Reed on Talladega
“I don’t know what it is about Talladega, we’ve been fast, led laps, but I get caught up in a wreck every single time. I have confidence going to every superspeedway. We have fast cars and Phil (Gould) does a great job making the right pit strategy calls. My main goal is to finish at Talladega. If I can keep the car in one piece I’ll be happy.”
