The 2022 season marked the third full-time cup season for No:8 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driver Tyler Reddick and the two times NASCAR Xfinity series champion is yet to secure a cup race win in his 86 outings. Though Reddick has come close to a win two times so far this season he missed out on being at the right place at the right time on both occasions and finished P2.
Tyler Reddick will hit the Kansas speedway this Sunday hoping for a win by taking in all the momentum he had after the P2 finish last week at Darlington. Last week was clearly a bounce ack race for Reddick as was able to break into the top five after two consecutive finishes outside the Top30.
Now the 26 years old has come forth expressing his thoughts on the coming cup race and his chances at Kansas.

Tyler Reddick claimed that he expects his Kansas speedway Cup Race to be similar to the racing experience at Homestead-Miami Speedway as he expects the race to be an unforgiving one. He went on to say that he expects a lot to run to the wall where there are small margins of error as mistakes than can be costly for both the driver as well as fellow competitors.
“I think this weekend’s race at Kansas Speedway is going to be a lot like the races we’ve seen at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The race will be a very unforgiving one. There will be a lot of running the wall with little to no room for error. The margin of error is so small and if you make one mistake, you could take yourself and others out of the race,” Tyler Reddick said.
Tyler Reddick went on to say that the strategies and t=risk taken at the right time will be the deciding factor at the oval. He went on to say that his driving style calls for a lot of running the wall which makes listening to the instructions given by his spotter and new crew chief of high priority to minimize the risk as he doesn’t want to finish the race dead last due to an early exit.
“It’s going to be a lot of strategies and deciding when the right time is to take a risk. Certainly, with my driving style, running the wall is going to be a huge part of my race but it’s also important to listen to my crew chief and spotter and weigh the risk versus reward. You don’t want to get out there in the first stage and dive into the wall and end up finishing 38th,” Tyler Reddick added.
