Reaid Is An Anderson Speedway Winner


ANDERSON, Ind. – T.J. Reaid worked his way up from the eighth starting spot to lead the final 56 laps to win the “Sell it Again, Sam!” 125 event Saturday at Anderson Speedway for the ARCA/CRA Super Series.

Reaid set fast time during qualifying and utilized the high groove early in the race to move up to the third spot behind early leader Bret Jack and Kyle Benjamin.

Benjamin took the lead from Jack on lap 43 and stayed out front until he was passed by Reaid with an inside move entering turn one.

Following a string of caution flags between lap 99 and 105, Reaid was leading local favorite Joe Beaver, Benjamin, Kenny Tweedy and Jack.

The ninth caution flag waved on lap 122 when Jay Niewiek spun in turn four which set up a three lap shoot-out to the finish.

Benjamin made a final charge for the win, but slipped entering turn one on lap 123 which allowed Reaid to cement the win.

Benjamin finished second followed by Beaver, Tweedy and Jack.

With the victory Reaid picked up a $500 bonus for winning after setting the fast time during qualifications.
