2019 NASCAR Xfinity Series point leader Tyler Reddick is moving on up with Richard Childress Racing. He’ll make a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start in the Digital Ally 400 at Kansas Speedway May 11.
This news was revealed on NBC Sports Network’s NASCAR America.
“(Kansas) is a place I’ve had my fair share of bouncing off the wall,” Reddick said. “But it’s a really good race car. Hoping to try my luck with this new aero package, see if I can run it wide-open right against the fence and see how fast I can go.”
Reddick will again be piloting the No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro for RCR. He drove the car to a 27th-place finish after a late crash in the closing laps of February’s Daytona 500.
The reigning Xfinity Series champion will also have a big moment this weekend at Dover International Speedway. He’s one of four drivers running for the Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonus.
Reddick has eight top-10 finishes in nine races this season. He was also the winner at Talladega Superspeedway this past weekend.
In two Xfinity Series races at Kansas, Reddick has a pole and two top-five finishes. He also ran 13th both times he visited the track in NASCAR’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
