Reed at Phoenix
Reed finished sixth in the fall last year at Phoenix, his best finish at the 1.0-mile track. Reed qualified third for that race, which prior to his second-place starting position in Daytona this season, was his best XFINITY qualifying position.
Ryan Reed started Saturday afternoon’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway from the 10th position and was a factor in the top-10 the majority of the 200-lap race, even a vibration mid-race and a loose handling No. 16 Lilly Diabetes Ford Mustang couldn’t keep him from persevering. When the checkered flag waved, Reed was scored ninth.

Reed on Phoenix
“Phoenix is obviously a really cool race track and I think a lot of drivers like it, being one of the few short tracks. For me, being on the west coast is that much more special. I have a ton of family every time I go out there. I watched my Dad race there growing up and last year at the second Phoenix race we had one of our best races of the year, qualifying third and finishing sixth. I have a lot of confidence going to Phoenix and I’m looking for another good run.”
