Sorenson will not attempt Atlanta race

Peachtree City native Reed Sorenson will not attempt to make Sunday’s race at AtlDaytona 500 Qualifyinganta. Sorenson, who is supposed to share seat time with Brian Vickers in the Nationwide Series, was originally scheduled to attempt to run a Cup race at Atlanta for Braun Racing.

As part of Sorenson’s contract with Braun racing the 24-year old driver was to attempt five races on the Cup side including Atlanta. The team has now moved the attempt back to Texas. Sorenson is also hoping to run Chicagoland, Indianapolis and Charlotte for the team later this year.

For those wondering Sorenson has not finished higher then 27th in his last four races at Atlanta after two top 10’s in 2007. At Texas Sorenson has not managed anything better then a 24th place run in his last six tries after a 13th and 17th place finish in 2006.

Sorenson has yet to make an official appearance this season at the Cup or Nationwide level after missing the Daytona 500 in February. According to his website he’ll be in the Nationwide 32 car at Bristol. (3/20)
