Reed announced that he will be stepping down from his position at the post-race press conference following the race's 40th running on July 10th.

"We are honored to be able to host Tim's 'Roast and Toast'," said Jerry Kraus, Executive Director of The Stanley Theatre. "I encourage all of his friends and acquaintances to come out and enjoy this night and to thank Tim for his decade of Boilermaker leadership."
