Reed and the No.16 team finished ninth at Watkins Glen International on Saturday after starting in the rear of the field and racing their way to a top-10 finish for the second straight week.
Reed on Mid-Ohio
“Coming off the momentum of back-to-back top-10 finishes really puts us in a positive frame of mind for this weekend. Roush Fenway has a winning history at Mid-Ohio, so we expect a lot out of ourselves here. As long as we can stay out of trouble, there’s no reason we can’t contend for a win this weekend.”
Reed will celebrate his 23rd birthday on Friday, August 12th while at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
“A win on my birthday weekend would be pretty cool for sure, but I just really want to continue the progress we’ve made in the past few races and make sure we are secure in our Chase hopes,” said Reed. “With the Chase starting in seven weeks, there is no better time for our No. 16 Lilly Diabetes/American Diabetes Association team to have a hot streak.”
Reed will participate in the NASCAR XFINITY Series autograph session on Friday, August 12th from 3 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. ET at the white tent on the Bluff outside of the NASCAR XFINITY Series garage.
Reed and the rest of the NASCAR XFINITY Series will take the green flag from Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Saturday, August 13th at 3:30 p.m. ET on USA and MRN.
