Tyler Reddick Gambles on Fuel to Win at Las Vegas

By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service LAS VEGAS – Tyler Reddick and his Richard Childress Racing Team gambled and hit the jackpot at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday evening – taking a chance on fuel mileage; racing just hard enough and simultaneously saving just enough fuel to hold off Christopher Bell by .738-seconds in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Rhino Pro Truck Outfitters 300. Reddick, who hoisted his fifth trophy, also officially earned the regular season championship based on points, on lap 71 of the 200-lap race. He was running fifthRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent JR Motorsports driver Jeb Burton had a career day in the Indiana 250 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On the final restart, the NASCAR Xfinity Series driver pushed Kyle Busch out front. However, Burton had his JRM teammates Justin Allgaier and Noah Gragson on his outside. As Busch and Allgaier left him behind, the No. 8 State Water Heaters Chevrolet Camaro SS battled Gragson. With the draft being key, Gragson moved by his teammate with some help from Allgaier, Justin Haley, and Brandon Jones. TheRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service SPEEDWAY, Ind. – It was more of the same for Kyle Busch in Saturday’s Indiana 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but “more of the same” was anything but easy. Busch held off Justin Allgaier by .132 seconds during a five-lap run to the finish at the 2.5-mile track, but only after a hard crash that took out frontrunners Christopher Bell and Tyler Reddick with seven laps left. With a strong short-run car, combined with his unquestioned prowess on restarts, BuschRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent DARLINGTON, S.C. – JR Motorsports driver Justin Allgaier battled his boss, Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the way to a top-10 finish at Darlington Raceway. The NASCAR Xfinity Series regular may have lost touch with Earnhardt in the final green flag run of the race, but the duo often raced around one another. Allgaier battled teammate Noah Gragson as well as Austin Cindric, taking the checkered in 10th before being scored ninth after race winner Denny Hamlin was disqualified. When Allgaier and Earnhardt did battle at theRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service DARLINGTON, S.C. – It looked like more of the same at Darlington Raceway for driver Denny Hamlin—until post-race inspection happened. A five-time NASCAR Xfinity Series winner at the 1.366-mile track, Hamlin was first across the finish line in Saturday’s Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200, but the disqualification of Hamlin’s No. 18 Toyota for a ride-height violation made a winner of Cole Custer, who trailed Hamlin by .602 seconds at the finish line. “It’s a really strange feeling, honestly—obviously,” Custer said after being notified heRead More

By David Morgan, Associate Editor BRISTOL, Tenn. – A day after the NASCAR world held its breath as word of Dale Earnhardt, Jr’s plane crash spread like wildfire, Justin Allgaier was well on his way to bringing some good news to his team owner courtesy of a win in Friday night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. However, it was not to be as a cut tire struck Allgaier’s No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet in the closing laps, forcing him to pit road and having to settle forRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service BRISTOL, Tenn. – Tyler Reddick’s No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet had the word “BEAST” in big block letters on its hood Friday night. The car was aptly named. Even though Reddick had to come from the rear of the field twice in his Tame the Beast Camaro—once the result of a stiff penalty and once after a spin—he still needed a bit of luck to win the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway. A bit of luck—and large measure of heartache forRead More

Allmendinger Saturday afternoon at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The 20-year old Cindric had just celebrated his career first win last week at the iconic Watkins Glen International road course and with a huge smile, effusively wondered what may be next for his No. 22 Team Penske FordRead More
