Dozens of drivers failed NASCAR inspection in their first attempt and were forced to go around and try again. Thirteen of them failed to make a time trial lap, including such big names as Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart, and Jeff Gordon.
Regan Smith, Jeb Burton, Cole Whitt, Landon Cassill, and Alex Bowman were also affected, but they had enough owner points from last year to make the show. The same was not true for Reed Sorenson, Mike Wallace, Matt DiBenedetto, and Michael Annett. They are the four drivers who will miss the show. Feb 27 - 7:04 PM

Reed Sorenson’s average finish on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks improved by nearly five positions in the second half of the 2014 season. He went from 33.6 in the first five races on this track type to 28.8 at the end.

Sorenson is racing for a new team with limited experience, so he is unlikely to be a great value this week, but fantasy owners should do research on every driver in the field.

After wrecking Team Xtreme's only speedway car in Coors Light Pole Qualifying on Sunday, Reed Sorenson didn't know whether his dream of a sixth start in the Daytona 500 was over.

"I don’t know if we’ll try to get a car up here or what they’ll try to do," Sorenson said. "But as of right now, we don’t have a back-up car." What the team did was called "a miracle" by team foreman Ben Leslie. Fighting the clock and adverse conditions near the shop, the No. 44 Golden Corral Chevrolet SS was rebuilt.-NASCAR.com

Reed Sorenson does not have a backup available and may not be able to field a car in Thursday’s Gatorade Duels in Daytona.

The team will scramble to see if they can get a second car, but even if they manage to get in that show, they will have to race into the Daytona 500 by placing among the top contenders, which will be a long shot in a backup car.

Reed Sorenson is getting "xtreme" for the 2015 Daytona 500 as he joins John Cohen's Team Xtreme Racing.

Sorenson joins the team after competing full-time with Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2014. Heading into the sport's most prestigious race of the season, Team Xtreme Racing is also proud to welcome Golden Corral onboard as primary sponsor of the No. 44 Chevrolet. Returning to the organization to resume crew chief duties will be 20-year NASCAR veteran Peter Sospenzo.-140 BUZZ

Reed Sorenson is set to make his first start at Homestead since 2009. He finished 40th with crash damage that year racing for Richard Petty Motorsports.

Sorenson attempted to qualify in 2011 for Robby Gordon and 2012 for Archie St Hilaire, but failed to make the show. His best finish of 16th came in 2006, racing for another owner Chip Ganassi, so he has a lot of experience dialing in an assortment of cars.

Reed Sorenson had the second-slowest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k. He posted a speed of 132.480 mph from his laps eight through 17.

Sorenson has shown a tendency to improve in race conditions and has one of the best average improvements over his starting position, but his relatively slow speed in practice makes him a difficult selection as a dark horse.

Reed Sorenson has been gradually improving on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014. His first three starts at Vegas, Texas, and Kansas were in the 30s; his latest five attempts all ended in the mid- to high-20s.

Sorenson’s best finish was a 26th in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas, which puts him on the cusp of scoring a top-25. He has also shown the greatest improvement on average from his starting position to finish, so he could be one of this week’s hidden fantasy gems.

Reed Sorenson finished 34th in this spring’s STP 500 at Martinsville. That was a modest result, but was still better than his last four attempts on this track.

Most of Sorenson’s efforts in the past three years have included parking early, but the Tommy Baldwin Racing teams attempt to go the full distance each week. This spring, Sorenson was running at end of the race, but he was eight laps off the pace.

Joe Nemechek had his time disallowed by NASCAR because of an oil tank encasement that was improperly sealed. Reed Sorenson was the first driver who failed to make the show, so Nemechek’s disqualification elevates the No. 36 into to the field.

Now that he is in the show, anything can happen and Sorenson has an equal opportunity to finish among the top 20 as another dark horse. He will be one of the best bargains in salary cap games.

If Reed Sorenson finishes the Bank of America 500 this week, it will be his best result at Charlotte since 2010. He has made two starts there in the last four years and failed to finish both times.

Annett parked early in fall 2012 and blew an engine this spring; he finished in the 40s both times. So far in 2014 he has shown the best improvement in race trim after qualifying 35.7 on average and finishing 30.3. He starts 30th for Saturday night’s Bank of America 500.

Reed Sorenson got off to a slow start on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with results in the low- to mid-30s in his first three races at Vegas, Texas, and Kansas. His last three efforts have all ended in top-30s at Kentucky, Atlanta, and Chicagoland.

Sorenson has a good shot at finishing in the top 30 again this week. He qualified 30th for the Hollywood Casino 400 and has finished better than he started in his last 11 races this season.

Reed Sorenson has finished in the 30st in five of six flat track races this season. His best result was a 31st at Phoenix and his most recent Pocono attempt ended in a 34th.

Sorenson has been quietly recording laps, but until he begins to regularly crack the top 20 on a given track type it will be difficult to place him on a fantasy roster.

If his past flat track efforts this year are an indication, fantasy players should expect Reed Sorenson to finish somewhere in the 30s in the Crown Royal 400.

Four of Sorenson’s five flat track races ended in a narrow band from 31st at Phoenix to a pair of 34ths at Martinsville and Pocono. The only time he failed to finish in this range was because of a blown tire at Richmond. Sorenson is often overlooked in fantasy racing, but predictability is always welcome.

Zing Zang Bloody Mary will sponsor the No. 36 Chevrolet of Reed Sorenson in four high-profile races this season: Indianapolis on July 27, Charlotte Motor Speedway on Oct. 11, Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 19 and Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 26.

The No. 36 of Sorenson will sport a bright green and black paint scheme to align with Zing Zang Bloody Mary's bright, fresh ingredients used in their flavorful mixes. Zing Zang Bloody Mary, their flagship mix, is one of the most popular Bloody Mary Mixes in North America.-140 BUZZ
