Roush Fenway Racing driver Ryan Reed will attempt to make his Sprint Cup Series debut at Talladega Superspeedway in the Alabama 500 on Oct. 23.
It will also mark the return of the No. 99 in Sprint Cup competition, which was last driven by Carl Edwards in his final season at RFR in 2013.
"I am really looking forward to Talladega and racing in the Sprint Cup race," said Reed. "For anyone that has ever had the chance to get behind the wheel of a race car, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is the ultimate goal."
Reed will pilot the Lilly Diabetes-sponsored Ford Fusion, the same sponsorship featured on his No. 16 in the XFINITY Series. He currently sits fourth in the inaugural Chase grid after last Saturday night's first race at Kentucky Speedway.
