By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor Over the past year, Conor Daly has been all over the map from his duties in the Verizon IndyCar Series to running in the 30th season of The Amazing Race. Now he will try his hand at driving a stock car as it was announced on Friday that he will team up with Roush-Fenway Racing and Lilly Diabetes to drive the team’s No. 6 entry in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America on August 25. “I’m a racing driver, and growing up, whenRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver As we head to the final road course of the 2016 XFINITY Series schedule this weekend, I still don’t think anyone has stopped talking about the race at Mid-Ohio a few weeks ago. In case you missed that, it poured down rain for the majority of the race and we attempted to race with rain tires. Needless to say, it’s better in theory than it is in practice. It definitely made for an entertaining show for fans, but even the best road courseRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver We have had a couple of rough weeks with a broken part in Kentucky and a poor-handling car in New Hampshire. Your luck can change so quickly in racing it’s unbelievable. We had a really fast car in practice on Friday in New Hampshire and then on Saturday morning it was like we had unloaded a completely different car for qualifying. It’s hard not to be frustrated when things like that happen, but we know we have to turn that frustration into driveRead More

Daly Driver: Catching Back Up

By Conor Daly, Verizon IndyCar Series Driver It’s been a while since my last blog and that’s because it’s been crazy busy! It’s been non-stop since the start of May, but we finally had a little breathing room this past week. I think I’ve gone through every emotion since the start of May, I had the joy of leading my first laps at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the Grand Prix, I suffered a huge disappointment after spinning out of the Indy 500, I then experienced the best weekend ofRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver This is my third year in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and I would have to say this is the toughest start to a racing season I have ever had. We started Pocono off with radio issues, eventually blew a tire and ended up with a destroyed race car before the halfway point in the race.  The stats show we have an 18th– place average finish for the season. We have had numerous part failures and just bad luck so far, but are hangingRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver It’s a home game, or race, this weekend for the NASCAR XFINITY Series. There’s something to be said for being able to sleep in your own bed before the race and I’m really looking forward to being able to do that this weekend. There’s so much going on in the Charlotte area because of the back-to-back race weekends. Just for our team we have Fan Day at Roush Fenway, the Charlotte Speed Street Festival with Lilly Diabetes and American Diabetes Association, and aRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver It’s hard to believe we are entering the ninth race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series season this weekend at Talladega. At this point in the season, I feel like we’ve seen what each team’s strengths and weaknesses are on each kind of track we visit, aside from the road courses.  I think at Roush Fenway we have really made strides in our 1.5-mile program, but still have some work to do on the short tracks. I think we are definitely making gains allRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver The anticipation leading up to Bristol race week has been stronger than ever since the new XFINITY Dash 4 Cash format was announced in February. Bristol has always been a dream for those of us that grew up short track racing, but the heat race format really takes us back to our roots.  Not to mention – $100,000 is on the line, a possible Chase berth and the potential for a $1,000,000 total payout in Indy if we were to win the DashRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver Is it time to get back racing yet? This is the second off-week of the season for the NASCAR XFINITY Series and I’m itching to get back behind the wheel of my No. 16 Lilly Diabetes American Diabetes Association Ford Mustang. It was really hard leaving Fontana and not having a chance for redemption the following week.  We had an unfortunate pit road penalty that put us a lap down while we were running in the top 10, which ultimately cost us aRead More
By Ryan Reed, NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver Hey guys, I’m excited to have you follow me this year as I compete for a title in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, but also to give you a glimpse into my preparation and life away from the race track. Being a racecar driver, I get to do some pretty cool things and I hope you will enjoy following my journey this season. If you have any ideas of things you want to hear about in the future, tweet me at @driverryanreed. Let’s startRead More
