Review and preview: Tyler Reddick

first_imgA 2015 rewind and a 2016 preview for the top five finishers last season in the NASCAR XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series. Today: Tyler Reddick, the second-place finisher in the truck series standings. Team: Brad Keselowski Racing No. 19 Ford (2015); Brad Keselowski Racing No. 29 Ford (2016) Wins: 2 (Daytona, Dover) Strides: Reddick’s breakout season featured not only a breakthrough into Victory Lane — twice — but remarkable consistency. His tally of 19 top-10 finishes in 23 races left him just 15 points behind champion Erik Jones at year’s end. Setbacks: “Unfortunately, I found ways to lose that third win multiple times,” Reddick said of his several brushes with the checkered flag without cashing in during the latter stages of 2015. Quoteworthy: “Obviously, we’d set our goals to win the championship and we knew that was going to be difficult and we were going to have to work very hard. We did work very hard, but unfortunately for our team, we fell just short of that, but to some good company and some tough competition. So we know where we’ve got to get better, how we’ve got to get better and we will do this during the offseason.” What’s next: Reddick returns for truck owner Brad Keselowski, switching teams within the organization but while keeping his core crew and other personnel intact. He also gains a teammate in Daniel Hemric, who moves over from NTS Motorsports.last_img
