Reed grabs Xfinity Series win in wreck-fest at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Reed picked up the second Xfinity Series victory of his career — both at Daytona International Speedway — by winning the wreck-filled season-opener Saturday.

Reed held off Austin Dillon and Kasey Kahne in a two-lap overtime shootout to win in a Ford for Roush Fenway Racing. Reed's only other career victory came in this race in 2015, and he was celebrated for overcoming a diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes to become a race-winning driver.

Reed had initially been told upon diagnosis that he'd not be able to race.
