Reed Sorenson will fill in for NASCAR Nationwide Series team driver Michael Annett Richard Petty Motorsports announced Tuesday. Annett was injured in a crash at Daytona International Speedway and had to undergo surgery for a fractured and dislocated sternum.

Sorenson will race the No. 43 Ford beginning this week at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and stay as the driver until Annett is healed and cleared by NASCAR officials to race.

“It’s an unfortunate situation for the team and Michael,” said Sorenson. “I have been to the hospital to see him, and he will be fine, but it’s going to take some time to heal. As a friend for a long time, my initial reaction was concern. I’m glad that he’s recovering now.” MORE>>>
