Reed Looks to Rebound from 2017 Bristol Results

Spring 2017: Ryan Reed blew a right-front tire Saturday afternoon at Bristol Motor Speedway, ending his day early. Reed took the green flag from the rear of the pack due to a penalty in pre-race technical inspection, but was making progress working his way through the field when the right-front tire blew on lap 79, resulting in a 38th-place finish.

Fall 2017: Ryan Reed was prepared to take on the night race Bristol Motor Speedway, but his forward momentum was cut short in Stage 1. Reed suffered damage being on the outside of a three-wide squeeze for position and then the damage resulted in a flat tire once racing resumed. The damage from the flat tire was too severe to continue, leaving Reed with a 37th-place finish.

Reed on Bristol

“Bristol is the number one track that I need to get better at as a driver. Dover was another of those tracks for me, but we went there last year and got a top five in the first race and struggled a little bit in the second, but we know we made a lot of gains there last year. Bristol we just need to hit the reset button. As a driver when you are struggling at a place you need to clear your mind going into the weekend and not let your past runs dictate what you are going to do this year. I’m looking at it like a clean slate and starting fresh.”
