Racing with T1D: NASCAR’s Ryan Reed Wins at Daytona


Ryan Reed was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes six years ago and was told he’d never race again. At the time, he was moving from California to North Carolina to try to get onto the NASCAR circuit. Instead of giving up, Ryan found a new doctor and got back in the driver’s seat. Now a driver on NASCAR’s Xfinity circuit, Ryan won at Daytona in February, the same track where he got his first Xfinity win in 2015. Stacey talks to him for this bonus episode at Roush Fenway headquarters in Concord, NC.
