Tyler Reddick wants to “win at other tracks in addition to the street courses,” which can put the team on track to the playoffs
The 23rd round of the NASCAR cup competition at Michigan International Speedway, and with just four days of racing remaining in the 2022 regular season, it is imperative that every driver perform at their best. The winless drivers are looking forward to the crucial win that could confirm their position in the playoffs this season as competition between them Chase Eliot and Ross Chastain for the regular season title is heating up.
Tyler Reddickthe No.: 8 Chevy Camaro ZL1 driver for Richard Childress Racing will be one of the main drivers to look up to in Michigan as he heads into the race with the momentum and confidence he had from winning the Indy Road course race, which was his second win of the season, the first being the street america to win.
Reddick, who has already cemented his place in the playoffs, is in a difficult situation in terms of his relationship with RCR after his announced move to 23X1 race in 2024, so in order to have a peaceful and productive run next year, he needs to impress the team and make them believe he’s worth investing fully, even if it’s just for a year. He will be eager to prove that point in the next two non-road races Richmond and this weekend in Michigan as we fight hard for another win for the No. 8 team.

Find out what Tyler Reddick had to say about his participation in the Michigan Cup race and his hopes of winning
Tyler Reddick acknowledged that the Michigan Cup race is very different from Pocono because the surface texture changes with age, which will have a big impact on racing. He added that looking back at Pocono, the preferred lane is center, but going into Michigan, the Harz Mountains will dictate what the preferred lane might be.
“They can be the same size and shape, but the surface ages are very, very different. We’ll see if we use resin and if so how much we use. That will certainly play a role in how the race develops. Looking back at Pocono, the preferred groove was the middle lane in the Harz Mountains. It all depends on how well the track is prepared and how much resin is applied to it‘ said Tyler Reddick.
Tyler Went went on to talk about how the two wins he’s secured will set him up for the playoffs, saying that while they put some valuable playoff points in their pocket, they’d like a win of a different kind must secure routes than on street courses. He added that the No. 8 will work hard to earn more playoff points in the future, which can ensure his team goes into the playoffs mentally and confidently.
“It’s really nice that we’ve won two races this year because we now have more playoff points in our pockets. We would like to win other routes in addition to the street courses but we will win where we can for now. We definitely had the potential to win in different places. We’re just going to keep working hard and hopefully in the coming weeks we’ll win a few more races, get more playoff points and put our entire Guaranteed Rate team in a good position mentally and confidently to go into the playoffsadded Tyler Reddick.
Tyler Reddick’s RCR teammate and No.3 Camaro ZL1 driver Austin Dillon, who is in desperate need of a win, has admitted he expects to have a strong car, just like they did in Michigan last year, which helped them to put up good runs so they might be able to put themselves in the payoff by securing that all-important win.
“We had a strong Chevy at Michigan International Speedway last year and I expect the same for this year. I’m really looking forward to the race. Michigan is a place where we’ve run well in the past, and it’s a place we’ve circled to try to win and get into the NASCAR playoffssays Austin Dillon.
