Reed on Richmond
“I always look forward to going back to Richmond. I got my start at Richmond and have a lot of great memories there. I can remember four years ago being 19 and strapping into the racecar at Richmond for my first start, I was so nervous before qualifying. I love short track racing. I feel like we’ve got a little work to do on our short track program, but we’ve made a lot of progress and I can’t wait to get on the track this weekend.”
