Josh Reeves at Talladega

Reeves at the Dega

On Tuesday, April 17th, Reeves took to the high banks of Talladega Superspeedway for an open ARCA Re/Max series presented by Menards test. With a 100% chance of rain, track time seemed more than unlikely.

With the biggest percentage of the storm cell moving to the west, it gave the series a few openings for track time. No more than an hour into the session, a rain shower came leaving the teams to wait out the shower until it was time to get back on the track. Once practice resumed, cars were quickly lining up to pace through the session. As Josh began to hit the track, another cell came through; this one harder than the one before. After a prolonged break due to the track being dried, practice was well under way once again.

This time Josh was able to finally get on the track. Easing his way around the first lap, Josh seen that the car was rather stable so he took it to the limits. After running 3 laps total, Josh posted a time of 54.18 at a top speed of 176.78 MPH in his debut at the superspeedway.

“I am very pleased with our lap. I do however feel like we could have gained quite a bit the second time around but the rain just would not cooperate with us. I can’t thank everyone enough at C2M for their ongoing support in my career. I feel like family when I am around them. I look forward to racing for them some this year, as well as some later testing dates.”

Look for the team in Talladega on May 4th as they will be running the Talladega 250. The race will also be aired live on the SPEED channel.
