Reed on Las Vegas
“We had our best run so far at Vegas last year with a ninth-place finish and I feel like we had a lot better car than that most of the day, so I have a lot of confidence going back. The Cup guys tested there so it’s good to see some notes from them. Our guys have done a really good job of working hand-in-hand with the Cup teams so hopefully that will help our efforts there.”
