ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards veteran John Wes Townley has a secret weapon at Daytona; his name is Kevin Reed.

Townley, in a brand new Zaxby’s Chevrolet, returned to the Gatorade Victory Lane at Daytona Int’l Speedway with an old friend. Reed who crew-chiefed Townley to Victory Lane in 2013 at Daytona with a different team, reunited with Townley just in time to win the Lucas Oil 200 Driven By General Tire Saturday afternoon. The win not only reunited Townley with Reed, it was the first win for the new Tony Townley-owned Athenian Motorsports team. Eighteen-year-old rookie William Byron, in the No. 55 Liberty University Toyota, finished second, three lengths away (.209 seconds/margin of victory) at the final stripe. It was Byron’s career-first start at Daytona.
