Tyler Reddick is making the most out of his move to Richard Childress Racing so far in 2019. The 2018 Xfinity Series Champion has already enjoyed a win in RCR’s No. 2 entry, capturing the checkered flag at Talladega last week.
Perhaps more impressive has been Reddick’s performance everywhere else. The second year Xfinity driver has gone toe to toe with Christopher Bell, Cole Custer and Kyle Busch, holding his own as a consistent top three contender in the series.
He’s now turning that success into another Monster Energy Cup Series start for the legendary team. Reddick announced on Wednesday that he will race the No. 31 entry for RCR at Kansas Speedway, marking his second start of 2019. The race will also be the second Cup start of Reddick’s career.
Reddick finished 27th after finding trouble on pit road in the Daytona 500 this year, his only other Cup start to date.
The 23 year old driver has quickly become a legitimate Cup prospect over the past six months. He’s found his footing in the sport by joining RCR, giving the organization a clear candidate if they want to expand back out to three cars in the coming seasons.
