Tommy Baldwin Racing Signs Reed Sorenson as Driver of the No. 36
Mooresville, NC (February 4, 2014) - Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) is proud to announce that it will field the No. 36 Chevrolet SS with Reed Sorenson behind the wheel for the full 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season. Team owner Tommy Baldwin and newly hired crew chief Todd Parrott made the decision to bring Sorenson, the 27-year-old seasoned NASCAR driver, on board to assist in building the team and taking it to the next level.
Sorenson is excited to get back into the Sprint Cup Series full time. “I will give them everything I’ve got to perform well,” Sorenson said. “I’m confident with Todd’s winning resume along with Tommy’s accomplishments; it’s going to lead to great things for this team. I’m thankful for TBR and all of their partners for allowing me to be their driver. I’m looking forward to helping TBR build on what they have already achieved and to help make the team better than they ever have been.”
Baldwin noted that he’s impressed with Sorenson’s resume and feels he’s the right guy for the job. “It’s cool to have Reed on board driving the No. 36. I’ve looked at his statistics and was really surprised at how well he’s done,” Baldwin said. “It’s taken six years to get where we are now and the No. 36 car is only two or three years into it so, we’re slowly building that and we’re excited to have Reed on board with his experience at such a young age and ability to provide sound feedback to help us do that.”
