Driver & Team Press Releases News
Tink Reedy is looking to Get Back behind the Wheel at Martinsville
Sep 14, 2007 - updated Sep 14th, 2007 4:18pm
Web posted by Kenny Lang

--

Tink Reedy and the Reedy Racing Team were strolling along with a successful racing season in 2007. Reedy was second in points at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA with one win and numerous top five finishes. He had one win and one second place finish in two starts at Franklin County Speedway in Callaway, VA. Then the doctor intervened and put a halt to the momentum the team had built during the season.

The 51-year-old Late Model Stock Car ace underwent surgery on Friday August 17th to clean out a carotid artery in his neck. The artery had gone from 62% blocked to 88% in six months. The strange thing is Reedy had lost forty pounds and changed his diet dramatically during that six month span. Tink did the smart thing and put his racing on the backburner to correct his health problem.

Tink and the team have taken the time off from the track to get ready for the biggest Late Model Stock Car race in the nation, the Bailey’s 300 in Martinsville, VA. Reedy will return to the seat of his family owned, Rod Shop, Pizza Den, The Lube Center, Pro Image Graphics, UFCW Local 400, Mobility Plus Inc. of VA, RacersLounge.com, Petroleum Marketers, Inc./Pennzoil, RC Restoration, HARCOR Racing Products, Clark’s Automotive Race Engines Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Wednesday September 19th. The open practice at Martinsville will give Tink a chance to see how his body has healed and if he is ready for the Bailey’s 300 weekend September 28th thru 30th.

“Right now I feel great.” Tink exclaimed. “The real test will come when I strap into the racecar next week.” “The car should be very competitive and I hope to be as good as the car is.”

If all goes well Tink and the team will try to make the field at Martinsville. The competition is fierce just to make the forty-two car starting grid. There are usually eighty-five to one hundred entries trying to make the race, which pays $25,000 to the winner.
