Sorenson returns to Nationwide in '13
Reed Sorenson will return to the NASCAR Nationwide Series full time this season, driving for The Motorsports Group starting with the season-opening race at Daytona.
Sorenson, 26, has four career Nationwide wins to his credit as well as two top-five season finishes in the series. He ran 19 Sprint Cup races for various organizations in 2012.
NASCAR returns to FOX at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 6 p.m. ET, with coverage on FOX beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET.
Sorenson will partner with the Curtis Key-owned team beginning with the Feb. 23 Daytona race.
"I think we've got a car that can run really well at Daytona, and - you saw it with last year's race - anything can happen there," Sorenson said. "If we position ourselves correctly, we have an opportunity for a respectable finish."
Gary Showalter will be the crew chief for the TMG team.
Sorenson began running in the Nationwide Series part time in 2004 and moved to a full-time role the following season. He finished a career-best fourth in the series standings in 2005. He raced full time in the Sprint Cup Series from 2006 through 2009.
