CONCORD, N.C. ¬- The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) is coming off of a two-week hiatus going into the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS). It will be the first night race of the season for the series and the second one-and-a-half mile track to appear on the schedule.
Reed Sorenson and the No. 43 Pilot Ford team have regrouped and are ready to wrangle the “asphalt circus” during the 300-mile race at the Fort Worth, Texas track. Sorenson made his first start of the season with Richard Petty Motorsports in the NNS at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, another one-and-a-half mile oval track, earlier this year. With limited practice time due to weather, he posted a top-20 finish.
A 10-year NNS veteran, Sorenson has nine starts at TMS. His best start is second (2006) and his best finish is third (2010 and 2005). Sorenson has an average finish of 13.8 and compiled five top-10s at the mile-and-a-half track in the NNS.
