Reid told Renee that if they kept going to the track he was going to want to start racing again. Renee made him a deal, if he would stop smoking he could afford a racecar. It didn't take long for Reid to decide he wanted to quit smoking and start racing, now that the kids were all grown and he had the time. 2017 was his first year back. Reid raced friday nights at Mt. Pleasant Speedway where he finished 3rd in points, and at Merritt Speedway where he finished 5th in points.
Reid was very fortunate to have a season where nothing serious happened to his car or motor and transmission. For the 2018 season we have a new chassis ready to go but we are using the same motor and transmission.a $5000 sponsorship would help is get a back-up motor, as well as a few extra parts to keep us running the whole season.
