Mooresville, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Reed Sorenson will drive the No. 36 Chevrolet for Tommy Baldwin Racing full-time in the Sprint Cup Series in 2014, the team announced on Tuesday.

Sorenson, who will turn 28 years old on Wednesday, has spent the past four seasons competing in the Nationwide Series. His signing with TBR comes one day after the team hired Todd Parrott as crew chief for the No. 36.

"I will give them everything I've got to perform well," Sorenson said in a team statement. "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 thankful for TBR and all of their partners for allowing me to be their driver. 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."

Sorenson has won four Nationwide races during his career, with his most recent victory occurring in 2011 at Road America. He made 28 starts in NASCAR's second-tier series last year. Sorenson drove a full-time Sprint Cup schedule for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates from 2006-08 and then Richard Petty Motorsports in 2009.

"It's cool to have Reed on board driving the No. 36," team owner Tommy Baldwin said. "I've looked at his statistics and was really surprised at how well he's done. It's taken six years to get where we are now, and the No. 36 car is only two or three years into it. So we're slowly building that, and we're excited to have Reed on board with his experience at such a young age and ability to provide sound feedback to help us do that."
