Sorenson joins 300-start club
Reed Sorenson is now one of 92 drivers who have competed in at least 300 races in NASCAR’s top series.
Sorenson competed in the Bass Pro Shops/NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway Saturday. The Rick Ware Racing driver completed 338 laps before a crash ended his night. He finished 33rd.
“Blew out a right front to end the night,” Sorenson said on social media.
Sorenson, who has raced in 10 Cup Series events this year, has been competing in the series since 2005.
The 32-year-old driver has earned five top-five finishes, 15 top-10 finishes and one pole position across his career.
The last driver before Sorenson to reach start 300 was Brad Keselowski at Talladega Superspeedway in October of 2017. Keselowski won the race.
The next four active drivers who could hit the mark next are Landon Cassill (276), Michael McDowell (273), Aric Almirola (268) and J.J. Yeley (265).
Lee Petty was the first driver to hit the 300-start mark in 1958 with his 13th start of the year at Old Dominion Speedway.
