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

A bit of luck—and large measure of heartache forRead More

This occurred after NASCAR officials disallowed both drivers’ qualifying times after their Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 entries were found having unapproved alternators. Consequently, it results an L1-level penalty and according to Bob Pockrass’ tweet about the matter, NASCAR stated the following penalties: Both Dillon and Hemric will be deducted 10 drivers points, 10 owners points and crew chiefs DannyRead More

After Custer and Bell pitted for fuel from the top two positionsRead More

Fresh off a victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway last Saturday, Reddick appeared to be on his way of scoring back-to-back victories, but on the final turn of the final lap, his No. 2 Tame the Beast Chevrolet Camaro got sideways, allowing Cole Custer got get byRead More
