Reed on Chicagoland
“We are ready to get to Chicago this weekend. We haven’t been at a 1.5-mile track in a while and everyone has done a lot of preparation getting the cars better with wind tunnel time and R&D at the shop. Chicago is a great chance to see where we are at with our 1.5-mile program and we are looking to keep gaining some momentum going into the Playoffs.”
