Michael Waltrip's Daytona Car
Reed is running the #55 this season for Daytona, and who knows how many more races. The #15 I think is still up in the air except for Michael Waltrip in the 500. My understanding was that Sorenson wouldn't be running the chartered car at all, but I'm not sure.And after Daytona, Reed Sorenson is back in the #15, correct? ...it's so confusing. Premium has ALWAYS been confusing though.
I think he went too big too fast with the team. The cheating scandal @ Daytona didn't help his team out either.Thats a good looking car. Still can't get over how aggressive Toyota went with the body, but I love it. Hopefully Chevy and Ford follow suit. And as for MW...can't believe he no longer has a race team.
The Richmond incident hurt his team way more than Daytona. That was essentially the team's first Cup race as a full time team and there were going to be growing paints anyway. By 2013 the team was pretty successful. And to be honest that was overblown, the fact that NAPA actually bailed over something so trivial was absurd. But the fact remains that NAPA left and that pretty much was the beginning of the end of the team (like M&M's with Yates) so I'd say Richmond turned out to be a much bigger factor in the end of the team than Daytona.Don't forget Spingate, which lost him the NAPA sponsorship and forced the team to scale back to two cars.
