Tommy Baldwin Racing has hired Reed Sorenson to drive the No. 36 Chevrolet this season.

Sorenson will be paired with veteran crew chief Todd Parrott, who was also hired this week.

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.
