Sorenson Wins Busch Race at Nashville

Reed Sorenson won the Busch race at Nashville today. The 19 year old rookie won in his tenth start. He ran a few races last year. The win has him in second place in points, He totally dominated and led 90% of the laps. This kid is a good one.

Yeah, I saw race today. Sorenson was pretty good today. I was kinda disappointed at Carl Edwards today (he's my favorite driver). Last week he won both Busch and Nextel Series, and today he only finished 4th. He's still first in standings.

Sorenson was driving Charger today, right?

I have a question about points. How does a whole thing work? How many points do you get for win, for 2nd place, for 3rd place ... and so on? Do you get points for qualify races?
Because I never heard of this kid Sorenson until yesterday. He won 1 race and now he's 2nd in standings. How's that posible?

I bet he makes a good Toyota driver in a few years.

Not the way they are running this year. No wins yet for the rice burners.

He's been in the top 10 for all but one race this season.

This link explains the points system for Nextel Cup. http://www.nascar.com/2004/news/head...art/index.html
Busch Series is similar but does NOT use the "Chase" format at the end of the year.

In a nutshell the points are setup to reward consistent finishes. It doesn't reward the winner a lot of extra points. Cuts down on the racing sometimes beacuase guys settle for the points thewy have rather than risk a pass.

And yes Sorenson was driving a Charger. This is the first win for the Charger this year.

2 races. Mexico 200 and Aaron's 312.

I wrote about each NASCAR race in all 3 series for one Serbian Web Site, and I don't really know I missed him. He's been driving really good this season.

He's real smooth, especially for a young guy. He doesn't tear his stuff up too much. Reminds me of Matt Kenseth.
