Sorenson finished the 2011 ranked fifth in Nationwide Series championship points, despite being released by Turner Motorsports late in the season and finishing the year with MacDonald Motorsports. He is a four-time Nationwide winner, along with two poles and 85 top-10 finishes. He also has seven seasons of experience in the headline Sprint Cup Series, with 15 career Top-10 finishes.
Team owner Jimmy Means commented on the signing, saying, “Means Motorsports is certainly excited about our chances of getting off to a great start this season, especially when you consider Reed's skills, experience, and the strong fifth place finish he had in last year's event. We have had some success with sponsorship for the first race of the season and we can only assume the opportunities will increase with the addition of Sorensen as our driver."
