Reed on Iowa
“I always enjoy going to Iowa Speedway because it is one of the few short tracks we visit. Most of us grew up racing on short tracks so we feel more comfortable here and it really shows in the way we race. I’m excited to get on track on Friday to see what kind of speed we have and hopefully have a clean race to bring home a top 10.”
