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. Sep 22 - 1:12 PM

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.

Reed Sorenson is coming off a 28th-place finish in his last attempt on a flat track. He started 40th in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 and added 12 place-differential points to his total.

Often moderately funded teams pick races in which to concentrate their efforts. Since most teams do so on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, focusing on a flat track allows organizations like Premium Motorsports to excel outside of the limelight and makes them great values during those weeks. Unfortunately, this can be very unpredictable.
Jul 14 - 11:54 AM

Reed Sorenson posted the slowest laps consistently in practice for the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway. He was 40th in all three sessions in which he practiced and skipped one.

Sorenson will start Saturday night’s race 39th, but will probably lose that position early and finish last. No matter how cheap he is in any game, there are going to be better options for extending one’s salary cap.

When NASCAR gave 36 teams charters and limited the Sprint Cup field to 40 cars, it was rightly expected that the age of start-and-park racers was over. There are still a few teams that fit the role of utility picks, however, and Premium Motorsports is making a living running in the 30s.

In the past two weeks, Reed Sorenson has been moved from their No. 55 to 98 car. He scored his only top-30 of the season in it at Pocono Raceway two weeks ago. Last week, he finished 31st to narrowly miss that mark. In both cases, he started 40th and practiced near the back, but those 10 place-differential points (on average) really helped the fantasy player’s bottom line.
Jun 16 - 3:55 PM

Reed Sorenson missed last year’s Axalta We Paint Winners 400 and finished only 34th in the August Windows 10 400, but he has had some recent success on this track. In August 2014 he finished 27th in a Tommy Baldwin Racing entry after starting 35th.

Sorenson and the No. 55 were at the bottom of the charts in every session last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but that could mean they were saving their effort and resources for a track on which driver input is a greater part of the equation. Do not write them off just yet.
Jun 2 - 1:07 PM

Reed Sorenson has made six starts in the Cup series this year and nearly all of them have ended in a narrow range of 36th to 40th. He was a provisionally good value at Kansas Speedway, however, with a 33rd after starting 40th.

Anyone who jumped on his bandwagon regretted it the following week, however, as Sorenson crashed out of the AAA 400 just past the halfway point and finished only 38th.
May 20 - 10:49 AM

Reed Sorenson will start 38th in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover in the No 55 Premium Motorsports Chevrolet. This will be the eighth different team for which he has raced in his last nine starts.

In that string of races, Sorenson started twice for Tommy Baldwin Racing and scored one of his better results in recent seasons. He finished 24th in June 2014, which underscored just how important chemistry can be for some racers.
May 14 - 12:27 AM

In the last race on this track type, Reed Sorenson finished 36th at Texas Motor Speedway in the Duck Commander 500, but he was more than 15 laps off the pace when the checkered flag waved.

Sorenson was running at the end of the show, however, and might have made up a little more ground with greater attrition. His best opportunity to score points, however, with be with a positive place-differential if he starts at the tail-end of the field.
May 3 - 10:03 AM

With 41 cars on the entry list for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway, qualification could be an issue for Reed Sorenson this week. In four attempts this year, his best starting position was 38th last week at Bristol.

That placed him ahead of two drivers, but he started last at Martinsville Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway. Do not make any commitments until after time trials, but with a best result of 36th it is unlikely he will be very popular this week.
Apr 21 - 8:38 PM

Reed Sorenson posted the slowest speed in the first practice session for the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 178.112 mph.

Sorenson’s last attempt on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track came at Texas Motor Speedway last fall and he failed to qualify the No. 98. His previous three starts all required provisionals with 42nd-place spots on the grid. He is one driver happy that NASCAR has only 40 cars entered for a 40-car field. He will race on Saturday night, but cannot be considered for any fantasy roster.
