent Owens and I have great chemistry and our team has a rock solid foundation going into next season," Vickers added.

"Running in the Nationwide Series is a lot of fun. I’m able to run at tracks where I know we will run well together, focusing on putting the car in victory lane. We came close to a few wins in 2009 and we will capitalize on what we learned for a great 2010.”

The team, car and driver will debut at the Daytona 500 event, followed by presences at Atlanta, Chicagoland, Indianapolis and Charlotte.

"Fielding a car in the Daytona 500 has been one of my life-long dreams," team owner Todd Braun concluded. "It is incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to realise that dream."
