Ryan Reed wins rain-delayed ARCA race at Kentucky Speedway


SPARTA, Kentucky — Ryan Reed won the rain-delayed ARCA Racing Series race at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday for his second victory of the year.

Reed, driving Lira Motorsports' No. 38 Ford, led the final 20 laps and held off Travis Braden by 0.356 seconds in the 100-lap race that was postponed Friday night at the 1.5-mile speedway.

"It's a lot of fun. It's amazing when you drive as good of race cars as this one, how fun it can be," said Reed, from Bakersfield, California. "We started the day off in maybe an eighth-place car, but my crew chief, Teddy Brown, and everyone at Lira Motorsports did a great job tuning up our hot rod. We just never gave up. We got out front and got track position."

David Levine was third, followed by Ross Kenseth, points leader Grant Enfinger, Daniel Suarez, Kyle Weatherman, Chris Windom, Matt Kurzejewski and Bo LeMastus. With a 320-point lead, Enfinger needs only to start the season-finale Oct. 16 at Kansas Speedway to take his first series championship.
