Turner Motorsports announced today that Reed Sorenson, who is currently third in the Nationwide Series standings, is out as driver of the No. 32 Dollar General Chevrolet.
Brian Vickers will assume driving duties from Sorenson beginning this weekend at Kansas Speedway.
Vickers, the 2003 NASCAR Nationwide Series Champion, who has a long-standing relationship with the team, will also get behind the wheel at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The driver for the remaining 2011 races will be announced at a later date.
"We are continuing to evaluate our racing program as we look to the 2012 season," team owner Steve Turner said in a statement. "... We are confident Brian can help assess where we are, as a company currently, and the direction we are going as we build our programs for 2012 and beyond."
Sorenson joined the team full-time after the fourth race of the 2010 Nationwide season. Through 29 races this year, the 25-year-old has one win, seven top-fives and 18 top-10 finishes. He is 49 points behind championship leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with five races remaining.
