Reed on Atlanta
“I am really looking forward to Atlanta; it’s a fun track for drivers. The worn out surface and knowing that a repave is coming makes you definitely enjoy these races while they last. We started off the year with a strong run at Daytona and it is important to carry that momentum through to Atlanta. Running well at a 1.5-mile track like Atlanta will put you in a really good position.”
