Josh Reaume continues to build his NASCAR resume.

The 23-year-old driver, whose family still lives in Highlands, is preparing for his seventh start of the season on the Nationwide Series, the U.S. Cellular 250 Saturday (Aug. 2) at Iowa Speedway.

Reaume is coming off a 33rd place finish at the Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last weekend. He started the race 37th and was still running at the end.

The finish matched his placing in the previous weekend’s EnjoyIllinois.com 300 at Chicagoland Speedway, where he ran 107 laps before dropping out of the race.

Reaume sits 35th in the driver standings for 2014, with his best finish 25th place in the Buckle Up 200 at Dover Speedway. Most of his starts so far have been driving for the Rick Ware Racing team.
