In 14 starts with Premium Motorsports on short, flat tracks, Reed Sorenson has a best finish of 26th at Richmond International Raceway in fall 2016.
The good news is that Sorenson has finished worse than he started on this track type only twice and half of his results were in the low-30s or better. If he rolls off from the very back of the pack in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, he will earn positive fantasy points in most games. Mar 21 - 1:38 PM

Reed Sorenson will be back in a Cup car driving for Jay Robinson and Premium Motorsports at some point in the next three weeks, the driver confirmed to The Racing Experts.

When asked when his next Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) race was, Sorenson replied, "Martinsville or Texas would be one of the two." He returned to the MENCS for the first time in 2018 Sunday at Auto Club Speedway. He finished in the 34th position, seven laps down. "We’re underdogs in this deal and just like today, we were unable to buy tires all weekend, weren't able to practice because it cost money," Sorenson said.

Reed Sorenson will start the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway from the 35th position with a qualification lap of 181.336 mph.

That makes him the fourth slowest driver to take time, but he was significantly faster than three of those lined up behind him. If a player is going to roll the dice on one of the bargain basement drivers based on track position, Sorenson is a better option than several

Reed Sorenson should contend for a top-30 finish this week, so long as he is able to stay out of trouble

In his last four starts, he has earned three mid-20s finishes and retired with a broken suspension once. He has been at least four laps off the pace each time, however, and that means his results are subject to attrition.

Reed Sorenson has scored one top-30 in six starts this season, but he has come oh-so-close on three other occasions.

Sorenson finished 31st three times. These efforts came at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and Martinsville Speedway, which put him ahead of a quarter of those fields. Sorenson is not flashy, but he does represent an opportunity for fantasy players when he qualifies in the back of the pack.

Reed Sorenson did not qualify for last year’s spring event at Auto Club Speedway, but he was running at the end of both Michigan International Speedway events.

Sorenson was consistent. He lost six laps in June and seven in August to finish in the 30s both times. The same pattern should play out in this week’s Auto Club 400 and his finishing result will be reliant on attrition.

Reed Sorenson will struggle to finish in the top 30 this week, based on his recent performance with similarly-funded teams.

Sorenson has the skill to get in the front half of the pack, as evidenced by his 12th with Richard Petty Motorsports in 2009. One-mile tracks are reliant enough on superior handling and horsepower that come only with a lot of resources and developmental time, however, to make him a questionable proposition.

Reed Sorenson has earned two top-30 finishes on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks with his current Premium Motorsports team.

In nine starts with them, he has been running at the end of every event; all but two of these races ended better than they started to reward positive place-differential points. If he qualifies badly and there is enough attrition, Sorenson could be a good value, but there are too many unknowns to recommend him.

Reed Sorenson made eight starts last year on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and finished in the top 30 twice.

It has been a while since Sorenson was in well-funded equipment, but with Red Bull Racing and Chip Ganassi Racing he earned 14 top-20s. If all goes well, he could challenge for a finish in the mid-20s, but that is not much reward for relatively high risk.

Reed Sorenson and Timmy Hill were the two drivers who failed to qualify for the Daytona 500.

Sorenson was wrecked by Corey Lajoie in his Duel; Hill experienced some sort of mechanical difficulty. Make sure that neither of these drivers is on your roster as a long-shot dark horse.

In the midst of a busy off season that saw Premium Motorsports move its race shop to Mooresville, NC, owner Jay Robinson confirmed to that Reed Sorenson will pilot the No. 55 car beginning with the season-opening Daytona 500 next month, with more races possible, dependent on sponsorship.

Though Sorenson will be competing in the No. 55 car, it is the No. 15 car that has a guaranteed starting position into all 36 races after Premium Motorsports’ purchase of the charter from HScott Motorsports, which shut down over the off-season. The organization decided to keep the number 15, getting rid of the No. 98, which attempted to qualify for 33 races in 2016, 29 with Cole Whitt. Lee Leslie will sit atop the pit box of the No. 55 car. Having no ties with any manufacture, the team will run Toyotas at the four superspeedway races in 2017, moving to Chevrolet in the other 32 events.

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.

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.
