In another round of In Case You Missed It we get caught up in some under the radar moves just before the NASCAR season begins. Majority of the stories deal with the NASCAR Nationwide Series and there’s a one for the Sprint Cup. Without any ado, let’s find out what’s going on with Reed Sorenson, Morgan Shepherd, Ryan Reed, and Terry Labonte. According to Dave Moody, 71-year old Morgan Shepherd will be in Daytona for the season-opening Drive4COPD 300. Beyond that, though, is a little cloudy to Shepherd and his team. He needs sponsorship to continue running beyond this race. He will be using Dodges he acquired from Penske Racing. My opinion is Morgan should just hang it up. He’s shown when given really good equipment he can get the job done, the only problem is no one is going to give him a shot and if it’s his own team, no one is going to sponsor him. Making the race at 71 would be a tremendous story and he should go out on that. Roush Fenway Racing will be running Ryan Reed in the Nationwide Series for five races in 2013, per the Bakersfield Californian. Reed, 19, was diagnosed with type I diabetes and will be spreading the word about diabetes with sponsorship from the American Diabetes Association and its Drive to Stop Diabetes campaign. Reed is not the only driver with diabetes, Miguel Paludo also has been championing the cause as well in the Camping World Truck Series. Interesting that Roush Fenway Racing’s Nationwide program seemed bleak at the end of last year, but now is back to two full-time teams and one part-time team. NASCAR.com (which the new site is not friendly with Internet Explorer which makes it annoying for me to remember to switch) reports that Reed Sorenson has a full-time ride for 2013. He will drive the #40 Chevrolet Camaro for The Motorsports Group. The team, which is owned by Curtis Key, usually starts and parks races with a variety of drivers. No mention if Sorenson would be given the green light to run the races, but Gary Showalter will be crew chief….not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but hey sounds impressive! And finally, 1984 and 1996 champion Terry Labonte is back running the #32 FAS Lane Racing in the Daytona 500 with sponsorship from C&J Energy Services. As previously reported he will run all four restrictor plate races this year for the team, via FAS Lane Racing PR.
