Reed Sorenson Wins At Road America

Reed Sorenson ended up being the winner of Saturday’s Bucyrus 200 at Road America. From what shaped up to be a pretty crazy finish, it initally was Jason Allgaier who took the white flag and looked as though he had the cat in the bag to drive his machine to victory lane when Aric Almirola’s car stopped over in turn 5.

Allgaier who was in the lead ran out of gas in turn 6, handing the lead over to Reed Sorenson. When that happened the flagman waived the yellow caution flag which freezes the field on the last attempt of a green-white-checkered finish. Ron Fellows matted the gas on his machine after the yellow came out passing Sorenson which confused the winner of the race.

After looking at the backup tape Nascar declared that at the time the yellow caution flag was thrown it was indeed Reed Sorenson who was in front of Ron Fellows.

Max Papis ran a great race and was up front all day long when, Jacques Villeneuve during the first attempt at a GWC finish drove into Brian Scott which in-turn sent him into Max Papis totally destroying his car. Villeneuve apologized after the race for the incident.

The guy that I had my eye on was Andrew Ranger from Quebec Canada. Ranger has been racing in the K&N series and had his first attempt at a Nationwide race this past weekend. Ranger qualified the Waste Management sponsored Dodge in the 21st starting place,and during the race drove all the way up to 3rd for a while. Ranger brought home a 6th place finish, which is pretty awesome considering that this was this teams first try at a Nationwide race.
