Reed at Road America

Reed has competed at Road America four times in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. In those four starts, Reed has one top-five and one top-10 finish.

Last Year at Road America

Ryan Reed showed off his road course racing skills at Road America.  The driver of the Lilly Diabetes Ford started 14th and worked his way up to sixth before getting spun going into turn one.  The contact resulted in right-front fender damage, which proved to be more than cosmetic and plagued the team for the remainder of the race.  As a result of the damage, Reed suffered a flat tire from a fender rub which ultimately led to brake issues in the closing laps.  The loss of brakes sent Reed to the garage nine laps shy of the finish and left him with a 35th-place finish in his No. 16 Lilly Diabetes Ford.

In the Points

Reed is currently 11th in the NASCAR Xfinity Series standings with four races remaining to determine the Playoff field.

“This weekend is really exciting for a lot of reasons. There has been so much hype around Conor and I teaming up and working together not only on the race track, but also off the track to spread awareness about diabetes. I’m pumped to see how not only how we do in our DriveDownA1C.com Mustang, but Conor as well.”
