NASCAR veteran Reed Sorenson, who has been driving on the Nationwide Series for the last four seasons, will return to the Sprint Cup circuit this season for Tommy Baldwin Racing, it was announced Tuesday.

Sorenson, who made his Sprint Cup debut in 2006, will be behind the wheel of the No. 36 car and will have Todd Parrott as his crew chief.

"I will give them everything I've got to perform well," Sorenson said in a release. "I'm confident with Todd's winning resume along with Tommy's accomplishments, it's going to lead to great things for this team.

"I'm looking forward to helping TBR build on what they have already achieved and to help make the team better than they ever have been."

The 27-year-old Sorenson has 189 Sprint Cup Series starts over nine years. He's got five top-five finishes at NASCAR's top level. His last full-time Cup season was in 2009 when he drove for Richard Petty Motorsports.

Sorenson ran six Cup races last season for Leavine Family Racing. His best finish was 37th at Phoenix.

Most of Sorenson's success is in the Nationwide Series, where he's got four wins.
