Sorenson, Team Extreme Not Finished Yet

Following Sunday's group qualifying session for the Daytona 500, it looked as though Team Xtreme Racing was out of contention, even before Thursday's final fight; the Budweiser Duel qualifiers.

That is apparently not the case, however. The Team Xtreme crew traveled back to their headquarters in Mooresville, N.C., and has worked long hours to prepare a new No. 44 Golden Corral Chevrolet SS for Reed Sorenson to drive in Thursday's Duels.  

Why did the No. 44 Golden Corral team not have a backup already in place?

"A good speedway car is hard to come by," explained Team Xtreme owner John Cohen. "As a smaller team, we buy our cars from the mega-teams. Once they have a good speedway car, that car is kept and used many times.

"The wreck in qualifying was extremely disappointing, but seeing the efforts of everyone on Team Xtreme as they get our backup ready; man, I am excited for Thursday's Duels," Sorenson said. "There is a lot of pressure to race our way in to the 500 but after seeing the support of NASCAR fans on Social Media the past few days, we already feel like winners in their eyes."

  1. They got into the 500 - that's huge for this team.
