Iowa June 2017

Ryan Reed was making his move on the top-five late in the race when a flat left-front tire sent him into the outside wall and down pit road for repairs. Reed had previously rebounded from earlier contact thanks to a fast No. 16 Lilly Diabetes Ford, but the flat tire cost him the track position he had earned. Reed was able to stay on the lead lap and cross the line 19th.

Iowa July 2017

Ryan Reed was having a solid run at Iowa Speedway until a vibration developed following a routine mid-race pit stop. Reed tried to hold out for a caution, but had to pit under green for the loose wheel. That issue took away a top-10 finish for Reed. Despite the setback, Reed held on to earn a 21st-place finish in the No. 16 Lilly Diabetes Ford.

Reed on Iowa

“I love going to Iowa, it’s a really fun short track and with no Cup guys, just Xfinity regulars, you feel like you have a little better shot than normal to go out there and contend for a win. Coming off a really strong weekend at Michigan with a top-five finish we feel really confident going into Iowa. We’ve had some good runs at Iowa in the past and we just need to continue the momentum and keep building on what we did at Michigan.”
