Highlands racer posts best XFinity finish for 2016

Josh Reaume continues to plug away on pro racing circuit

Driving the Colonial Countertops/Lodestar Ford Mustang, Josh Reaume recorded his best finish of the NASCAR XFinity Cup Series season on Saturday at Kansas Speedway.

Reaume, who has lived in Highlands with his family in the past, started 38th and dropped back slightly before charging through the field to finish 27th in the Kansas Lottery 300. He was still running at the end of the race for the first time in six starts in 2016.

For the just-turned 26 year old, the result topped his previous best this year of 34th at the Heads Up Georgia 250 in Atlanta in February. His best-ever finish in parts of three years on the XFinity Series was 23rd at Daytona while competing for the Obaika Racing team.

The series has three races remaining this season.
