The 2022 season so far has been full of bad luck for the Richard Childress Racing’s No:8 car driver Tyler Reddick as the young guns’ chase for the Cup Race title continues. Ross Chastain saw just another nightmare unfold before him at Kansas as a contact with the wall cost him valuable laps prompting his relation from a P2 start to the P30th finish.

Tyler Reddick started the race strong behind race leader Christopher Bell who started at the poll and was able to hold on to a 24-lap lead, in the beginning, earning him a P4 finish at the end of stage two behind then-leader Kyle Busch. But comes the end of stage two Tyler Reddick was down to P29 after contact with the wall causing a tire problem.

On the other hand, Tyler Reddick and the RCR team could not recover from the tire problem and finished the race at P30, and RCR’s second driver Austin Dillon was able to make his way to P13 after starting the race at p22 in a late-race surge. Now Tyler Reddick has expressed his opinion on what went down for him at Kansas.

Tyler Reddick acknowledged that the entire RCR team had an optimistic start to the race as they were able to qualify for second and start the race in the front row which was justified by his  P4 finish ta the end of stage two. But unfortunately, once again this season bad luck struck the No:8 car as it lost a tire following contact with the wall.

Our entire Richard Childress Racing team started today pretty optimistic after qualifying second and starting on the front row at Kansas Speedway. We led some laps in Stage 1 and felt like our BetMGM Chevrolet was really strong. Unfortunately, things started to take a turn when we had a tire go down and made contact with the wall,” Tyler Reddick said.

Tyler Reddick went on to say that they were a few laps down after the Pit stop and were unable to get back to the top or build a solid run as bad luck continued to strike. He went on to say RCR is not fazed by it as they see it as just a bad day in the office and said his team will learn from their mistakes and will not be giving up.

We ended up going a few laps down, and even though we kept taking the wave around bad luck continued to strike. It just wasn’t our day. We’ll take this and learn from it like we always do. Our time is coming and this team doesn’t give up,” Tyler Reddick added.
