With all of the silly season rumors starting to fly around regarding the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season – Tyler Reddick can be removed from those.
The rookie of the year contender and driver of the No. 8 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing confirmed in a teleconference on Friday that he will be returning to RCR next season.
“I’m glad I know where I’m going to be next year. I’m going to be with RCR,” said Reddick. “So, I’m not necessarily allowing the pressure to come off by any means. We still want to make the Playoffs, we still want to run really good this year. We want to beat the other drivers that are competing for Rookie of the Year. So, it’s not going to take away my aggression any, knowing that for the first time in a while I guess, in my racing career, knowing that I’m going to be in the same place is nice.”
In 20 NASCAR Cup Series races this season, Reddick has two top-five and seven top-10 finishes. He currently sits 15th in the driver points standings heading into this weekends double header at Michigan International Speedway.
