Ryan Reed – Darlington Advance

Reed on racing at Darlington Raceway:

 “Darlington is definitely one of the most intimidating places we go to.  I have been watching a lot of the old race tapes and talking to my teammates about what to expect.  It looks like a blast to drive though, so I just want to go there and have some fun.”
