Late To Grid: E27 - Reed Kryder Former IMSA & SCCA Racer - Driver Coach & Race Shop Owner
Show Notes
We sit down with Reed Kryder from Kryder Racing and boy did we learn a lot!  What a background!

Reed's a former IMSA and SCCA driver who now coaches aspiring racers and owns Kyder Racing which provides car set up services, offers an arrive and drive program, and builds cars for customers.

We talk about Reed getting his old GTU car back on track for a vintage race, Reed's background at Goodyear, and get his insights into better driving.  Reed is responsible for the Test & Tune events at Nelson Ledges Road Course which offers a street car day and race car day each month.

Reed's advice on getting better?
Work to get consistent and identify where your issues are (braking, knowing the apex, driving line, etc).  He also suggests running 4-6 laps, make adjustments and repeat.  Plus, he shares so much more!  Check your tires after a session - which are hotter?  Hotter tires are the ones that are sliding on the track. 

Reed says, a lot of racing is passion - what's your passion?  Go and do that.
