Reed Sorenson has made two previous starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with a best of 27th last week at Kansas Speedway.
Sorenson’s other attempt on the 1.5-milers this year ended in a 31st at Texas Motor Speedway, so it would seem to be a good bet that he could finish in the range of about 30th this week. With a full field expected, he could be a decent value if he qualifies 35th or worse and earns place-differential points to go along with his race finish points. May 23 - 12:38 PM

Reed Sorenson has finished in the 30s in four of his last five attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

That is most likely where he will finish this week, but Sorenson’s latest attempt at Kansas Speedway came last fall and he finished 25th, within four laps of the leader. He was racing for this same team at the time.
May 9 - 5:17 PM

Reed Sorenson has made five attempts with Premium Motorsports on restrictor-plate, superspeedways and scored one top-25.

Sorenson’s single top-25 on plate tracks came in the 2016 Coke Zero 400. Considering how kind this course type can be to dark horses, that is a record that does not stand up and Sorenson should be avoided in all games.

Reed Sorenson finished 33rd and 30th in Richmond Raceway’s two races last year.

Sorenson’s two best finished with Premium Motorsports was a 26th in fall 2016 and a 30th last fall. He has not been quite as strong in the spring, so fantasy owners can expect a result in the low- to mid-30s this week.

Four drivers have been penalized 15 minutes of practice time in the first session for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway after failing inspection last week at Texas Motor Speedway.

Jamie McMurray, Kyle Larson, Paul Menard, and Reed Sorenson will have to park their car during the last 15 minutes of the session and their crew will not be able to work on them. That is not likely to create much of an issue on this half-mile bullring.
Apr 13 - 12:08 PM

Two of Reed Sorenson’s last three races at Bristol Motor Speedway ended in the high-20s.

With this same team, Sorenson finished 27th in fall 2016 and 28th last spring at Bristol. His 38th last fall was due to a failed transmission and that suggests Sorenson could be a great dark horse if he stays out of trouble.

Driving for Premium Motorsports, Reed Sorenson will make his first start on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in 2018.

Last year with this team, Sorenson started all 10 similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races and had a best result of 25th in both Kansas Speedway events. His average is closer to 30th, however, and his latest Texas Motor Speedway effort netted a 31st.
Apr 6 - 12:01 PM

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.

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.
