Victoria’s Josh Reaume to race Alabama’s Talladega Speedway
Victoria race car driver Josh Reaume keeps putting up the solid results as he heads to Alabama’s Talladega Speedway this weekend for another NASCAR Camping World truck series race, the Coca-Cola 250. It was just a short two weeks ago that he posted his best result of the year, with a 16th place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and carries that momentum into his 10th race this season at NASCAR’s longest and fastest high banked oval. Reaume will once again be driving the Colonial Countertops Chevrolet Silverado for Mark Beaver Motorsports.
The 27-year-old Westshore racing resident seems to have really hit his stride this year posting a total of six, top-20 race finishes, three of them coming in the last month alone. His lowest finish has been only a 26th and that was way back in the spring at Texas Motor Speedway. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has five races remaining and with Reaume scheduled to race them all, then a top-10 finish is definitely approachable. The key to this year’s success has been his strong ability to bring the truck home, each race, unscathed and in one piece, and thus has no DNF’s this year, a testament to his race craft. As Reaume is a graduated engineer, from the University of Victoria, his chassis set-up skills and methodical work ethic have garnered him positive results that are paying off each weekend,
