Brian Vickers again will drive the 32 car for Turner Motorsports. With primary sponsor Dollar General parting ways with the team at seasons end the team thought now as a good time to part ways with Sorenson who was currently third in the Nationwide standings 49 back of first.

Sorenson has w0n one race this season at Elkhart Lake following an odd chain of events when teammate Justin Allgaier ran out of gas on the final lap under caution.

Vickers has driven the car in the past and will work with Sorenson’s crew chief Trent Ownes.

Dollar General will sponsor a Joe Gibbs Racing car full time next season on the Nationwide circuit and will also sponsor a car on the Cup side part time next season.
