Reed Sorenson on Contract Status: "We're Working on It"

Reed Sorenson hasn't had the best season in 2008. After finishing fifth in the Daytona 500, he has had only one other top five and two top 10s.

Thirty-second in points, CGR even took their young driver out of the seat in Infineon to gain points.  He's finished on the lead lap just seven times in his 18 starts.

The 22-year-old Georgia native has yet to score his first win in the Cup Series, but he seems determined to stick it out at Chip Ganassi Racing.

Last weekend at the Gateway International Raceway, where Sorenson has won twice in the Nationwide Series, he told the media that they are "working on" a new contract.  Sorenson is in the last year of his current deal with CGR.

Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates signed Reed Sorenson back in 2003 when he was just 17.

This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is at the famed Brickyard in Indianapolis where Sorenson scored his first—and only—pole in Cup and finished fifth in 2007.
