Ryan Looks Towards Chicago | Advance

Reed on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:

“I can’t wait to get to Chicago and get on the track.  The last few weeks, this Drive to Stop Diabetes team has really gained some momentum, and I’m hoping that we can keep that going.  We’ve been running well during these races and I feel like we are starting to get the finishes this team deserves.  I know we’ll have a car capable of running up front on Saturday night.”
