Reed on Mid-Ohio
“We were a top-five car last year in the rain, maybe even in contention to win, so I’d be ok with some more rain this time. 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.”
