Sorenson replaces Scott Speed at Leavine Family Racing
Reed Sorenson will take over as the driver of the Leavine Family Racing No. 95 Ford beginning with this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stop at Richmond International Raceway.
Sorenson replaces Scott Speed, who joined the one-car organization in 2012.
According to officials, Sorenson will drive for the team for the remaining select events on its 2013 schedule. In addition to this week’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at RIR, the team is expected to compete at Chicago, Charlotte, Martinsville and Texas.
Sorenson, 27, has 183 career starts in Cup. He currently competes in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for TMG and is 15th in that series’ points standings.
Speed has competed at the Cup level since 2008 when he made five starts for Red Bull Racing. He ran full-time for the team in 2009-10 before departing and has run a partial schedule since that time.
LFR officials say they are currently in discussions with several drivers for the 2014 season.
