MARTINSVILLE, Va.—Two races into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, Tyler Reddick sits atop the standings, but the 19-year-old California driver isn’t paying attention to points—unless someone else happens to mention it.

“I know just by hearing it here and there when I’m on the radio or getting interviewed, but otherwise I haven’t even glanced at it,” said Reddick, who won the season opener at Daytona and followed with a fifth-place run at Atlanta in the No. 19 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford. “It’s not really in our minds at all. We just want to look ahead at the next race, which is Martinsville, and trying to get the best run possible we can there.

“Again, we just want to get the best finishes we can. We would love to run in the top five and we’re shooting for the win, but that’s not even a concern right now. We’re two races in.”

After a three-week hiatus, the Truck Series resumes Saturday with the Kroger 250 at Martinsville (2:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1).
