Reed Sorenson qualified for 28 races, but had only one top-25 finish at Daytona International Speedway to show for it.
Sorenson was still moderately fantasy relevant on 20 occasions because he earned positive place-differential points and was running at the end of most of his attempts. Other than his plate result, he was best on the short tracks of Richmond International Raceway and Bristol Motor Speedway, where he narrowly missed the top 25. Wed, Dec 7, 2016 04:16:00 PM

Reed Sorenson will be in the No. 55 Premium Motorsport entry this week, which means he will be forced to qualify on time for the Ford EcoBoost 400.

One reason this is significant is because he failed to qualify in three of his last four attempts on this track. Forty-one drivers are entered this week and one will go home, but Sorenson should be able to find enough speed to make the show.

Reed Sorenson will make his first Phoenix International Raceway start this week since the Fall 2014 contest.

Sorenson was racing for Tommy Baldwin Racing at the time and finished two laps off the pace in 28th; he was 31st earlier that year and 37th in fall 2013. Prior to that, he had not competed in Cup competition since 2009 so he is liable to be a little rusty and is contending with a lightly-funded team. He is not recommended.

Reed Sorenson has scored only two top-35 finishes in his last seven starts since leaving Richard Petty Motorsports.

Several of these efforts were strictly start-and-park, but he has been running at the end of his last three efforts. Sorenson finished 34th last spring and 35th last fall in a 43-car field. He was 37th this spring in a 40-car field, so fantasy players should assume that another top-35 is going to be difficult.

Reed Sorenson will compete at Talladega SuperSpeedway this week in the Cup series for the first time since 2014.

Sorenson ran with several teams last year and was passed over for all of the plate races except the Daytona 500. His last Talladega start ended in a 14th-place finish in the October contest. He has one top-10, which came with Chip Ganassi Racing in 2007 and he narrowly missed that mark with Richard Petty Motorsports. His breadth of experience makes him an interesting choice this week, but Premium Motorsports might not be most fantasy players’ first choice.

With less than 20 minutes remaining in the first practice session for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, Reed Sorenson blew an engine and oiled down the track.

This actually impacts the marquee teams more than Sorenson because it robs them of practice time that was already abbreviated by a persistent morning mist.

Reed Sorenson has finished better than he started in his last four attempts at Kansas Speedway.

Sorenson has improved by five positions on average to record a 32.25 result. Equally important, he has been running at the end of all four races and that has allowed him to move up late in races when attrition becomes a factor.

Reed Sorenson will be lucky to finish in the top 30 at Charlotte. Four of his last five starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks ended outside that mark.

Sorenson had a best of 27th at Kentucky in a race that featured a lot of fresh faces performing better than average. His next-best result on the course type was a 33rd at Kansas Speedway, so that is how he should be handicapped this week.

Reed Sorenson entered this spring’s AAA 400 with a three-race streak of running at the end of a race at Dover International Speedway. He crashed on lap 204 and failed to finish.

Premium Motorsports is making the most of their opportunities, but it is hard to know how they might have fared with a complete race. For now, there are better dark horse contenders to consider in the Citizen Soldier 400.

Reed Sorenson had a reasonably strong finish this July at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He finished 35th after starting 36th, but this is a team that often races with limited resources.

Sorenson was seven laps off the pace at the end of the day and moved up largely by attrition. He will only be used by players who need a bargain basement driver to extend their salary cap, but he should not be completely overlooked.

Reed Sorenson has finished only one of his last three Southern 500 attempts racing for modestly-funded entries. He crossed under the checkers 30th, five laps off the pace, while racing for Frank Stoddard in 2012. He failed to finish in 2010 and 2014—and missed the remainder of the events in that span.

The last time Sorenson went the distance at Darlington, he was racing for Richard Petty Motorsports. He finished on the lead lap in 19th in 2009. Sorenson lacks the laps around this track to be a favorite, but he should earn positive place-differential points.

Reed Sorenson failed to qualify for two races on two-mile tracks in 2015 making attempts for Robby Benton and Jay Robinson. This June, he started last in the FireKeepers Casino 400 and advanced nine positions to finish 31st.

Sorenson will be one of the cheapest options in salary cap games and this team does not always attempt to go the full distance. If June’s race is an indication, Sorenson could be a decent value for players who want guaranteed positive points from their bargain basement driver.

Premium Motorsports has not been very productive on short tracks with Reed Sorenson this year. In three starts on courses less than a mile in length, he finished 37th at Martinsville Speedway and 40th at both Bristol Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway.

Lightly-funded teams often have to decide where to put their effort. Short tracks have apparently not been high on the No. 55’s list of priorities, so Sorenson should be avoided this week.

Reed Sorenson was just starting to show some improvement when the series rolled into Daytona International Speedway to run the Coke Zero 400 this July. He finished 22nd in that race, on the heels of a 28th at Pocono Raceway and 31st at Michigan International Speedway. Since then, his results have steadily declined.

Sorenson finished 27th at Kentucky Speedway, in the mid-30s at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and then blew an engine to finish last at Pocono Raceway. Fantasy owners need to allow this team to reset before starting Sorenson and the No. 55 Premium Motorsports entry.

Reed Sorenson finished 28th this spring in the Axalta 400 at this week’s venue Pocono Raceway, which was his second top-30 in his last four races.

If Sorenson qualifies in the 30s, he will be an even better value since he will almost certainly add place-differential points to his total. With Premium Motorsports, Sorenson has finished better than he started in his last six attempts including a 28th from 40th at Pocono in June and a 33rd from 39th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last week.
