Ryan Reed unsure of 2019 plans

For the past five seasons, Ryan Reed has made a staple of competing for solid finishes in the Xfinity Series for Roush Fenway Racing. But his run with the team could come to a close in Saturday’s (Nov. 17) Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Indeed, Reed’s future is certainly in question after longtime sponsor Lilly Diabetes announced in mid-October it would be leaving the No. 16 team following Homestead. In more than five years together, the California native has picked up a pair of victories at Daytona International Speedway for Lilly, posting seven top-five and 27 top-10 finishes in 170 career starts. He also made one Cup start, at Talladega in 2016 where he ran 26th.

Reed’s future is unclear, but he believes it will all work out.

"We do have a lot of irons in the fire and things that we are working on," Reed added. "There’s nothing concrete, nothing signed. I don’t have a contract for next year. I’m really excited for what the future holds – I’m excited for change and the opportunity to grow as a driver. I just don’t know what that is exactly going to be yet."
