Meet Ryan Reed

NASCAR Driver

GENTLMEN, START YOUR CGM!

 

It was my childhood dream to be a race car driver. My dad, who is also a race car driver, introduced me to the sport as a kid, allowing me to tag along in karts and stock cars. From there, I was hooked. At 14, I won my first Legends Division Championship and in 2009, I was named Rookie of the Year in the Super Late Model Division and was the youngest person to win that title at Irwindale, in California. I was officially a race car driver, and I was on top of the world. 

 

A DEVASTATING DISCOVERY 

 

My career nearly ended a few years later when I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 17. 

 

 

“Doctors told me I would never race again, I was devastated."

The device that changed everything…

I now use the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System  to help me manage my glucose levels both on and off the race track. NASCAR worked with my team to modify my race car so that my Dexcom receiver could be mounted to my dashboard. I can keep track of my glucose levels alongside my RPM, water temperature and tire pressure. For me, the Dexcom CGM System is an essential tool that allows me to pursue my dreams.

 

Stay strong and believe in yourself. If you pursue your dreams and remain confident, you can achieve whatever you want in life. Accept no limits!
