Bryan Reedy hopes to carry the momentum from the 2017 race season in to Martinsville
Bryan Reedy has had his best season in late model stock since moving up in 2015. Having 10 top ten and 4 top five finishes out of 12 starts, including his career best 4th place finish on two occasions. His worst place finish being 11th on two different occasions. These finishes led Reedy to a 3rd place finish in the points standings behind Mike Looney and Phillip Morris at Motor Mile speedway.
Reedy hopes this momentum will lead him in to a good finish at Martinsville. Reedy in his first attempt made the race back in 2012, but after overheating issues led him to a 29th place finish. The following year Reedy would once again make the race, starting 21st, but after getting caught up in a wreck on lap 20 led to a disappointing 37th place finish. The next two years would have no results in making the race. Last year after a mid-season crash Reedy had to put a hold on the rest of the season, including Martinsville.Rolling into the 2017 test for the Valley Star Credit Union 300, the team had high hopes. The test didn’t disappoint. They made several gains on the car throughout the day and picked up 7 tenths of a second from the time they unloaded and the time they left.” I feel like we have a car capable of making it, which is a change from the last couple of times I have been there”. His father Tink has made the race 7 times, starting back in 1995 all the way up to the year he retired in 2007. With a best finish of 16th in 1999. Bryan Reedy and his team, led by crew chief Clay Highberger, who himself has raced at Martinsville 4 times twice in late models and twice in the Busch Grand National series. This team might just have their best chance for a great finish this Saturday night under the lights for the first time at Martinsville Speedway.
