Sorenson Will Finish 2011 Season

Reed Sorenson will remain in the No. 82 MacDonald Motorsports Dodge Challenger for the final three races of the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. After splitting with Turner Motorsports three weeks ago, Sorenson joined MacDonald Motorsports for the last two races at Kansas and Charlotte. The team is seeking sponsorship to help finish the season.

“I’m really happy to have Reed in the No. 82 for the final three races,” said MacDonald Motorsports co-owner Randy MacDonald. “He’s a great racer and I want to try and help him finish the season out. If we can get some more sponsorship on the car for these last few races, it would be a big help.”

Two weeks ago at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Sorenson drove the Crusader Staffing/THINK PINK No. 82 Dodge, qualifying 15th and running in the Top-15 for much of the race before finishing 32nd. His season to date includes one win, seven Top-5 and 18 Top-10 finishes. He currently sits fifth in the 2011 Nationwide Series standings.

    It is about time some see that he has the ability to drive. Just sorry he has gotten some bad equipment. Drive your butt off Reed.

    Before the split, he was sitting third in Nationwide points. They knew he could drive, but something happened internally in that organization between driver, management, team.....something, being that far up in points and just saying thats it? With sponsorship in place to finish out the season? I hope for good things for Reed, although his quest for a Nationwide championship is now derailed, but hopefully he can attract a sponsor and team for a full time ride for next year.
