NASCAR At Pocono Update: Peachtree City's Reed Sorenson Crashes Hard

One of the two Georgia natives in Sunday's Pocono 400 will not be around for the finish.

Reed Sorenson spun in the third turn on lap 13 and slammed the wall hard, doing heavy damage to the right side of his No. 32 FAS Lane Motorsports Ford. Dave Blaney and J.J. Yeley also slid up into the outside wall, battering the nose of Yeley's Toyota and doing damage to Blaney's Chevrolet as well.

Polesitter Joey Logano has dominated the opening laps of the race, taking the lead on the initial start and holding it through the restart from a multi-car accident in turn three on lap one. Paul Menard runs second, ahead of Jamie McMurray, Marcos Ambrose, and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

As expected, the newly repaved track has proved treacherous. The third turn has particularly been calamity corner, seeing both three-car wrecks in the first few laps of the race take place when a car - Landon Cassill on lap one, Sorenson on lap 13 - got loose and spun in the middle of the turn.
