2017 Darlington Recap

Reed started the race 17th and was able to capitalize on fresh tires to race his way up to 11th, but contact on pit road impeded his forward momentum. Despite an extra pit stop for left front fender repair, Reed rebounded to finish 15th.

Darlington Throwback Scheme

Ryan Reed’s No. 16 Ford will take on an iconic look this weekend at Darlington Raceway, as the team honors back-to-back wins made by Greg Biffle in 2005 and 2006 with a patriotic throwback to those victories. Roush Fenway Racing is the winningest team in NASCAR history and the timely throwback comes on the heels of team owner Jack Roush being inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2019.

Reed on Darlington

“Darlington is always an exciting weekend for NASCAR Throwback. We all get pumped up about doing something special and honoring and remembering our sports history. This Greg Biffle throwback is really cool for a lot of reasons. I’ve been honored to drive the 16 car for five years now and Greg has been such a big part of making this number famous, by getting so many wins in it. This scheme, in particular, I remember watching as a kid and him winning in ’05 and ’06 at Darlington. This race scheme is something special and over the years as we’ve been doing the throwback I’ve always wanted to honor Greg, because of what he did for Roush Fenway and the No. 16. The car looks awesome and I’m really excited to get it on the race track.”
