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

With a strong short-run car, combined with his unquestioned prowess on restarts, BuschRead 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.

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
By Robert Gray, NASCAR Wire Service NEWTON, Iowa — Chase Briscoe’s been chasing wins all season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. They proved bitterly elusive — until Saturday’s U.S. Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway. The driver of the No. 98 Ford Performance Ford shrugged off frustration and instead churned up smoke with a jubilant, long-awaited series of burnouts that preceded his first trip to Victory Lane this season.
