It’s almost as if Charlotte Motor Speedway owed something to Tyler Reddick.  The 23-year old had never led a lap in the Xfinity series at the 1.5-mile speedway and had never finished better than 10th. That all changed Saturday. The reigning NASCAR Xfinity champion led a race high 110 of 200 laps to win the NASCAR Xfinity Alsco 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“I’ve been very disrespectful to her actually,” Reddick said of the track. “Going up and bouncing off the walls and doing all sorts of things I shouldn’t have. But it gave it gave me a lot to go on coming back into this race. I’d forgotten how well I’d run here a year ago and I remember how we were here my first time two years ago but we just didn’t have it work out at the end of the race.”

“This time around I remembered all the dumb things I’ve done in years prior and I just told myself “OK I just better stay out of the wall and try and have a good run today’ and I think I did that.”

It was his second win of 2019 and the fifth of his career. MORE>>>
