NASCAR NEWS & NOTES

    Reddick In Rhythm

    Tyler Reddick started off the season slow with no top-10 finishes in his first four races, but is starting to hit his groove. Reddick, last season’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship runner-up, has placed 10th or better in six of the last seven races and has four top fives over that span.

    Currently, Reddick ranks eighth on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase Grid - 18 points above ninth-place Ben Kennedy on the cutoff line - heading into Saturday’s Pocono Mountains 150 at Pocono Raceway (1 p.m. ET on FS1).

    "Pocono is a place I was able to pick up on very fast and a lot of that credit goes to crew chief Doug Randolph and all the guys on the Cooper Standard team that bring an outstanding package to that racetrack,” Reddick said. “It’s made my job fairly simple to go out there and put down a good lap right away. I have a lot of confidence in the Cooper Standard Ford F-150, everyone on our team. Brad Keselowski Racing has won there before so I have no problem driving it really hard into the corners. I have absolute faith in those guys and what they do.”

    NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase Outlook

    Five races remain until the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase. Currently, five drivers are virtually guaranteed berths since they have won a race, but that could change if there are more than eight winners. The berths would then be determined by number of wins, followed by points.


    The Chase Grid reads as follows: William Byron (4 wins), Matt Crafton (2 wins), Johnny Sauter (1 win), John Hunter Nemechek (1 win), Christopher Bell (1 win), Daniel Hemric (46 points ahead of Ben Kennedy on the cutoff line), Timothy Peters (+27) and Tyler Reddick (+18).

     

    Ben Kennedy (-18), Cameron Hayley (-23), Cole Custer (-25) and Ben Rhodes (-32) are the first four out.

     

    Moffitt Back Behind The Wheel For Red Horse Racing

    2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year Brett Moffitt will be back behind the wheel of the Red Horse Racing No. 11 Toyota Tundra Saturday at Pocono. Moffitt debuted for Red Horse Racing at Kentucky, finishing 31st due to engine trouble after starting second.

    Dirt ace Jake Griffin, 17, piloted the No. 11 to a fourth-place finish last week at Eldora.

    Abreu Logs Career-Best Finish

    Rico Abreu finished a career-best third at Eldora after starting all the way back in 27th. On the season, the NASCAR Next alumnus claims one top five, three top 10s and an average finish of 15.7 in 11 starts. Despite his strong showing, Abreu sits 14th on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase Grid - 52 points behind Tyler Reddick for the final berth - and will likely need a win to get into the series playoffs.

    Hayley Hopes To Repeat Pocono Success

    Cameron Hayley heads to Pocono Raceway where he battled Kyle Busch last year for the win before finishing fourth. Hayley enters Saturday’s Pocono Mountains 150 in good form with three top sevens in his last three starts, including a third-place showing at Iowa. The Canadian NASCAR Next alumnus currently sits 10th on the Chase Grid, 23 points behind Tyler Reddick for the last spot. On the season, he has two top fives, five top 10s and a 13.4 average finish in 11 starts.
