Tyler Reddick currently running in the No.8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 of Richard Childress Racing as a full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver also competes part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series driving the No.48 Chevrolet Camaro for Big Machine Racing and happened to win the NASCAR Kwik Trip 250 at Road America this weekend after holding off Chase Elliott of Hendricks Motorsports, the reigning Road America winner for his first-ever Cup Series win.
Tyler Reddick will be running his fifth full-time season with Richard Childress Racing in 2023 possibly alongside his now teammate Austin Dillon in the No.8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Reddick currently has one win, four top 5s, and two top 10s this season while also having the highest number of runner-ups with a total of seven so far in the 92 races he ran in four years of Cup Series racing, he will be returning to Richard Childress Racing in 2023 and is also currently weighing his options for 2024.
“Well, it’s a tough thing, it is far down the line, but you have to be thinking,” Tyler Reddick on his plans after the 2023 Cup Series season
Tyler Reddick is now the 13th distinct winner in a total of seventeen Cup Series races this season and he said that prior to his victory in the Kwik Trip 250 at Road America, he cemented his place with Richard Childress Racing for 2023 and while talking about what he thinks about his future he added that he isn’t completely sure as of now but is positive that he’ll come up with something with the time he has.
“Next year is all taken care of, I’ll be racing with RCR next year. Well, it’s a tough thing, it is far down the line, but you have to be thinking. You gotta give as much as you can in the present and the now, but some of what happens in the present now are set up by what you do in the future. So, certainly thinking about that,” said Tyler Reddick.
He further added by saying that he will explore all the options he has at his disposal with the time he has in his hands and is pretty sure that he is in a safe place right now after performing so well this season but he is still open to various other deals that might get him a bit more than he has to and that will be possible if one shows no progress throughout the season and that it is crucial to be consistent to keep getting offers.
“And we’ll see. I got a little bit of time, I guess. Honestly, even if you’re secure like I am, you’re always racing, because you got to be able to negotiate for the next better deal. You want to make a little bit more money or whatever it might be. … If you run really bad, you’re not going to be as valuable as you would be if you run really good,” concluded Tyler Reddick.
With Tyler Reddick now standing 13th after winning at Road America, he would be doing himself a favor if he ends up winning yet another race this season to cement his spot in the playoffs.
